Do you know where a good percentage of health issues stem from in Seniors citizens? If you do, then you can head to a different blog post on my site, if you don’t stay here and I will tell you what I have been told. outside of falls, the next highest cause of health issues in Seniors is improper medication. Either forgetting to take the property medications, no taking enough of certain mediations, of neglecting to tak their meds at all.
The next major cause of health issues is the lack of a sound, healthy diet. Forgetting to eat, loss of appetite, and just a lack of interest in eating are all big trouble for our senior citizens. WebMd had some great suggestions for you to help your loved ones, or yourself:
“… you get older, it can be harder to eat in healthy ways. If you have health problems or can’t be active, you may not feel as hungry as you used to. You may not plan and make meals as often.
The following is a list of common nutrition problems older adults have, plus some ideas for solutions.
