Proper nutrition is another way InnovAge PACE promotes healing and independence.
A registered dietitian assesses each participant’s nutritional needs, and recommendations are built into personalized care plans.
Nutritional assessments look at food access in the home, as well as the participant’s nutritional status, including:
- Lab work results
- Teeth condition
- Swallowing ability
Our team of dietitians also meets with participants and caregivers to provide education on a variety of health issues like weight loss and diabetes.
Each PACE center provides a balanced hot breakfast and lunch for participants. If needed, we can send home a sack lunch for later in the day.
