As we age and become less active, nutrition becomes even more important. At the same time, meal preparation becomes a bigger burden. Cooking can even be dangerous for an elderly person who is forgetful or likely to fall asleep while food is in the oven or on the stove.
Our goal at Towne Home Care is to improve our clients’ quality of life in any way in which we can. Our home health aides are trained in every aspect of elder care. Along with other tasks, they can take responsibility for meal preparation, to ensure that your loved one eats regular, nutritious meals.
Customized Meals for Seniors
Meal deliveries are available in some areas, but they aren’t always the best solution. They don’t cater to individual tastes and there is no way to ensure that the food is being eaten. Towne’s home health aides cook customized meals for seniors with ingredients their clients enjoy and using the foods which are meant to be included in their diet. They will check whether the meals are being eaten and will adjust their cooking if necessary. A home health aide who notices whether a senior is eating can also spot a sudden downturn in appetite, which might point to a health issue which should be addressed.
Whether you have a 24 hour live-in or an hourly companion caring for your loved one, you can choose to include meal preparation in the services we provide for you. We are happy to create a customized plan for you and your loved one so you can be reassured that your family member is in safe hands.
