Aging Signs To Watch For #4

#4 . Are your parents losing weight?  Losing weight without trying could be a sign that something’s wrong. For ‘senior’ parents, weight loss could be related to many factors, including: 

Difficulty cooking. Your parents could be having difficulty finding the energy to cook, grasping the tools necessary to cook, or reading labels or directions on food products.

Loss of taste or smell. Some loss of taste and smell is natural with aging, especially after age 60. In other cases, illness or medication contributes to loss of taste or smell. Your parents might not be interested in eating if food doesn’t taste or smell as good as it used to.
