See How a Home Health Aide Can Help Seniors in Altoona, PA
A home health aide can ensure that your elder loved one never skips a meal
The eating habits of the elderly directly affect their health, and yet, it is still a challenge to ensure that seniors eat enough and eat the right foods. Seniors often have an idea of what they like, and they may not be concerned with what their doctor has to say. Additionally, many seniors don’t pay attention to what they are eating, and when there isn’t a home health aide around, they can’t get out to buy food so they don’t cook healthy meals.
Get Better Nutrition with a Home Health Aide
The goal of our homecare providers is to help seniors make the best choices for their overall wellbeing. They are there to do whatever is needed. Compassionate senior care services aides will take the time to include seniors in the meal planning, shopping and cooking to whatever extent they are capable of being involved in it. Our commitment is to encourage personal responsibility in nutrition and to ensure that your loved one has access to healthy choices to make the right decisions.
Because nutrition is such an important issue, we not only encourage seniors to eat healthily, but we also focus on education, so they know what foods to eat and how to cook them. Your loved one’s home health aide will be able to do whatever parts of the meal time routine that they need help with but will also include them in the process, when possible. This is all part of our Interactive Caregiving philosophy, which encourages seniors to be independent, leading to a better overall quality of life.
Our caregivers empower seniors with the knowledge to make the right choices about food and nutrition, such as:
- Choosing appropriate ingredients that benefit age-related conditions
- Incorporating a well-balanced portion of meats, vegetables and carbohydrates
- Eating at the proper times that will work best with sleep and prescribed medications
- Finding new recipes that introduce seniors to foods they aren’t fond of
Seniors who live independently without the assistance of a home health aide or family member can easily become malnourished. Whether they have new dietary restrictions due to an age-related illness or they have difficulty cooking and preparing meals, Comfort Keepers in Altoona, PA, can be there for an aging family member when you can’t be.
