With in-home companion care from Visiting Angels, your senior loved one in Annapolis, MD can stick to healthy eating habits and improve their overall well-being

Have you noticed that your loved one has started eating more and more junk food or highly processed food? Maybe they are having trouble feeding themselves or their medication is making them feel less hungry. No matter where your loved one is on this spectrum, the fact is that your loved one is ready for professional in-home care from Visiting Angels Annapolis. Our meal planning and preparation services can help your loved one pick up healthy eating habits and start on the right path to a high quality of life.  

There are a number of reasons that older adults eat fewer nutritious meals, including reduced appetite, medication side effects, chronic conditions and mobility issues. As we are what we eat, so not eating a proper diet could have a detrimental effect on your senior loved one’s quality of life.

How Companion Care from Visiting Angels Helps Annapolis Area Seniors Eat Healthy

At Visiting Angels Annapolis, our senior care services have helped change the lives of so many older adults in Millersville, Annapolis, Glen Burnie, Arnold, Pasadena and surrounding Maryland communities. We can help your senior loved one, as well. Our highly professional and compassionate caregivers are trained to help ensure seniors keep a healthy diet. This training includes a wide range of activities that we provide local seniors with.

We can shop for groceries at the local stores and markets, plan weekly meals and prepare healthy meals that your loved one will enjoy eating every day. If your loved one enjoys cooking but you want to make sure they are staying safe as they do so, we can help keep them company in the kitchen and assist them where needed. We also offer feeding assistance if your loved one has a chronic illness such as Parkinson’s that makes feeding themselves difficult.

What sets Visiting Angels apart from all the rest is the fact that we approach each senior as an individual. This personalized approach to companion care and senior care in general has helped us assist thousands upon thousands of seniors across the country. We have helped so many seniors eat healthy diets because we understand that what works for a particular client may not work for everyone else. For example, your loved one may not like foods that are traditionally thought of as healthy. Our job is to help them find those they like and help put them on the table on a regular basis.
