What is Meal Planning Service?
Meal planning services from a professional in-home caregiver can be a source of fun for the senior who enjoys discovering new recipes. For others who may have lost interest in preparing food, it can be a necessity.
Your loved one may have a dulled sense of taste as they age. In addition, certain medications may cause unpleasant side effects that impact their appetite. Guiding your loved one to nutritious foods that they can enjoy is part of in-home senior care. The CareFirst team also creates menus that incorporate all the major food groups with whole foods and tasty preparations.
Working With Your Loved One to Purchase Healthy Food
CareFirst’s caregivers help ensure that our senior clients eat the right foods to stay as healthy as possible, creating a balanced grocery list that fits within their budget. Grocery planning includes helping your family member clip coupons, visit local farmer’s markets, and dispose of outdated and expired food.
Driving your loved one to the grocery store and helping them grocery shop can give them both companionship and the help they need to purchase food. Shopping trips can become bonding experiences. For many elderly loved ones, help bagging items, loading groceries into the car, and carrying them into the house is helpful for those with mobility limitations.
Delicious Meals, Easily Prepared
Senior home assistance for meal preparation includes helping those with unsteady hands create easily prepared meals. Meal assistance includes:
Meal prep can also be a form of bonding, as CareFirst services include companionship. Spending time exploring new recipes or trying new foods can be a part of your loved one’s daily or weekly routine.
Did you know that nearly half of those 65 and older are malnourished or suffer from health issues due to an unbalanced diet? As seniors age, they also have difficulty with food absorption which can affect whether their medications are processed correctly and their ability to get vital nutrients from their meals.
Our clients tell us they are thankful for the difference CareFirst makes in their life and their loved one’s lives.
