As individuals age, falling becomes a more prominent risk and can result in serious consequences that affect one’s health and mobility. Surprisingly, recent studies have found that certain foods that are good sources of vitamin D can boost the skeletal system by assisting calcium uptake that helps to regenerate bone. With that information in mind, the Boca Raton senior care experts at Home Care Assistance wanted to share our favorite delicious (and surprising) foods that can help reduce fall risk among older adults.
Vitamin D can be found naturally in some foods with less prominence than the above-mentioned sources. Pork, eggs and soy yogurt contain about 15% of the RDA, and Tofu provides about 25%. Cod liver oil contains a large amount of vitamin D, but the levels of vitamin A are dangerously high in the product and pose a risk of toxicity.
Sometimes older adults aren’t consuming enough vitamin D through their daily meals because they experience barriers to attaining and preparing food. For instance, some seniors may not have the ability to drive to the grocery store for fresh produce, while others may have difficulty cooking because of an age-related ailment or condition. If this is the case for your aging parent or loved one, consider help from a professional caregiver in Boca Raton. Caregivers can provide part-time care in Boca Raton on an as-needed basis, or can be scheduled for live-in care for around the clock assistance and support.
