Food allergies and celiac disease are becoming more common, especially in the elderly population. Through online lessons, recipe videos and knowledge checks, caregivers will learn how to do the following:
Protect elders from a food allergy reaction or complications from celiac disease at mealtime.
Inform elders of food and beverage choices they can safely enjoy.
Identify allergen and gluten-containing foods.
Recognize food allergy sources on food labels.
Prevent cross contact of allergens during food preparation.
