Waterview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Highlights its Outstanding Dietary Department

Flushing area nursing home Waterview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center supports March National Nutrition Month

 
PRLog - Mar. 24, 2014 - March is National Nutrition Month, an observance that is widely overlooked, yet universally important to every member of our society. As people age, nutrition becomes more important to overall health, especially in regards to the elderly population. Proper diet and nutrition helps elderly individuals keep their minds sharp and alert, while also increasing energy. However, the elderly have different needs than the rest of the population, which is why Waterview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Flushing, New York, would like to share helpful tips about maintaining a healthy diet after the age of 50.

Use less salt! Reduce your sodium intake to reduce water retention and high blood pressure.

Eat good fats! Avocados, olive oil, walnuts, and salmon are all examples of “good fats” that can protect you from bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol.

Go fiber! Fiber is a crucial part of a nutritional diet, as it reduces constipation, lowers your risk of chronic disease, and helps you feel more full when eating.

Eat more veggies! The best way to prepare vegetables is by steaming or sautéing them in olive oil. Olive oil preserves nutrients and is a great example of the good fats doctors recommend.

Diversify your plate! A helpful tip from Japanese food culture is to include five colors on your plate. Fruits and veggies rich in color correspond to rich nutrients (blackberries, melons, yams, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini).

“Our dietary department is a crucial aspect of our operations here at Waterview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and we take great pride in the food we make here. We understand that many health issues our residents encounter can potentially be avoided with the right diet. Our dietary department is superb, and works with every resident individually to create personalized nutrition plans. This being Nutrition Month, we salute the work they do and thank them for it,” said Michael Berger, Administrator at Waterview.
