As your parent ages, he or she may lose interest in food. If your mother or father lives alone, mealtimes may be lonely. If your parent has a reduced sense of taste or smell, food may seem less appetizing. Medications, too, can take a toll on appetite. For aging parents with physical or mental impairments, difficulties with grocery shopping and preparing meals may be obstacles to good nutrition. Even when seniors do eat well, they may not fully absorb all their nutrients. Meanwhile, our nutritional needs change as we age. It all adds up to special needs—which can be met through a variety of SYNERGY HomeCare’s homecare meal services.
