How Many Sacks Can You Fill???
More than 1 in 3 seniors in the care of others are at risk for under- or mal-nutrition (Mayo Clinic/American Dietetic Association). Malnutrition is the lack of proper nutrition, not necessarily a lack of food. Detecting malnutrition in seniors may be difficult, and even seniors who eat enough may be eating the wrong foods to keep themselves healthy. At Comfort Keepers®, we help seniors live healthy, independent lives. That’s why we have created an initiative to address senior nutrition issues.
Comfort Keepers of Lubbock is partnering with Lubbock Meals on Wheels to distribute senior nutritional information and feed seniors on the Lubbock Meals on Wheels weekend meal bag and hot meal programs. These seniors have no assistance with weekend meals other than what is provided through Lubbock Meals on Wheels.
