Ensure - A Nutritional Liquid Supplement
As of 5/1/2013 the Cache County Senior Citizens Center will no longer provide Ensure.
In the past we have purchased a liquid supplemental meal (Ensure) available by donation to those seniors who have not been able to tolerate or digest regular meals. Because the liquid supplement does not meet the requirements of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, our state and federal funds cannot be used to purchase this product any more.
The U. S. Department of Health & Human Services Administration for Community Living, Administration on Aging has sent out the following policy change concerning the liquid supplement meal: The proposed medical and liquid meals (Ensure) are not consistent with the Older Americans Act and therefore Title III C-1 (congregate meals) and C-2 (Meals on Wheels) funding cannot be used.
The Ensure product is available at local grocery stores if you feel you need a liquid meal in your diet. If you need additional help please contact your doctor and visit with a dietician.
