Quality Home Care: Meal Preparation for Seniors in Midlothian, VA and Surrounding Areas

At Visiting Angels Richmond VA, our caregivers offer meal planning and preparation services as part of our quality home care services in order to facilitate daily life for older adults in Midlothian, Richmond, Chesterfield and the surrounding areas of VA

While we all know the benefits of eating a healthy diet throughout life, many seniors are unable to meet their nutritional needs and end up malnourished. The reasons for malnourishment in senior years are many and they include inability to prepare well-balanced meals due to medical or mobility issues, loss of appetite due to medications or health conditions, chewing problems, and more.

If you are worried about your loved one’s nutrition, quality home care services from Visiting Angels Richmond VA can make sure they eat a healthy diet and thus lead a higher quality lifestyle.

Before you reach out to us, it is important that you talk with your elderly parent and learn more about their eating habits – how, when, and what they eat. Once you know more about their nutrition, it is time to start planning for care. Together, we will develop a care plan for your loved one that includes meal preparation and make sure to follow both instructions provided by your family and your parent’s medical team or nutritionist.

How Meal Preparation Helps Seniors in Midlothian and Nearby Communities

At Visiting Angels Richmond VA, there are many ways we can help your loved one. With our quality home care solutions, your parent can maintain their independence and remain at home for years to come.

When it comes to meal preparation, it naturally also includes grocery shopping. Your loved one can make up a grocery list and our caregiver will go to the local store or market to pick up all the food and home items from the list. If your parent wishes, they can go to the store with our caregiver, which is a great opportunity for them to move their body as well.

Once the groceries are bought, our caregiver will place them in the fridge or pantry and start cooking. The care provider can prepare meals and snacks for a couple of days in advance so you can rest assured that your loved one will have something healthy to eat for every meal. Our caregiver can also keep your loved one company during mealtime. Naturally, they will clean up the kitchen after cooking and eating as well.
