Kitchen Conversations

Show notes KITCHEN

 

Today, Michael Lawler from Eat Me Nutrition joins Phill at the kitchen table for “Kitchen Conversations”.

 

Michael is a nutritionist.  He shares his own personal story about how a nutritionist had an enormous impact of his life and quality of life at a crucial stage in his early years.  That instilled a great passion to impact that wisdom with others to have  a similar impact on their quality of life.

 

Not only does Michael cover some important lessons about why nutrition for the elderly is critically important, but he also talks about how a good diet is just as important for family caregivers.

 

Michael gives us some insights into the fact that there a number of health care professionals who contribute greatly to the care of a person.   The role of the nutritionist can help greatly in conjunction with each of those other professionals, such as the General Practitioner.

 

Nutrition has a direct link to our wellness, so the importance of this for both a family caregiver and those who are receiving support is incredibly important.

Lessons From The Study

Show notes STUDY

 

This week, Phill discusses an issue that is extremely close to his heart.  Those who are ageing in place or are disabled and find themselves alone at home for a great deal of time should make sure that they have connections with their community so that they stay visible.  There are many stories of people who have had falls or become unwell and not been able to raise the alarm.  Being aware and connected with your neighbours might just save your life or improve your recovery time to raise that alarm early.
