How to Prevent Malnutrition in Seniors
Malnutrition is a significant risk for seniors, who struggle to eat for a number of different reasons. Seniors who are living with dementia are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition, and a major focus of memory care in assisted living centers is building healthy diets for residents.

For seniors, eating is not always easy. In addition to problems with lack of access to food, seniors may take medications that decrease their appetites, and their taste buds may change, making eating less appealing. For people with dementia, remembering to eat can be a problem. Continuous memory care can help counteract dementia-related eating issues with scheduled meal times.
