For the elderly, eating well is essential to assisting their general health, improve mental acuteness and boosts immunity to assist in providing a resistance to illness.
A poor diet can exacerbate some chronic illnesses and contribute to being in poor health. Eating a healthy diet also helps with general wellbeing, to feel better with a more positive mind and therefore sustain greater emotional balance. It also keeps weight stable and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type-2 diabetes, bone loss and cancer.
Often the elderly have reduced appetites as they age, so to ensure they receive the essential vitamins, minerals and fibre their bodies require it’s imperative that every meal is looked upon as an opportunity to maximise nutrition.
Seasons Aged Care understands the health requirements of the elderly and therefore they have qualified chefs that prepare the meals for residents within their communities. The chefs create restaurant quality meals based on beautiful home-style cooking and manage all aspects of food service and food production, ensuring they use fresh, wholesome ingredients to create healthy, tasty, nutrient-enriched food.
Eating well is very important for the health and nutrition of the elderly. Having a chef and kitchen team onsite ensures properly balanced healthy and nutritional meals are provided. This is just another reason why Seasons Aged Care is setting the standards for quality care within our communities.
