Nutrition for the Older Adult, 3rd Edition

Nutrition for the Older Adult, 3rd Edition

Totally updated with new health guidelines, case studies, and clinical conditions. Excellent resource for working in hospitals, nursing homes, and public health. Covers the unique physiological changes and nutritional needs of this aging population as well as clinical guidelines.

Discusses changes that naturally occur with aging, and that disease is not a natural consequence of growing older. Poor nutrition is often a contributing factor to compromised health in the elderly, but it can also be the best therapy for improving health issues.
