Some seniors face challenges when it comes to meal time. Home care aides can assist them by purchasing appropriate products, preparing tasty meals, and providing company while the seniors are eating. When shopping for seniors who may have problems with managing hard foods, aides can select items like juices, creamed and mashed vegetables, puddings, soups, and ground meat. They can make certain that the seniors have a selection of fresh fruits as well as canned and pureed varieties. The aides can do the shopping independently if the seniors are not able or do not choose to accompany them. At meal times, aides can prepare simple meals for the seniors and offer them company while they eat.
It’s hard enough to shop and cook for your immediate family. Add in the special dietary needs of your aging loved one and food preparation quickly becomes a full-time job. Our caregivers will take over all the daily tasks that can be so wearing, including meal planning and food shopping.
