Nutrition for Age 50+ Course

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the nutritional requirements for adults over the age of 50 years. Credited to factors such as advancements in medicine and the society in which we live, ‘life expectancy’ has increased dramatically over the last two hundred years and, with a trend towards more conscious food purchasing, healthy ageing has become a priority. Only recently has research fully explored the startling difference between the health of men and women and how diet can play a role in many gender-specific health conditions.

This course provides an in-depth study of many diet-related health issues, providing valuable advice to therapists advising clients over 50 on healthy eating practices. Students will learn how to guide their clients on balancing meals and controlling portion sizes, understanding current research on nutrition and its potential role in the development of Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Students will also be introduced to the cardiovascular system and dietary choices impacting heart health. Additional subjects focus on the digestive system and healthy gut flora, eating for joint and bone health, healthy eating tips and healthy food swaps. Further guidance is given on planning a safe and effective nutrition programme.

Practitioners from all specialisations now acknowledge the crucial role food plays and the multitude of nutrients it supplies for our physical and emotionally well-being, with changes leading to almost immediate and noticeable differences in our mood, stress levels, energy levels and ultimately health.
