Nourishing body and soul: food and mealtimes in long-term care
Professor Heather Keller's research has shown malnourishment is prevalent in Canadian long-term care facilities.
As we age, proper nutrition is even more important. It can help keep our skin from breaking down, may help prevent falls and help us to stay independent and doing the things we want to do, writes Heather Keller, the Schlegel Research Chair in Nutrition and Aging for the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA) at the University of Waterloo.
