To collaborate with nutritionists and housewives to design recipes for elderly with hypertension and diabetes
Diets for the elderly, particularly those with hypertension and diabetes, must be given extra attention. The elderly’s caregivers, however, often encounter difficulties in preparing a balanced diet with food varieties. They tend to cook repetitive dishes which would result in the bad appetite and worsened health conditions of the elderly.
The venture team will collaborate with nutritionists and housewives to design recipes of healthy meal and soup for elderly with hypertension or diabetes. Videos of cooking demonstrations will also be produced. The objectives are to provide a balanced diet for the elderly as well as to relieve the stress of caregivers in preparing the meals.
An online survey will be conducted to collect the views of elderly and the caregivers on their satisfaction level regarding the taste and preparation time for the dishes.
