Unfortunately, nowadays most seniors are malnourished, even those who are overweight. While some older adults eat too little, others eat wrong types of food. What is most alarming about this is that malnourishment can often cause or worsen chronic conditions many seniors are struggling with. This is why at Visiting Angels Richmond, we have included meal planning and preparation into our companion care services.

At Visiting Angels Richmond, it is our goal to help seniors live active, happy and fulfilled lives in their golden years. By now we have helped thousands of older adults live high-quality lives and maintain their independence. Meal preparation is one part of our companion care services and it has benefited seniors across Richmond, VA and surrounding areas in Henrico County, Hanover County and the Greater Richmond area.

Here is Why Healthy Eating is So Important for Seniors

Seniors lose their strength and become weaker with age. This is one of the reasons why many of them are malnourished. Spending a lot of time in the kitchen, going grocery shopping or visiting the farmers market is no longer an option for a lot of older adults. Therefore, instead of preparing nutritious home-cooked meals seniors opt for frozen TV dinners that they just put in the microwave and have a meal in a couple of minutes. However, these processed foods are full of salt, sodium and many unnatural preservatives, and therefore are harmful to older adults. The good news is that our caregivers are here to help. Our companion care professionals will get quality ingredients and prepare nutritious meals your parent will enjoy.
