Homecare Assistance: Meal Preparation in Fountain Hills, North East Scottsdale, North East Phoenix, and Mesa Areas
Professional homecare assistance promotes healthy eating and maintaining special dietary restrictions for seniors
Eating a diet that consists of all the necessary nutrients is one of the keys to leading a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, while most people are aware of how nutrition is important for overall well-being, a lot of folks continue eating overly processed or junk foods. With the widespread availability of ‘bad foods,’ it doesn’t come as a surprise that many Americans turn to frozen or ready dinners instead of preparing their own nutritious meals.
Comfort Keepers homecare assistance is aware that many seniors do not have that much of a choice when it comes to food. Older adults who have health or mobility issues or can no longer drive their cars for whatever reason may find it impossible to carry healthy groceries from the local market to their homes.
Cooking may also become challenging and time consuming for older adults. To help our senior clients eat diets that are good for them, our homecare assistance plans include assistance with meal preparation and all the surrounding activities, such as:
- Planning meals and compiling a grocery list with your loved one
- Going to the grocery store
- Preparing and cooking meals
- Performing clean-up afterward
Our caregivers can purchase groceries on their own and bring them to your loved one's home or they can accompany your loved one to the local store or market. If possible, we believe the latter option is superior because it allows seniors to do a bit of walking, socialize, and stay connected with their community. Our caregivers will, of course, carry the groceries to the car and inside the house.
Meal preparation is the next step, which should also ideally be performed together. Namely, your loved one doesn't have to cook, but by participating in meal preparation, they can learn about foods that are good for them, discover new recipes, and also bond with their care provider. Our caregivers can keep your loved one company while eating, which is another great opportunity for socializing and bonding. Afterward, our experts will wash the dishes and clean the kitchen too.
