Changes in our bodies as we age, and changing dietary needs, can make healthy eating more difficult for older adults. Join Comfort Keepers to learn how to meet your dietary needs.

At least one in nine seniors is at risk of going hungry due to the inability to obtain food for their household, or from having to choose between food and medical care, according to The Mayo clinic.  Too many seniors are not having their nutritional needs met. Changes in our bodies as we age, and changing dietary needs, can make healthy eating more difficult for older adults. 

One in three hospital patients is malnourished upon admission and almost one-third of Canadian patients’ experiences declines in nutritional status while in the hospital.

The health risks associated with malnutrition can be especially concerning for seniors. Symptoms can include:

  • Weakened immune system
  • Poor wound healing
  • Muscle weakness
  • Weight loss
  • Dental issues

In response to a growing need for awareness about senior nutrition, Comfort Keepers offices across the U.S. and Canada are participating in the nationwide Feed Seniors Now campaign. This drive aims to help seniors preserve their independence by providing diet and nutrition information, encouragement and necessities. 


The health and safety of our participants and staff is our top priority, please review our Stay Safe Guidelines.
