Knowing the Essential Vitamins for the Elderly


Vitamins are organic compounds that people need in small quantities. Vitamins must come from external sources because our bodies either produce a little or do not produce them at all. Senior care providers in Orange County, California must promote the consumption of vitamin-rich food among the elderly.

There is a myriad of vitamins people take daily, the most popular of which are multivitamins. Seniors need these nutrients for many body functions, and they can get these from many natural food sources or dietary supplements.

Here are some of the common vitamins seniors receiving skilled nursing may require:

  • Vitamin B-complex
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin D

What are the benefits of vitamins to senior health? To start, vitamins help with the body’s natural healing process and support and boost the immune system. Vitamins also help the body fight the effects of stress and free radicals. It is also worth mentioning that vitamins keep the bones, muscles, and skin healthy, thus, promoting healthy aging and the prevention of the signs of aging.

Hiring a certified caregiver can help you incorporate these vitamins into the senior’s diet (with the doctor’s orders).
