BARON:

Piggybacking on Sugar's suggestions, spread out their meals by serving small portions. Sometimes the elderly are too tired to chew, but a hearty bowl of homemade cream of chicken and unsalted crackers are too good to pass up. So is split pea with small croutons and bits of ham.

Consult their dietitian or nutritionist just to be on the safe side before you start putting regular menus together.

Nutrition is very important for the elderly and the sick. Small portitions is the best, of lots of veggies, some rice or potatoes, baked chicken with no skin on, or baked fish or steamed, small portitions of beef is ok but remove as much fat as possable. Never used fryed foods. Giving small portions you can also include an Ensure drink or Boost. These have all the nutrition in one little can.
