Our Home Care Specialists Can Help Prepare Meals in Bangor, ME and the Surrounding Area
Visiting Angels Mid Maine's Home Care Specialists Prepare Healthy Meals for Seniors in Bangor, Brewer, Lewiston, and Nearby Cities
Our home care specialists understand the importance of eating well, even if we do not always follow nutritional guidelines. But as we age, it becomes increasingly vital to be mindful of maintaining a good diet and having continual access to fresh produce and healthy meals.
There are multiple reasons seniors should be conscious of what they put into their bodies:
- Medications may require that certain foods be taken out of their diet entirely
- Health conditions can decrease when assisted by diets that are adjusted for individual medical needs
- A healthy diet can relieve stress on major physical systems like circulation, digestion, and nervous system
- Changes in appetite or tastes can indicate new health concerns or side effects that their doctor should track
We Work with Medical Providers to Create a Meal Plan for Your Loved One's Dietary Needs
At Visiting Angels Mid Maine, our home care specialists will work with clients and their medical providers to understand your loved one's unique dietary needs. And beyond that, we will also work with seniors and their families to understand their preferences and habits regarding food, meal preparation, and food storage. Our goal is to design a meal planning and preparation strategy supporting both their health and their daily needs.
Seniors who live on their own or have mobility issues may have additional challenges in accessing fresh produce. It is important to ensure that they have access to fresh foods and incorporate fruits and vegetables into their daily diet. Our caregivers will help seniors keep fresh produce stocked in their fridges by either assisting them with transportation and mobility services or going grocery shopping on their behalf.

- Planning healthy and nutritious meals based on your loved one's health needs
- Going grocery shopping for ingredients

- Cleaning up the kitchen after cooking
