Meal Planning and Preparation for Seniors in McKinney, TX and Surrounding Areas

Our elder care services include meal planning and preparation in order to help seniors in McKinney, Allen, Plano and Frisco, TX remember to eat and stick to a healthy diet

You may not be aware of this, but many older adults, even those who are overweight, are often malnourished. This is caused by either eating too much or eating too little and overall eating the wrong things. The alarming thing about this information is the fact that malnourishment can worsen or even cause many chronic conditions faced by seniors. That is why proper nutrition is such a major part of quality elder care services.

Here at Visiting Angels, we have made it our mission to help older adults live quality lives in their golden years. This means offering a wide range of personal care and companion care services. Meal preparation is part of our home care services and it has benefited thousands of seniors across Collin County, including McKinney, Allen, Plano and Frisco. It has also given their family members peace of mind knowing they are being looked after and staying healthy. Quality elder care services can do this for your loved one, as well.

Here is Why Healthy Eating is So Important for Seniors

Seniors are simply not as strong as they used to be. Although it may sound very odd, but this is one of the major reasons many end up malnourished. As we get older, we begin losing our strength over time and in doing so are less and less able to prepare quality, healthy meals for ourselves. As your loved one ages, they may begin opting for meals that are highly processed and unhealthy for one reason only: they are easy and readily available everywhere. All you have to do is take out a TV dinner from the freezer, pop it into the microwave and you have a meal in a couple of minutes.

However, habits of this sort can be extremely harmful for seniors who are already of frail health. As you may already know, processed foods are full of salt, sodium, and many unnatural preservatives that are very hard on our bodies. The good news is that with Visiting Angels McKinney, your loved one's caregiver can help them get quality ingredients and prepare healthy meals they will enjoy.

What’s Included in Meal Planning and Preparation

Our caregivers can take care of all aspects of quality meal preparation and planning, including:

  • Going to the grocery store and farmers market to get ingredients

  • Providing feeding assistance
