Meal Preparation for Older Adults
As we age, maintaining a healthy diet becomes increasingly crucial, impacting the overall well-being of older adults. For older adults, the challenges of accessing nutritious meals can become apparent, and caregivers play a pivotal role in addressing these concerns. Statistics Canada reports that 34% of Canadians aged 65 and older face the risk of poor nutrition, highlighting the importance of tailored nutritional support.
