Healthy Eating is Medicine Unto Itself
Being able to maintain a nutrient-rich diet while keeping up an appetite can be a true struggle for many seniors. That is why in home health care given by a trained caregiver can ensure that your senior loved one receives all the nutrients they need in order to remain healthy and active. We encourage our caregivers to socialize with their senior clients during mealtime and even help with meal preparation and enjoying the meal with them if they’d like. This ensures that their appetite is stimulated and that they don’t ever skip a nutritious meal. This approach to our home care is called Interactive Caregiving and is what we base all of our personal care plans on.
