Dietary and nutritional support
A well-balanced diet not only fuels the body – it also benefits the mind and soul. Nourishing the body with a wholesome diet is important for all ages, but is particularly important for individuals that might be more at risk of infection or illness.
As we grow older, our bodies require continual nutritional adjustment to ward off any nutrient deficiencies or imbalances. Malnutrition can often be mistaken for illness, so it’s vitally important that elderly people get the balanced diet they require to thrive.
