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 Lakelyn Hogan 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 older adults, 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 elders; and,
  • List the 10 warning signs that an older adult’s nutritional needs may be compromised.

Presenter:

Lakelyn Hogan is currently working toward a Master of Arts in Social Gerontology. Lakelyn’s passion for helping others has led her work with aging adults and their families as they navigate the senior care continuum.
