Dietary Challenges for Individuals with Memory Loss and Alzheimer’s
Avalon Memory Care provides comprehensive care for all of our residents. Without continuous care, many individuals with memory loss or dementia may struggle to get the nutrients their bodies desperately need. Our Avalon Memory Care team is ready to help you and your loved one with these challenges.
Many memory care providers report that individuals who have been diagnosed with memory loss struggle to keep up their appetites. While some individuals may be simply less hungry, there is often an underlying reason they are not eating as much. For example, he or she may no longer recognize the food on the plate or may have lost a sharp sense of smell or taste.
At Avalon Memory Care we work with you to insure your loved one is still getting enough nutrients and food. Our locations offer three home-cooked meals every day. To deal with poor appetite, we make sure to offer various options and snack and shakes as supplements.
