A Caregiver Can Improve Your Loved One’s Nutrition And Health
Find out more about our dietary assistance for seniors in Olympia, WA
Eating habits have a tremendous impact on the overall health of senior citizens, alleviating the symptoms of chronic conditions and preventing many illnesses. Unfortunately, some seniors don't pay attention to their daily diet or aren’t able to get out to buy healthy ingredients without the assistance of a caregiver.
Develop a Dietary Plan
Our home care program is specifically designed to help seniors in Olympia, WA, make the best decisions regarding their overall well-being. Every Comfort Keeper is trained to provide them with whatever they need, whenever they need it. They will take time to plan out the meals and do all the necessary shopping and cooking. Furthermore, they will strive to include seniors in the meal preparation and all the surrounding activities as much as possible. The main idea is to encourage personal responsibility when it comes to nutrition and give seniors access to healthier dieting choices.
Given the importance of proper nutrition, your loved one’s caregiver will not only encourage your parent to eat healthily but also strive to educate them on the best food choices for their age and how to cook them. Caregivers can handle all the parts of meal preparation but will also try to include your senior in the process whenever possible. This is a part of our philosophy of Interactive Caregiving, which encourages independence and improves the overall quality of life.
How a Caregiver Can Help
Our Comfort Keepers provide your loved one with important knowledge of nutrition and food, including how to:
- Choose the right ingredients with beneficial effects
- Design a well-balanced ratio of meats, carbohydrates, and vegetables
- Create an appropriate eating schedule that works with prescribed medications and sleep
- Discover new recipes to try new foods
There is a looming danger of malnutrition for seniors who live alone. A dedicated caregiver can make all the difference with implementing dietary restrictions, creating appropriate schedules, shopping and preparing meals, and educating your beloved senior on how to make the best dietary decisions for their particular situation.
