Elder Care and Nutritional Assistance
Learn more about our loving elder care in Medina
When providing elder care for an aging loved one, you may consider the help they need with getting around the house or remembering to take their medications. Do you think about cooking, planning for meals and all that goes into the process of eating a healthy diet? The compassionate home care aides at Comfort Keepers in Medina, OH do! This is because we are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for the seniors we work with. Eating a balanced diet that provides the needed nutrients for the elderly is a vital aspect to keeping them safe.
The Benefits of Nutritional Assistance
As we age, the body doesn’t process nutrients the same. The body gets older and simply doesn’t work as well. When you take into account age-related illnesses and other challenges, it becomes easier to see how meal planning and preparation are important in the lives of seniors. Our senior caregivers are committed to encouraging healthy eating because not only is this good for the client, getting the nutrients they need is going to aid their overall health and help them to be independent, more active and happier.
When Comfort Keepers is on call for your elder care needs, you can trust that the senior we are supporting is going to have their nutritional needs met. The way we ensure this is by planning meals while following the direction of physicians, dietitians, and involved family. Additionally, since all of our care providers are licensed to drive and insured, seniors can get the help they need with shopping and purchasing foods. Caregivers can go to the store for their client if they are unable to leave the house.
However, most seniors enjoy the help and are encouraged to go shopping in order to get out of the house and to be involved with the cooking process. They can pick out foods they want to eat with a friendly home health care aide to remind them of food interactions that may cause a problem with the drugs they are on or what kinds of foods they should be eating, avoiding and including in their diet in order to get the most out of their meals. Beyond shopping and meal planning, elder care professionals can help with the cooking process and help to establish mealtime routines that encourage mindful eating practices and overall healthiness.
