Visiting Angels' Geriatric Care Includes Meal Preparation for Seniors in Frankenmuth, MI and Surrounding Areas
Eating a healthier diet can make a major difference in the life of an older adult. Unfortunately, many seniors end up malnourished, regardless of the fact whether or not they are overweight or underweight, simply because they are too weak to prepare meals on their own.
If you think your loved one may be one of these older adults, keep reading to find out how meal planning and preparation from Visiting Angels Frankenmuth could help improve their lives and ensure their continuing independence.
At Visiting Angels, We Offer Quality Geriatric Care Services Such As Meal Planning and Preparation to Seniors in Frankenmuth, Bay City, Saginaw, MI, and the Surrounding Areas
The first step is voicing your concerns to your senior loved one. Speak to them about their daily routine, about how they eat and what they eat. Maybe they can show you what an average lunch or breakfast looks like for them. If you come to an understanding that professional geriatric care is the right option for you right now, that's great!
Going forward, know that even if your loved one is not necessarily malnourished or overweight right now if they are struggling, getting them the help they need right now could really help them avoid a lot of hardship in the long run. Many seniors actually end up losing their independence because they waited too long to get the help they need.
How Our Meal Preparation Services Can Help Your Loved One
If you have come to an agreement about geriatric care with your loved one, there is a lot we can do to help make sure they are getting nutritional meals and snacks on a daily basis. One of the first things a caregiver will do is sit down with your loved one and get to know more about the things they like to eat. Next, they will make up a grocery list, and our caregiver will go grocery shopping for your senior parent. If they like, and in the spirit of staying active, your senior parent can accompany their caregiver to the grocery store.
Once they have gotten the groceries, our caregiver will put them away in such a way as to make them readily accessible to your senior loved one. They can also prepare meals and snacks ahead of time. This will help make sure your loved one always has food available that is good for them. Portioning could also be a great thing to do for your loved one if they are having trouble with their weight.
