Nutrition needs vary with age and gender.
Aged care catering requires skills and knowledge, cost effectiveness and a high level of quality assurance involving food handling, cooking processes and special diet preparation.
There are a number of issues that can make it difficult for seniors to eat a good diet. Many seniors have a lack of interest in cooking and their changing taste buds may lead to general apathy in regard to food. Taking an array of medications may lead to older adults not being able to taste the food they’re eating due to side effects from the medicines.
