Nutrition Tips for Seniors and Caregivers

November 29, 2021

Good nutrition is important, no matter what your age. It gives you energy and can help you control your weight. It may also help prevent some diseases, such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. But managing your diet can be challenging, and managing someone else’s? That can be challenging too. But when we get it right – good nutrition can make our lives better.

 

This week we are joined by Allyssa Overett. Allyssa is a registered dietitian with CICOA. Here to speak with us about common barriers to healthy nutrition and how to overcome them as a caregiver and as an individual.
