Discuss what obstacles might keep the elderly from working on their nutritional self.
Please read all instructions carefully until the end.
Nutrition plays a huge part in the aging population; however, there are many factors the aging population face. Factors can include decreased monies, living alone, too many co-morbidities with diet considerations for each or living in a facility that serves limited food choices not considering the many diet factors. Think outside the box….what are the newest ways to get healthy? Nutrition can include vitamins, supplements, and medicinal oils. As long as you have references for what you post, you may include holistic nutrition. If you have experience with the elderly, be to share this also.
