Why Healthy Eating is Important for Seniors in Palm Beach Gardens and Surrounding Areas
As people age, they gradually lose their strength which is one of the reasons why many seniors are malnourished. Since they become weaker with age, older adults can no longer spend time in front of the stove preparing quality, healthy home-cooked meals for themselves.
As your parent or other loved one ages, they may begin to choose processed and unhealthy meals because they are easy to prepare and can be bought anywhere. All they need to do is take out a TV dinner from their freezer, put it in a microwave, and they have a hot meal in a matter of minutes.
These habits are especially harmful to seniors whose health is declining since these processed foods are full of salt, sodium, and many unnatural preservatives. Luckily, with senior home care assistance from Visiting Angels Palm Beach Gardens, your loved one can enjoy home-cooked meals prepared only with quality ingredients.
Meal Planning & Preparation as Part of a Comprehensive Care Plan
Our caregivers will go to the grocery store or farmers market to get ingredients and prepare meals and snacks that your parent can access quickly when hungry. As a part of our meal planning and preparation services, we will help your loved one follow their doctor's orders pertaining to their eating habits, provide feeding assistance when needed and remind your loved one to drink fluids to stay hydrated.
Thanks to senior home care assistance from Visiting Angels Palm Beach Gardens, your loved one can achieve a better quality of life.
