Learn more about our loving in home care in Rapid City, SD
Diet and nutrition are important aspects of good health, regardless of age. Seniors, however, often struggle to make specific changes to their long-time eating habits when instructed by physicians or dietitians to do so for health- or medication-related reasons. Comfort Keepers Rapid City, SD in home care experts understand these challenges and can help seniors overcome obstacles to proper diet and nutrition with our customized care plans.
When you begin working with Comfort Keepers, one of our expert in home care agents will work with your loved one’s medical team to determine what foods should be included, limited and eliminated from his or her diet. This list will become the basis for all purchased food items going forward. If the client does not wish to grocery shop, his or her caregiver can do so on the client’s behalf. If your senior loved one does wish to continue participating in the grocery shopping, a home care provider can accompany him or her to the store to help navigate the aisles and find the right healthy items he or she may need and act as a watchdog to make sure the wrong items do not end up the grocery cart.
Once the refrigerator and cupboards are stocked, a caregiver can help your loved one find suitable recipes that will incorporate healthy items whenever possible. He or she can also help your loved one find ways to substitute healthy ingredients into favorite old recipes. Seniors who do not enjoy cooking or struggle to do so can benefit from our meal preparatory services. A client’s caregiver can help prepare meals, portion them into individual serving sizes and store them for reheating later. This ensures that your loved one always has healthy food options on hand and in the correct portion size.
If you or your loved one is struggling to maintain a new and confusing diet, contact us at (605) 277-1870 to find out how our in home care services can help.
