Eating to Live Longer & Better
Medical science has shown conclusively that how we eat impacts both quality of life and life expectancy. Diet has been tied to the biomarkers of longevity as well as noticeable effects on daily well being including increased energy, reduction of inflammation and improvement of memory and cognitive function. Meal time also tends to take on a larger social role post retirement, both for those in senior living communities and those aging in place. Quite simply, the nutritional program is one of the most direct ways to visibly improve the retirement experience. Join us to learn the basics of senior nutrition to the fine points of creating the optimum dining experience to address both general senior needs as well as specific conditions, such as dementia and depression. This is an interactive program that includes a demonstration and a lunch consisting of the results.
