Care of the Elderly
You’ve had a lot of experience buying and preparing food. Studies show that older adults do a better job of handling food safely than other age groups. So, why do you need to be concerned about food safety? We all need to be more careful with foods because where and how we produce our foods has changed. In addition, your ability to resist foodborne illness has probably also changed as you have gotten older.
