Family Home Care Services for Meal Preparation in Cleveland, GA and Surrounding Areas
Many seniors struggle to maintain a healthy diet due to age-related issues that may prevent them from the physical demands of cooking, cleaning up, or even grocery shopping for ingredients. This causes seniors to adopt unhealthy eating habits that can worsen their condition and decrease their quality of life. At Visiting Angels of Cleveland, our family home care services include assisting seniors with meal preparation and planning to prevent these issues.

Why Healthy Eating Can Be Challenging for Seniors
- Loss of mobility or strength - A loss of strength and mobility can make it nearly impossible for seniors to lift heavy groceries and cooking pans or are unable to drive themselves back and forth to the supermarket.
- The "convenience" of frozen meals and fast food - Without easy access to a grocery store or the ability to cook, many seniors opt for the convenience of cheap fast food or frozen meals. However, this highly processed food is often full of salt and lacks the essential nutrients your loved ones need.
- Lack of appetite due to medication or depression - Some seniors attribute their unhealthy eating habits to their medication or even clinical depression. Many times, these can cause seniors to feel like they are not hungry or do not feel they have the energy to eat, which can lead them to skip some meals altogether.
The good news is that our family home care services are here to help. Our caregivers will get quality ingredients and assist with meal preparation that your loved ones will enjoy.
