TRIBUNE By JOY STILLEY AP Newsfeatures Wrilor NEW YORK (AP) - The ma- rity of elderly Americans liv- [· alone--rich or poor--do not nsume an adequate diet. That the" opinion of Dr. Herbert A. Itzer, executive director of e Daughters of JacoVGeriat- c Center here, who has con- ucled studies on the nutrition the elderly and what can be ne to improve it. "The social aspect of eating very important," he says, low many people living alone ·e going to make a whole eal day after day? Instead ey snack and eat the wrong ods."' Poor nutrition often is not so ucli a matter of money, ough this can be a faclor, as failure to take the time or ake the effort to prepare alanced meal, adds Seltzer. He suggests those living l o n e make arrangement herever possible to share ipals and mealtime with olh ·s in the same- situation Find someone in the apart lent building or neighborhooc nd eat together; make it a itch treat .or allernate prepa ation of the meals." And he recommends tha' lose who must eat alone make ceremony out of it, cooking ull-course, balanced meal am ating it in the proper selling erliaps with candles on the ible and a little wine to go ifh the dinner 1C it's approve* y their doctor. The director, who holds an \1A from Harvard and a Doctor if Divinity degree from the icwish Theological Seminary of America, has headed the ge- ·iatric center for the pnsl 32 'ears. A nonprofit Federation if Jewish Philanthropies agency, it has more than 500 resi- lents ranging in age from 70 lo 03. Good eating habits are especially important to the elderly iccause they are conducive to letter health, Seltzer points oul. "If they stuff themselves vith snacks they become obese arid if they lose interest in food hey fade away into nothing." He considers absolutely es- senlial one hot nutritional men] day, seven days a week. He hinks more . loqiil programs such as "Mcals-on-Whecls," through which a balanced, hoi meal is delivered ready lo eat would go a long way toward solving the problem. "it's an outrage that, local institutions don't use their kitch to provide such meals," SelEzcr declares. "Withoul straining the dietary facilities of a hospital, many addiliona meals could be produced. The cost of raw food is Ilic snialles part in institutional preparatioi ami if an organization regnlarlj serves 300 meals it won't cos t h a t much more lo prepare an extra 100 to be sent out lo people who otherwise wouldn'' have a hot, nourishing meal." Not only do older people fai to eat properly because the; v'on't take the time or (rouble iul by Ihe time Ihey've reached heir 80s they have golten into Baling pallcrns Ihat are impossible lo break. "Regardless of what special- zed diet a person is on it's pos- ible to eat balanced meals vilhin (he restrictions, but our liclician knocks her brains oiit o prepare a nutritionally bal- inccd meal and some of them cave it and then go into the snack shop lo fill up," (he di- ·cctor laments. Seltzer advises the elderly, vho oflon have no idea what elements constitute an ade- quale diel, lo gel a booklet on nutrition from any health agen- y and adhere to it rigorously. For (hose who have d i f f i c u l t y dropping for food he claims "a elephone and a quarter lo tip he delivery Iwy" are necessi- ies Ihat should be taken into consideration by welfare au- horilics. Families can help, too, if hey're around, he adds. "Take he old folks out lo a restaurant on festive occasions; invite hem over as oflen as you can, or take an extra portion of your own meal lo them. And, if they ivc with you, Ihey should eat it Ihe same lime as ttie rest of the family. Bunch of Snow LONGMIRE, Wash. (AP) -ME.
