Meal Planning & Preparation Services – an Integral Part of Our California Senior Care Services
Meals can be challenging for seniors for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, a medical condition, such as diabetes or food allergies, results in limited dietary choices. Other times, side effects from medications such as chemotherapy can make food unappetizing or induce feelings of nausea. A physical condition can make it difficult for seniors to get out of the house for groceries or to cook their favorite meals. And sometimes, it’s just a matter of loneliness; cooking for one and eating alone may not be as enjoyable, resulting in the senior making limited, and perhaps unhealthy, meal choices.
At Hired Hands Homecare, we understand the importance of good nutrition for seniors, as well as the pleasure of enjoying companionship during mealtime. That’s why, as part of our home care services in Sonoma and the surrounding area, we’re pleased to offer professional meal planning and preparation services.
- Our fully trained and experienced at home caregivers can help make mealtimes healthier and more enjoyable by assisting with any of the following tasks as requested:
- Sitting down with the senior and his or her family to determine favorite foods, any dietary restrictions or allergies, etc.
- Creating a weekly meal plan
- Shopping for all necessary ingredients; or, providing transportation and accompanying the senior to the grocery store to select ingredients, if preferred
- Preparing delicious, fresh, healthy meals in accordance with any prescribed dietary restrictions
- Providing companionship during mealtime if the senior desires
- Cleaning up after each meal
Discover the difference our friendly, attentive at home caregivers can make in your senior loved one’s life, and how mealtime can once again become a time of celebration and joy.
