As people age, it becomes more important to maintain good nutrition in order to maintain strength and reduce the risk of disease. However, for older adults, eating healthily can be a challenge due to health issues and reduced activity levels. A decreased appetite and difficulty with meal planning and preparation are common barriers that can make it difficult to get the nutrients needed for optimal health.
To help overcome these challenges, Parkview Health offers a local resources database that connects older adults with assistance for food, housing, health services, transportation, and legal support. This resource can be a valuable tool in helping older adults find the support they need to maintain good nutrition and overall well-being.
In addition to the resources database, Parkview Residency Center provides an opportunity for older adults to have a resident physician as part of their care team. This allows for an individualized care plan with oversight by highly qualified physicians and access to the latest health information and treatments.
