10:00-11:00 | Nutrition and Older Adults
Nourishment is essential to living. Food not only provides us with nutritional needs, but also brings us joy and pleasure. That can change as we age. From taste buds changing, dental health can be more challenging, arthritis can make food prep painful, and medications and mood disorders can steal our appetite. And well, we’re often alone and just don’t feel like cooking! Let's learn some quick, easy and healthy ways to meet those needs.
11:00-12:00 | Diffifult Behaviors
As the journey of dementia progresses, many people develop behaviors that can be challenging. This includes restlessness and aggression. We will look at techniques, medication, and tools to help get through these difficult times.
