As people age, maintaining good nutrition becomes increasingly important for their overall health and well-being. However, older adults may face several challenges in eating healthy, such as decreased appetite and difficulty planning and preparing meals. Additionally, lack of access to healthy food options can also be a barrier for many seniors.
Fortunately, there are resources available to help overcome these challenges and maintain good nutrition. One such resource is the local resources database offered by Parkview Health. This database connects older adults with assistance for food, housing, health services, transportation, and legal support. By utilizing these resources and support networks, seniors can better manage their nutrition needs and reduce the risk of disease.
In addition to the local resources database, Parkview Health also offers the Parkview Residency Center. This center provides seniors with the opportunity to have a resident physician as part of their care team. With oversight from highly qualified physicians and access to the latest health information and treatments, individuals living at the Residency Center can receive an individualized care plan that meets their unique nutritional needs.
