Useful Tips to Help Seniors Eat Healthier at Home
When seniors live alone, it’s difficult to determine whether their eating right or they’re just preparing the easiest meal they can make. Getting the right nutrition is especially important for seniors, so this should be something to think about when you make care arrangements.
If you’re worried about your loved one’s eating habits, here are several things we at Lowenhill Home Care Services suggest you do.
- Prepare Food Ahead of Time
Pre-made food can be stored in the freezer for three to four days. Make sure to fix your loved ones a healthy meal that they can simply heat in the microwave.
- Buy More Fruits and Vegetables
A simple way to make sure that your loved ones eat healthier is by giving them easier access to nutritious food. You can do this by stocking up the pantry with fresh, frozen fruits and vegetables that they can use in their meals for the rest of the week.
- Make Cooking an Exciting Activity
If your loved one isn’t someone who likes to cook that much, then you can encourage them to do it more often by giving them recipes of food that they will enjoy.
- Ask for Professional Help
A skilled home health aide can support and assist your loved ones with almost everything they need, from personal care and companionship to meal preparation and medication management.
