Senior Meals/Food

Eating well is important for your overall health - no matter what your age is.

Good nutrition:

  • boosts your immune system

  • increases your energy level

  • gives you increased resistance to disease

  • speeds up your recuperation time from illness or surgery

  • helps you better manage chronic health problems

Eating well makes you feel better, both physically and emotionally. As you grow older there may be barriers to healthy eating:

  •  eating alone is lonely
  • your appetite has changed

  • you are no longer able to prepare meals or you have no interest in cooking

  • you are not able to go grocery shopping

  • your budget is tight
