Independent living communities provide a variety of amenities, one of which is catered dining. The great meals available at a retirement community can help seniors get the nutrition they need.
This video provides information on healthy diets for seniors. Implementing healthy eating habits is important at any age, but especially so for the elderly. Whole grains are an essential part of any senior’s diet. High in fiber and rich in carbohydrates, whole grains such as brown rice and bran can aid the digestive process. Raw fruits and vegetables provide beneficial antioxidants and vitamins, while protein-packed foods such as salmon and eggs provide invaluable nutrients to aid memory function in the elderly.
