Meal planning and preparation are an important aspect of making sure your senior parent is not malnourished or overweight. However, both meal planning and preparation take time and energy that many older adults simply do not have at their disposal. As your loved one gets older, they will inevitably get weaker and less able to do things on their own.

As they do start needing a bit more help, they may be reluctant to ask for it and simply start doing less of the activities of daily living. One of the first things your senior parent may start cutting corners on could be their nutrition. Help them avoid doing so with quality companion care from Visiting Angels.

Why Eating Healthy is Important for Seniors

There are many reasons older adults become malnourished or overweight. One of the most common is the one we covered above: general weakness or inability. On the other hand, you will be hard-pressed to find a senior that does not have at least one chronic condition. Over time, dealing with the demands of a chronic illness can take its toll.

At the same time, many seniors have trouble eating because of an illness or the treatment for it. For example, cancer patients undergoing chemo have trouble eating as they get nauseous from the treatment. Many medications taken by seniors also impact appetite and can result in seniors making less of an effort to eat throughout the day.

At Visiting Angels, we approach each senior as an individual. This means that we account for all of the particular experiences your loved one may be experiencing and compensate for them as part of our home care services.

If your loved one would like to accompany us to go grocery shopping, that's great! More activity.

We will also prepare meals for your parent. Your loved one may prefer having small meals available throughout the day. We can help make this happen by preparing food ahead of time and portioning it off and storing it in the refrigerator or freezer.
