Here’s How Our Quality Home Health Care Services Help Seniors in Bethesda and Surrounding Areas Eat Well

It all starts with grocery shopping. Our at home caregivers can purchase healthy groceries for your loved one at the local market. They can do this alone or with your loved one, whatever works best for your parent. We encourage older adults to accompany caregivers on trips to the store because it provides them with an opportunity to move their body and socialize with people from the community. Of course, this is not always an option, but if your loved one is willing and able, we can turn grocery shopping into an enjoyable activity that comes with plenty of benefits.

With all the groceries in the pantry or fridge, our caregivers can proceed to meal preparation and cooking. If your loved one likes cooking, they are more than welcome to join in on the fun. Even if they do not perform any meal prepping tasks, they can still chat with their caregiver. Our at home caregivers can keep your parent company during mealtime as well. These are all excellent opportunities for bonding. It is important to note that our care providers will wash the dishes and clean the kitchen after mealtime as well.

With meal preparation and other quality home health care services from Visiting Angels of Bethesda, your loved one can have an easier time with remembering to eat and following and healthy diet full of the nutrients they need to manage age-related difficulties, chronic conditions and so much more.
