When you begin working with our at home healthcare agency, we will do an assessment to determine your loved one’s level of health, physical limitations and dietary needs. We work with each client’s physician, dietitian and family to determine what foods should be incorporated, limited or eliminated entirely from his or her diet. Our caregivers can provide grocery shopping assistance based on this list to ensure the house is stocked with the proper nutritious foods for your loved one’s diet. We will then work with each client to determine what kinds of foods they enjoy in order to move forward with creating new, healthier recipes based on doctor’s recommendations. We can also spruce up favorite family recipes with substituted ingredients to improve health.
Our at home healthcare providers will prepare meals as directed by family members, stay with your loved one to make sure he or she eats the proper serving size and provide cleanup afterward. Meal time can also provide an opportunity for social engagement as well. Caregivers who stay with their clients can engage them in conversation about their day and get feedback about the meal they created. When the meal is over, leftovers can be stored in individual serving sizes for easy reheat later, allowing your loved one to enjoy multiple healthy meals throughout the week.
