As we get older, proper nutrition and a healthy diet become more and more critical to our overall well-being. However, many people experience an increased sense of urgency to make dietary changes because of accompanying health issues, medications and other diagnoses. Seniors who have difficulty adapting to new dietary and nutritional rules and guidelines can receive in home care services from Golden Heart Home Care in Mason and Dayton, Ohio. Call us at (937) 528-1962 or contact our offices.
We know how hard it is for the elderly to make major changes at this point in their lives. Working with your loved one’s doctor, dietitian and other specialists will help us determine which foods and ingredients should be incorporated, avoided, or completely removed from each client’s diet. The client’s future grocery lists will be built on the guidelines provided to us.
Many elderly shoppers struggle to find heart-healthy labels and foods that are compatible with their dietary restrictions and would benefit greatly from the assistance of a caregiver when they go grocery shopping. For those times when you or your loved one can’t accompany your loved one to the grocery store, our care aides in Mason and Dayton, Ohio, can shop on their behalf. Make sure your loved one’s grocery list is followed to the letter and that any items to avoid are not accidentally added to the cart.
Your loved one’s care aide can help him or her find diet-compliant recipes that he or she enjoys once the kitchen is stocked with the right foods. We can also help you incorporate healthier substitute ingredients into recipes that you’ve always loved. Meal preparation assistance is also part of our in-home care services. If your loved one is hesitant to try new recipes on their own, a caregiver can assist with meal preparation and ensure that the appropriate serving sizes are provided. Meals can be stored in individual containers and reheated later for seniors who do not have daily care assistance, ensuring diets are adhered to even when caregivers are not at home.
