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.

When we needed a home-care nurse for my mother, a Towne nurse arrived at the house within hours. The prompt, wonderful service and level of personal care surpasses anything I could have expected, and while I hope to never need nursing care again, I’m so glad to know Towne Nursing is there when I need you.

Your aide, Emmanuel, was my husband’s salvation. He can be cantankerous, and Emmanuel was able to diffuse his tension and get him to laugh. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Emmanuel, who made things so much better for my husband. He is an asset to your company.

My brother and I rate your company with the highest of praise. You provided kind, compassionate, excellent care for our parents at the end of their days. Joel [Director of Operations] – you, your wife, and your staff are personable and professional. You never failed to deliver excellence and when it came to a financial hurdle, you put our minds at rest right away. Your nurse Reggie took care of my father with loving caring, and we will always be grateful. Reggie and the rest of your staff deserve every penny of their salaries, and then some!

I cannot recommend my mother’s aide, Rita, highly enough. She was kind, attentive and nurturing, and cared for my mother with the devotion of a daughter.

Towne Nursing put our minds at ease when we were reluctant to hire a live-in aide. Yaa, your staffer who arrived at our house, was amazing at handling my mother. She took care of all her needs, day or night, from cooking meals to healing bed sores. Her laughter was contagious and her level of care for Mom unsurpassed. She became a member of the family and we will miss her.

Thank you to Towne Nursing. We feel blessed to have had your aide, Akua, provide loving care to our parents – my mother with Alzheimer’s and my father’s acute health care needs (including taking full charge of Mom while Dad had a medical emergency that took him back to the hospital). And when he returned home, Akau was the only one guaranteed to get him to eat a full meal. She helped him regain strength, and cared for him round the clock after his subsequent surgery. We remain eternally grateful for her role in nursing my father back to health. We recommend Akua – there’s none better.

Your home health care aide, Naomi, is an absolute blessing! She took care of all of Mom’s physical, emotional and social needs, and went above and beyond her expected responsibilities to cooking nutritious meals and scrubbing the bathroom. Naomi became family; I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Akua has taken careful care of my mother for the past seven months, a particular challenge due to my mother’s high fall risk. Akua has been an honest and competent companion, keeping my mother freshly dressed in addition to cleaning her apartment. She also checks in with me daily, which is exactly what I need as a daughter.
