Comfort Keepers Loving Senior Home Care Assistance Plans for Healthy Eating
Quality home care assistance makes a difference
Today, many of Rochester's seniors get to age at home, thanks in part to Comfort Keepers of Rochester, NY, and our quality home care assistance. The growing number of older adults living alone, though, does raise some concerns when it comes to meal times.
Eating alone is never much fun. It's one of the reasons why so many home-alone seniors fall short on their daily nutritional needs. Comfort Keepers can help to plan and maintain much better eating.
A change in appetite is quite normal as we age. This is because activity levels and metabolism slows. But needing fewer calories does not mean you need less nutrition or that snack foods will suffice.
Eating less food and more low-quality snacks can result in senior malnutrition.
Nutritional Home Care Assistance Plans
If you're a senior who's concerned about your food—or the nutritional needs of someone you care about—we can help. It's an important service that can make the world of difference.
There are many potential downsides to poor senior nutrition, including:
- Unwanted weight loss
- Jeopardized immune system
- More prone to infections, including common colds and the flu
- Muscle weakness and general fatigue
- Mood swings
Nourishment at meal times is so important. One of the problems is that even though family members may notice some of the above symptoms in their loved ones, they may not always join the dots.
Social Eating Is Healthy Eating
Comfort Keepers understands the challenges seniors in the community face at meal times. We also know that family members can't always be around to dine with their loved ones, but we can.
Our home care assistance covers all aspects of at-home senior care. This includes meal preparation, special diets, and cleaning up afterward if required. And yes, we can eat with our clients too.
Cooking and dining with seniors on a regular basis is part of our loving companionship support plans. It can also be a part of a broader, custom care program. We can even eat out together at social events.
Our loving caregivers don't take over from families—we simply provide caring support between visits. We not only devise a regular, healthy eating pattern, we maintain it. The results can be amazing.
