As people age, they are prone to malnutrition due to poor eating habits. However, it’s not entirely because of the diet they have, but mostly due to their loss of interest in food. Being alone at home makes mealtimes lonely and dull and may, therefore, cause your elderly parents to lose their appetite.
Aging may also reduce an elderly’s sense of taste and smell, which makes food even less appetizing. If your loved one is physically or mentally impaired, shopping for groceries and cooking and preparing healthy meals would also be impossible to do on their own.
Other reasons include swallowing difficulties, the medications they are taking, and the lack of proper diet prescribed by an expert nutritionist. With the help of our friendly and compassionate caregivers, All Phases Companion Care, your elderly and homebound loved one may now enjoy their meals again, with healthy and appetizing food and great company.
