What are the 8 Fatal Foods for Seniors

As we age, our calorie needs decrease. However, our nutrient needs either stay the same or even increase. In other words, you need to have a regular intake of nutrient-rich foods to get the necessary amount of vitamins, protein, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates.

At the same time, you should limit foods high in calories but low in nutrients, such as deep-fried foods, desserts, sweetened beverages, and alcohol.

The eight fatal foods that can pose a danger for your health and should be avoided are:

  1. Raw fish
  2. Raw eggs
  3. Raw meat
  4. Soda
  5. Unpasteurized milk
  6. Deli meats
  7. Baked goods
  8. Alcohol

Good lawd…starving is bad too. Sushi is bad? Wonder if the elderly Japanese know that. Soda?…guess Coke Zero is out. Baked goods covers alot of ground. Most deli meats aren’t even good for dogs. On that note, some elderly eat dog food.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
