Adopting Seniors Nutritional Day
We invited Tara Miltenberger-Registered Dietitian at Cedar Crest
College-Community Outreach Program. She spoke to our Seniors in groups of 3 to
4. Tara explained all about nutrition. She asked questions. At the end of Tara
adopting each of the Seniors, we handed out certificates of Adoption & they were
given a basket of 3 pieces of fruit. Recipes & handouts on nutrition were also
given to each Senior. It went very well & our Seniors were more knowledgeable
after the program & they enjoyed the program!
Time and Manpower
The time was approx one week and there were 3 of us Rose O'Brien, Tara
Miltenberger, & Maryann Coberly
Senior's were handed fliers announcing the event.
Cedar Crest College - Tara Miltenberger Registered Dietician
Tara, Rose and myself will be hosting another Adopt a Senior Nutritional
Day, sometime later in the fall.
Impact On Center
Great impact! The Seniors learned many helpful tips on nutrition that they
did not know before attending.
A great tip is to make each Senior feel special, and to help each one of
them become more informed with nutritional information that will ultimately
benefit their health!
