5 Nutrition Myths Seniors Believe

Nutrition myths have become common, with all the
misinformation circulating the web. It is
important for family caregivers to neglect the
myths and discover the truth in order to promote
health and happiness of their senior loved ones.
One of the leading Tucson in-home care providers
discuss the common myths and facts of seniors
nutrition to allow your loved ones remain healthy
as they age.

1. It is normal for seniors lose their appetite
Its a common myth that seniors have a slower
metabolism and they don't eat much. In fact,
losing appetite is an indication of underlying
health issues. Consult a doctor if your loved one
experiences a drastic decrease in his or her
weight.

2. Skipping meals is safe 
This is linked to the myth that it is common for
seniors to lose their appetite. Your loved one
may need more nutrients than young adults.
Therefore, skipping meals is neither healthy nor
safe for seniors. Increasing the consumption of
Calcium and Vitamin B12 is, in fact, recommended
for seniors.

3. Malnutrition doesn't occur in the United States
It is one of the most dangerous myths. In fact,
malnutrition is commonly found among senior all
over the world. It is due to the insufficient
finances to maintain a healthy diet.
4. Seniors dont need extra as long as they
maintain a healthy diet
No matter how healthy your loved one is, he or
she is still at risk of several health problems,
among which most are age related. Certain food
interactions with prescribed medications may also
pose health risks. While younger adults may not
need extra nutrition, seniors need more vitamins
and nutrients to remain healthy.

5. It doesn't matter if seniors eat alone

Meals are not only a time to nourish the body,
but a time for socialization as well. Many
seniors, whether by choice or circumstance, eat
alone. This may increase loneliness, depression,
cognitive decline, and difficulty in preparing a
healthy meal. Many seniors who live alone choose
to visit senior community centers where they can
enjoy meals and interact with other
people. Families should also visit their senior
loved ones regularly so they can have a chance to
enjoy a delightful dinner with their
grandchildren. Seniors can lead a healthy and
productive life by separating these myths from
facts. Noticing the signs of malnutrition is
crucial for families so their loved ones can
maintain a physical and mental health. If your he
or she needs help maintaining a healthy
lifestyle, consider hiring professional at-home
caregivers, Tucson,AZ families trust.
