It can be challenging for elders living on a fixed income to eat well. Yet, healthy nutrition is essential to prevent illness, and to maintain an active and independent life. The National Council on Aging recently put together 3 short videos on how to get help paying for food, ways to shop smart, and tips to make comfort foods healthier. Please view and share with your clients and loved ones.
Elders with low-incomes, can also visit NCOA’s BenefitsCheckUp website to download their state’s application for food assistance.
