Nutrition Talks for Elderly on Chronic Diseases Prevention

During January 2024, the registered dietitian of our centre was invited by Hong Kong Toi Shan Association Neighbourhood Elderly Centre to conduct four nutrition talks, aiming to help the elderly understand dietary tips for preventing and managing 4 common chronic conditions including high cholesterol, hypertension, sarcopenia, and osteoporosis. In order to further assist the elderly in mastering what they have learned, our centre prepared healthy recipes and food ingredient packs which corresponding to the topic of each session for the participants to take home, where they were required to follow the recipes and use the ingredients in the ingredient packs to prepare healthy dishes at home as homework. Throughout the entire activity, participants not only acquired health knowledge but also enjoyed the process of cooking and the healthy meals they prepared for themselves. All the elderly were delighted to be a part of it!
