Fitness and Nutrition

Topics within Fitness and Nutrition

As they age, seniors can encounter a number of obstacles to remaining safe and healthy at home. One is fitness and the other nutrition.

If your loved one has lost interest in eating, you're not alone. Certain illnesses and medications can impact an older adult's appetite. What's more, mealtimes may have lost their appeal if Mom or Dad is living alone.

Staying fit and active also can seem like a difficult goal for many seniors who are unable to do what they once did. Motivating older adults to eat healthy and stay fit are among the most daunting challenges that many family caregivers face.
