What Should an 85-Year-Old Eat?

According to the National Resource Center on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Aging, one million seniors in the US who age at home suffer from under-nutrition. To prevent malnutrition and possible health complications, make sure you consume various foods daily.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are a significant source of vitamins and minerals. In addition, thoroughly cooked fish and seafood are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that can help prevent or ease osteoporosis, avoid the loss of brain cells, and reduce the risk of dementia.

Make sure to include beans and lentils in your diet. Foods like beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc., contain lots of fiber, antioxidants, and minerals essential for an aging person’s health.

Also, consume two to three servings of milk, yogurt, or cheese to nourish your bones.

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.
