Home Health Aides Provide Meal Preparation & Feeding Assistance in Los Angeles, CA
Healthy eating and personalized nutrition plans are made easier for seniors with help from a home health aide in Los Angeles, CA and the surrounding areas
With age, some seniors have difficulty performing everyday activities, including meal preparation and clean-up. With the assistance of a home health aide, your loved one will eat healthy, nutritious foods and have home cooked meals prepared for them every day. This is a much better option than the processed foods they now consume, which doesn't provide the nutrition they need. We encourage our clients to participate in cooking so they maintain a sense of independence.
Our meal preparation homecare services provided by your home health aide go further than just meal preparation:
- Fresh Food - We aim to prepare meals with only fresh foods and avoid processed foods, which can damage the health of our clients. If a senior has to follow a diet plan, we will prepare meals according to the doctor’s orders. Comfort Keepers will ensure that your parent is receiving nutrition that is designed for them.
- Help With Preparation - We encourage our clients to participate in cooking. One of our primary goals is to keep seniors active and healthy, and meal preparing is one of the activities which allows them to be both. Seniors who are included in cooking enjoy their meal so much more since they helped in preparing it and they’ve put their love into it.
- Companionship - A home health aide can also provide companionship over meal time. Comfort Keepers recommend that you or other family members come over for dinner and share a meal with your loved one. Seniors appreciate these gestures and dinner time can be the most enjoyable time for them. Nothing makes our clients happier then accompanying their loved ones. That is why we encourage you to visit your senior on a regular basis.
Along with meal preparation and proper nutrition, a home health aide can remind your loved one when it is time to take their medications that need to be consumed with food. We will ensure that your loved one eats nutritious meals and takes their medications on time, so you can have peace of mind.
