The days of the family dinner may have gone by the wayside. But the need for good nutrition and companionship never becomes obsolete. Web seminar presenter Molly Carpenter discusses the importance of mealtime companionship and nutrition, and will challenge caregivers to take the “Sunday Night Dinner Pledge” to bring back important companionship for older adults and their families. This web seminar will feature 10 warning signs that an older adult’s nutritional needs may be compromised. Resources will include menu plans for older adults that can make family caregiving easier for seniors, as well as recipes from Food Network Star Melissa d’Arabian.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe at least five ways to help families bring back family mealtimes;
  • Identify the reasons companionship is so important to seniors; and,
  • List the 10 warning signs that an older adult’s nutritional needs may be compromised.
