Why is nutrition important for the elderly?
We all know how important it is, but what does it actually mean? The answer is, “right” is different for different people. Calorie requirements change as people age due to increased body fat, decreased muscle and less activity. This means that meeting nutrient needs becomes more of a challenge for seniors. It’s important to choose foods that are high in nutrients in relation to the calories they contain. The following are a few examples of foods that can help seniors cut calories while keeping a nutrient-rich diet.
Protein needs typically do not change for older adults; however some proteins, like turkey, chicken, and fish, are healthier than red meats. Other foods with protein include: Poultry, Eggs, Peas, Beans, Tofu, and Nuts.
Calcium is a very important nutrient that helps minimize bone loss in older adults. Milk, cheese, and yogurt are all good sources of calcium, as are: Figs, Tofu, Kale, White beans and Cabbage
Low levels of vitamin B12 have been associated with memory loss and dementia and have been linked to age-related hearing loss in older adults. For a diet rich in B12, try the following foods: Meat, Eggs, Fish, and Dairy (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.)
Knowing what foods are right for your loved one is helpful when planning nutritious meals. At Partners in Healthcare, we understand the challenges that arise when planning and preparing meals for older individuals or those who have eating issues. The Nurses at Partners in Healthcare are available to talk with you about your nutritional needs and in-home care needs including how to reduce caregiver stress while providing better, affordable care.
