The Importance of Nutrition in Later Years
Dietary needs change, and maintaining a balanced diet becomes vital for various reasons. Firstly, good nutrition boosts immunity, helping fight against common illnesses and chronic diseases. It also plays a critical role in maintaining a healthy weight, ensuring strong bones and muscles, and improving mental acuity. However, as appetites and taste preferences evolve with age, it becomes a challenge to meet these nutritional requirements.
At The Pavilion at Great Hills, we tackle this challenge head-on. Our nutrition programs are not just about providing healthy meals; they are about creating a dietary plan that resonates with the personal needs and preferences of each resident.
