Nutrition for Seniors

Making healthy, nutritious, daily meals can be difficult for several reasons. Often, for seniors, or those with disabilities, getting out to go grocery shopping or the simple act of cooking may be difficult. Dexterity can be an issue or mobility. Or, it may be that cooking and eating a full meal alone just isn’t appealing. It may not always be apparent right away that someone needs help with meals. Signs to look for include: rotting and past-due food in the fridge, or a fridge or pantry that is empty or not stocked with healthy essentials. Also - watch for dishes and pans being consistently left in the sink or on countertops - this could mean someone is losing the strength to lift them in and out of cupboards. Multiple cuts on hands and fingers may mean that cutting skills are becoming shaky. Do you have a family member or friend who can continue to live independently, but may need help with daily meals? Are you looking for affordable meal delivery service for yourself? Or do you, or someone you know need to find short-term or temporary meal delivery following a surgery or sickness? There are many options available, and we are here to help you find them. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
