At Comfort Keepers serving Sweetwater, TX, you can find a caregiver today who is ready to provide your loved one with our brand of nationally recognized care.
Why is nutrition assistance important for seniors?
One of the most common challenges elders face living one their own is with nutrition. Because most seniors have limited mobility, tasks such as preparing a healthy meal can become challenging to do. Combine this with the naturally lower appetite that comes with getting older, and many seniors end up having a diet that doesn’t provide them with the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
A cornerstone of health for people of all ages is a moderate diet that contains all the necessary nutrients and vitamins a person needs to stay active and in good physical shape. This is especially true for seniors because an unhealthy diet that lacks essential vitamins can worsen the symptoms of many age-related illnesses. Additionally, poor eating choices can cause unhealthy weight gain, which puts an even larger strain on the bodies of elders.
How can we help with senior nutrition?
Caregivers are trained in many ways to help seniors live more comfortably and safely. One of the ways they can do this is with nutrition services. Part of this in home care service includes preparing delicious and nutritious meals and snacks for the senior in their care, as well as helping them choose and customize a healthy meal plan that follows nutritionist guidelines. Additionally, a caregiver can also assist with feeding the elder as well as providing timely meal reminders. A caregiver can also do grocery shopping for fresh ingredients and snacks when necessary. Finally, a caregiver can be there with them at their dinner table to enjoy a meal with them, which for many seniors is what they need to eat regularly.
