Grocery Shopping for Elderly
Making Life Easier with Grocery Shopping Service
Senior nutrition is an important part of keeping elderly individuals healthy while living on their own. The work that goes into preparing healthy and satisfying meals daily can become more than some seniors are able to take on, and their diet can suffer as a result. One piece of this puzzle is simply acquiring the right foods from the grocery store. Buying fresh, quality ingredients is something that can only be done so far in advance, as the food will spoil. Therefore, some seniors opt for lower-quality frozen items, or fail to shop at all and turn to unhealthy alternatives such as delivery or skipping meals. Comfort Keepers offers grocery shopping assistance to make sure seniors have the foods they need to get nutritious, enjoyable meals.
A Personal Grocery Shopping List
A one-size-fits-all approach will never work for grocery shopping, as everyone has their own favorite foods, likes and dislikes, nutritional needs, and dietary restrictions. We’ll work together to craft shopping lists that are appropriate and appealing. Remember, we are focused on helping each senior live a quality life in their own home with tasty, healthy food to enjoy.
Other Items Along the Way
While doing the grocery shopping, your caretaker can also pick up things that are needed for around the house. These can be personal hygiene items, such as soap and shampoo, or things used for cleaning the house like garbage bags and more. Prescriptions can also be arranged for pickup, as pharmacies are often located in or near grocery stores.
Grocery shopping for elderly clients is yet another way Comfort Keepers can make life a little easier and more enjoyable to live at home. Contact us today to learn more.
