Seniors Need the Right Nutrition

Seniors go through a variety of changes as they age, including loss of appetite, sensitivity, and the ability for their body to produce the nutrients they need.   

Your loved one:

  • Might find their body becomes slower at absorbing outside nutrients
  • Start to see a decrease in appetite
  • Might find their body becomes slower at producing natural nutrients
  • Notice changes in their sense of taste

Seniors need plenty of the right foods to help reduce their risk of a variety of illnesses, diseases, mobility issues, and may even find things take longer to heal.

The Right Senior Care Makes All the Difference

Here at Comfort Keepers, we take senior nutrition seriously and so do our skilled caregivers who we like to think of as nutrition superheroes. Each of our caregivers knows how to prepare tasty, nutritious meals that meet any personal, medical, or religious dietary needs.

Our caregivers have been trained to:

Help plan meals – our part of our in home senior care, our caregivers will work with your loved one to create meal plans that meet their nutritional requirements and taste good.

Help with shopping – not all seniors can handle driving to the grocery store or pushing heavy shopping carts around. Our caregivers can provide transportation and assist with the shopping or they can take care of everything.

Help with preparing meals – your loved one's caregivers can assist with preparing meals by doing the cutting, chopping, peeling, and so forth. Although it would be better if your loved one helped with tasks as they are good for arthritic hands and with mental acuity.

Help your loved one to eat – issues like certain illnesses, diseases, and injuries can make it hard for seniors to feed themselves. Our caregivers know how to assist without making your loved one feel embarrassed or as if they are giving up their dignity.

It Costs Too Much to Eat Healthy Meals

Living on a fixed income leaves many seniors with a choice between paying their bills or eating nutritious foods. Instead, they end up buying processed foods, frozen dinners, and other foods that have virtually no nutritional value whatsoever. Poor quality foods lead to the need for supplements, doctors' visits, and prescription medicines, all of which end up costing more than buying healthy foods would have cost in the first place.

There are many local, state, and federal programs available to help ensure your loved one eats healthy meals. Among these are programs like Meals on Wheels that can deliver fresh hot meals to your loved one most days of the week and pre-prepared meals that can easily be microwaved when delivery is not available.

The list of agencies includes:

There are things you can do to help, such as: 

  • Watching for sales and coupons
  • Keeping foods stored in the fridge or freezer to extend their lives
  • Buying foods that are in season
  • Planting a garden of fruits and vegetables
  • Make a shopping list and stick to it
  • Looking for deals at the supermarket and comparing them to those at the farmer's market
  • Comparing food labels, just because an item costs more doesn't make it better!
  • Choosing fresh food options first

Seniors require fewer calories than they did when in their prime, however, they do still need to eat a nutritious diet that includes:

  • Protein/Fish
  • Low Fat Dairy
  • Whole Grain
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables

Your loved one:

  • Might find their body becomes slower at producing natural nutrients
  • Start to see a decrease in appetite
  • Might find their body becomes slower at absorbing outside nutrients
  • Notice changes in their sense of taste

If you would like more nutrition information to help your loved one, contact their doctor as they will have plenty of information for you. Our in home senior care program includes a professional senior care provider who is skilled in providing your loved one with the senior nutrition they need.

Along with this, you can do your part by carefully reading the nutrition labels on the foods you buy. Just because the front of the package says the contents inside are healthy doesn't mean they are as healthy as the manufacturer claims.
