The health and nutrition of our senior residents are priorities at Pacific Carlton, a seniors’s community in White Rock, BC. A healthy senior is a happy senior, and we set up our residents to succeed. We have in-house professional chefs preparing delicious and nutritious meals three times a day, in addition to providing full kitchens in every suite for residents to prepare meals on their own.
Common Dietary Deficiencies
The body’s ability to absorb essential vitamins and nutrients decreases as it ages. Seniors often have deficiencies in calcium, which is important for bone density and strength. Calcium is found is dark leafy greens and dairy products. Another nutrient that aging individuals often aren’t getting enough of is potassium, which is found in fruits and vegetables, as well as beans and legumes, milk and yogurt, nuts, fish, meat, and poultry. Potassium is essential for cell function and has also been shown to help reduce high blood pressure and the risk of kidney stones.
Pacific Carlton’s In-Suite Cooking
One of the highlights of Pacific Carlton’s senior community is that each of our suites are outfitted with full kitchens. We understand our residents want the freedom to continue life as normal, simply with added safety and support. Knowing there is staff readily available to assist in any way, our residents can feel confident in their independence.
Equipped with their full kitchens, residents living in retirement at Pacific Carlton can ensure they are getting the necessary nutrients and vitamins they need. We encourage them to continue to make family favourite recipes but encourage adding additional ingredients or sides to get the level of nutrition needed.
