What’s for Dinner? Moving from Diet Prescription to Permission

Since food nourishes the spirit as well as the body, can meal satisfaction prevent weight loss and improve the quality of life for older adults?  Join us as we investigate the science supporting relaxing diet restrictions for older adults resident in healthcare settings (long term care, short term rehabilitation, and assisted living).

Practical suggestions will be discussed for enhancing dining programs to provide older adults an atmosphere that encourages social interaction, which increases food consumption and enhances quality of life.

This evidence -based session provides information and case studies on the value of individualized nutrition approaches for older adults with specific diseases.

In the workshop the attendees will:

  • Understand the consequences of under-nutrition for older adults in healthcare communities
  • Examine the research of disease specific conditions and restricted diets
  • Advocate for menu options and dining programs that support choice and enhance quality of life
