It is always important to maintain a well-balanced diet, but with age, nutrition becomes even more imperative. Nutrition plays a role in not only physical health but mental and emotional wellbeing as well. When seniors stay on top of their diet and receive the proper nutrition their bodies need, they are generally happy and healthier because of it. That is why our home care specialists at Comfort Keepers make nutrition a priority and always keep their client's specific needs.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
It can be difficult for seniors to stay on top of their nutritional needs for many reasons. Some older adults find that their appetite is not what it used to be, while some struggle with the physical tasks that come with preparing and cooking a healthy meal. Our home care specialists are available to help at any step along the way and provide the resources your loved one needs to stay on top of their health.
Some of the ways that our caregivers can help include:
- Assistance with grocery shopping
- Meal preparation
- Cleaning up the kitchen once meals are prepared
Interactive Caregiving is our unique approach to care that focuses on both the physical and emotional needs of seniors. We believe that the social aspect of mealtime is equally as important as the types of foods that are prepared. Depending on the particular needs and desires of each client, caregivers can prepare meals with seniors and allow them to take part in the process if they chose to do so. Caregivers and clients also enjoy sitting down and having meals together while participating in meaningful conversation.
There are many important benefits of proper nutrition, including:
- Improved energy
- Strengthened immunity
- Sharpened mental focus
- Stronger physical body, including bones and muscles
- Improved weight control, digestion and regularity
- and many more.
