Nutrition and presents for the elderly

Meal for the elders
Meal for the elders

Nutrition is very important for everyone and specially for the elderly.  The elders must change their nutritional habits because of several reasons:  they may lose their appetite, their teeth or health conditions requires a change in their diet.  Proyecto La Nueva Esperanza is aware that the elders and the relatives must know the appropriate way to deal with these changes.  The nurse who visits our participants provides orientation in this area as well as the importance of taking the prescribed medicines as indicated.  Our organization distributes the meals during the weekends taking the nutritional aspect seriously.  Each weekend the elders receive a different menu.  They can get rice, beans, meat, vegetables, pasta, mashed potatoes, salads. 

Our participants got a present during Christmas.  Along with their meal, they received a gift which included basic need articles:  a towel, tooth paste and brush, shampoo, hair conditioner, soap, deodorant.  The elders were surprised and happy with the present and expressed their gratitute.  We were pleased to see their faces, this detail represents how much we care for them, specially for those living alone.

Proyecto La Nueva Esperanza is committed to our mission to serve this disadvantage group because of their low income and age with its limitations.  Each donation means a lot to us and specially the elders, this means that they are not forgotten and that we care (the organization and donors).
