When you live alone and it comes time to make a meal, it is usually easier to skip it or pop something in the microwave. Patterns like these lead seniors to weight loss, depression, and lack of nutrition which all cause a seniors health to fail.
According to research conducted by Home Instead Senior Care:
Nearly half (43%) of those with senior relatives either don’t think their senior loved ones are eating nutritious and balanced meals daily or don’t know if they are.
I am sure that you know what your children are having for dinner. Do you know what your mom, dad, or grandparent is eating though???
