Seniors are at higher risk for food borne illness due to the limits in their immune system from aging. In addition, seniors with dementia may not remember to prepare and store food properly. When this happens, there is a higher likelihood of food borne illness leading to serious illness. Seniors with dementia may also forget to eat due to their disease and suffer malnutrition and dehydration. Having a caregiver in the home can assure that seniors are eating a nutritious diet and that food preparation and storage is safe.
