Senior Care Services from Comfort Keepers in Charlotte, NC and Surrounding Areas Includes Help with Feeding
We provide nutrition assistance as part of our senior care services in Charlotte, NC
Due to health concerns, in order to manage medical conditions or prevent additional issues and complications, many seniors follow restricted diets. As part of their nutrition plan, those older adults either need to limit the foods they can eat or their quantities. While this all may sound rather easy, it is unfortunately not, particularly for older adults who can no longer cook every day.
At Comfort Keepers, we know how frustrating it can be for seniors to rely just on their nearest shop for groceries and eat the same food for a couple of days in a row. We also know that it can be too easy for seniors to get used to frozen TV dinners and other types of unhealthy, processed foods. That is why our senior care services include meal planning and preparation, as well as feeding and special diet.
Medications Making Nutrition Complicated
In addition to food quality, when speaking of senior nutrition, it is important to keep in mind that some medications come with food restrictions or at least sensitivities. Moreover, many seniors need to take their medications before, during or after a meal, which can be a problem for those older adults with memory problems.
Fortunately, with our senior care services, our clients do not have to worry about these medication/nutrition issues. Our caregivers take care of all the meals and make sure your seniors take their medications as prescribed as well.
Calories & Convenience
As mentioned, many seniors eat processed foods not because they do not want to eat healthily but because they cannot go grocery shopping as often as needed or cook nutritious meals, especially those that require a lot of standing and lifting of heavy pots and pans.
Our caregivers utilize senior care services to help older adults eat the food they need to stay healthy and happy without having to struggle with all the activities associated with cooking. We can purchase healthy groceries, prepare well-balanced meals, and keep seniors company as they eat, turning mealtime into an opportunity for social activity.
