Virtual Summit #3: Integrating nutrition into the lifestyle of older adults

Sponsored by
Abbott Nutrition

The expert faculty presenting during the Virtual Summit will help you sort through the many opinions and hype about food and nutrition by providing a clear picture of older adults' nutritional needs, and giving examples of how you can educate your clients—and yourself—on better food choices.

In this series of webinars, you will overview the nutritional needs of older adults, and then translate that knowledge into food choices that appeal to older adults. You’ll also hear examples of how programming staff work with chefs to provide food-related programming. Even if you work in an organization where food is provided to residents or clients, you can leave with reliable information and new ideas.

If you are a lifestyle or fitness director, chef, health educator or dietitian, this series of webinar is meant for you. The content will be geared to professionals working with people 50 years and older who are generally healthy or living with common chronic conditions. Please note, this webinar will not cover the nutritional needs of frail people in skilled nursing or those requiring specialized nutrition plans from dietitians.

Virtual Summit #2: Using wellness programs to enhance cognitive health

Wellness programs that encourage brain health are in high demand from older adults who want to be healthy and live independently—and from organizations that serve them. Professionals who develop lifestyle/wellness programs are uniquely positioned to plan solutions for people who are cognitively well today, and for those journeying through cognitive decline.

During the 4.5 hour ICAA Virtual Summit, a special web-based learning experience, you will:

• lay the foundation by understanding how lifestyle choices affect the risk of decline,
• discover techniques to plan a multidimensional program for brain health,
• follow case studies of organizations that have implemented programs appropriate for people who are cognitively healthy as well as those who are experiencing mild-to-moderate symptoms of dementia.

Note: The Virtual Summit is focused on nonmedical approaches to promote quality of life.
