Find out how an in home care provider from Comfort Keepers can help your senior loved one in Winchester, VA plan meals that are both delicious and nutritious
Dorothy said it best in The Wizard of Oz – 'There is no place like home'. Sadly, many seniors feel that they can no longer remain in the comfort and convenience of their own home because they have difficulty with daily living tasks. With the support offered by an in home care provider from Comfort Keepers, however, seniors can safely age in place despite physical, mental, or emotional challenges.
One aspect of daily life that seniors often require assistance with is meal preparation and cleanup. Chronic pain, mobility challenges, and other injuries and medical conditions can make cooking and cleaning difficult if not impossible. The constant bending, stooping, lifting, carrying, chopping, stirring, etc. is simply too much. The result is often an unhealthy diet based on ease and convenience instead of nutrition.
A senior needs quality food to keep their body properly fueled. This is not always easy since a senior's metabolism slows down at the same time the body stops efficiently absorbing essential nutrients. Making things worse, a senior's appetite is often challenged by medications, loss of taste buds, and alterations to their sense of smell.
An in home care providers from Comfort Keepers can offer dietary assistance to seniors who need help in maintaining proper nutrition. Caregivers can help seniors plan nutritious and tasty meals, shop, and prepare foods. Care providers can clean up afterward and are even available to share a meal to bring back the important social aspect of dining. For seniors who require specialized diets, an in home care provider will coordinate with a senior's dietician or nutritionist to ensure their dietary needs are being met.
Maintaining a proper diet helps seniors look and feel better while decreasing a wide-range of health risks.
