Professional Senior Care Focuses on Good Nutrition
The professionals at Integrity In-Home Care provide an array of services that ensure the comfort and safety of senior clients. In addition to keeping the home clean and getting your loved one to the doctor, among other things, we focus on healthy meal preparation. All too often, people getting up in age find it difficult to cook. Instead of eating healthy meals, they choose fast food or microwavable dinners, or they have something delivered.
Although your loved one might feel full from eating foods low in nutrition, the body does not get what it needs to sustain a healthy life. The other concern is that your beloved family member has different nutritional needs compared to someone younger. For instance, with weakened bones, the body requires more calcium. Also, potassium helps prevent muscle cramping, an increase in vitamin D prevents heart problems and fights fatigue, and the list goes on.
Because of the level of care that we offer our senior clients, they get everything that they need. Our team of experts has experience, as well as extensive training in what proper nutrition means for the elderly. As a result, they create meal plans accordingly and then prepare food that contains the right type and level of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Because our senior care includes the planning and preparation of healthy meals, you never have to worry about your loved one not getting proper care by our staff member.
If your parent enjoys grocery shopping, we can arrange for transportation. However, before heading out the door, we make sure that your loved one has a list in hand with healthy food choices that not only fight illness but also boost the body’s immune system to prevent sickness. As part of our senior care, we listen to what your parent has to say, meaning that if he or she has certain food preferences, we consider those when planning meals.
Because we can plan and prepare all of the meals for your loved one, you don’t have to worry when you are not there. Our entire staff follows strict guidelines for senior care, not just for meal preparation but in every aspect of the job.
