Individuals living in the community with Mental Illness often eat poorly and infrequently. These poor diets affect mental and physical conditions.
Albany Care provides chronically ill residents with educational activities by increasing their understanding of how improving their dietary quality and their physical activity will have a beneficial affect on their overall health. It will also help reduce overweight/obesity and improve their outlook on life. Food and nutrition education increases our residents’ knowledge and skills so that they will learn to shop economically, prepare food safely and eat nutritious meals once they are living on their own in the community.
