You are what you eat. We have all heard that one before. But did you know that this somewhat cheesy expression is of utmost importance for seniors and older adults? With meal planning and preparation from Visiting Angels Westminster, you can rest easy knowing your senior parent is consuming healthy meals and following nutritional recommendations on a daily basis thanks to professional elderly care at home.

Have you been wondering if your senior parent is malnourished? This dangerous condition has significantly reduced quality of life for so many older adults across the country. It comes about for a wide range of factors that seniors are at a high risk for. One of the most important factors is chronic health conditions. Dealing with a chronic health condition can make it difficult for seniors to maintain a healthy diet. At the same time, seniors experience hunger differently. Many older adults often take medications that suppress hunger. At the same time, chronic health conditions can make them weak and unable to prepare healthy meals for themselves on a consistent basis. This in turn can end up making their chronic conditions worse and even causing new ones like diabetes or high blood pressure. That’s why quality elderly care at home should take a senior’s eating habits into account and make they’re remembering to eat and getting the nutrition they need.
