According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 50 percent of people over age 50 have high blood pressure. The organization sets aside one day each year to raise awareness on certain health issues and this year’s World Health Day focuses on high blood pressure, or hypertension, an issue faced by many seniors.
“Reducing salt, eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy body weight all help combat high blood pressure, yet many seniors don’t know how to prepare foods that meet those requirements or offer the nutrition they need,” said Elizabeth Elliot, Registered Dietitian at Mom’s Meals, which provides healthy meal delivery to your door. “If you are the child of an aging parent or a caregiver to seniors with high blood pressure, it is extremely important that they get the proper nutrition they need.”
Do your parents or the seniors you care for understand the importance nutrition plays in heart health?
