After a day of indulging, ending the meal with a fiber-rich food can help keep a sensitive senior’s digestive tract healthy. Encourage healthy snacking throughout the day by offering nuts, multi-grain breads, and cooked vegetables that are soft enough to chew thoroughly.
The average senior will retire around 63 but the effects of aging may not show for a few more years. When you want to treat your loved one to a great Thanksgiving, think about bringing holiday food to them at their assisted living facilities.
The need for specialized care can strike at any time and you may need to make some adjustments this holiday season. Assisted living facilities work hard to ensure the health and needs of your loved one are met with the care and expertise only offered through years of experience.
