Gardens that Share in Aged Care

Nutrition is so important throughout our lives and especially as older adults living in aged care. Older adults are at increased risk of malnutrition due to their changing nutrition needs as a result of loss of appetite, illness, their reduced independence and ability to cook or shop for themselves due to mobility or other related factors. Food and the nutritional value of food provided to consumers has a significant impact on their quality of life as well as their overall health and wellbeing; reducing illness, delaying onset and the longevity of illnesses.
