Due to challenges associated with aging, most seniors, whether overweight or underweight, experience malnutrition. Malnutrition is a significant health risk for elderly individuals because it can worsen existing chronic conditions or lead to new health issues. Recognizing the difficulties many seniors face in maintaining a healthy diet, at Amorycare of Garfield, we have incorporated meal planning and preparation into our home senior care services.

Why Eating Clean Might Be Difficult for Aging Adults

There are many factors that cause seniors to become malnourished. The most prevalent among them are:

Mobility Challenges

With the decline in mobility and strength, elderly individuals find it difficult to complete numerous daily activities, such as grocery shopping and food preparation.

Convenient Meal Choices

When elderly individuals face challenges in moving around or driving, many opt for convenience over health, resorting to unhealthy fast food and frozen TV dinners. Although cost-effective, these meals are high in salt and other unhealthy components that can deteriorate health and well-being.

Reduced Appetite

Elderly individuals frequently experience a decrease in appetite due to medication side effects or mental health issues like depression and loneliness.
