Proper diet is one of the most important aspects of good health at every age. However, seniors often struggle the most to make long-lasting changes due to medications, health conditions and other factors. Often, your senior family member is fighting a lifetime of habits, beliefs and traditions that inform their food choices. At Alliance, we understand how challenging it can be for seniors to adapt to new dietary restrictions. That is why we offer senior care assistance to help provide dietary and nutritional guidance for seniors in Dowagiac, MI and surrounding areas.
Our expert caregivers will work with your loved one’s physicians, dieticians, family members and other specialists to create a list of health needs and dietary restrictions that must be followed. This will form the basis of our grocery shopping list for your loved one moving forward and will include any and all items that should be further incorporated, limited or restricted entirely. For seniors who are still able to grocery shop, a caregiver can accompany him or her to help navigate the grocery aisles, locate healthy options and read nutrition labels. Our clients can rely on their caregivers to make sure that the cart stays free of foods that are unhealthy and off limits. Seniors who cannot or do not wish to grocery shop can benefit from having their senior care aide take over that chore entirely.
Once the house is fully stocked with the proper foods necessary for dietary health, your care worker alongside your loved one, will explore recipes that incorporate these healthier alternatives. We will also work to find ways to improve upon favorite old recipes as well. Senior care providers at Alliance in Dowagiac, MI can prepare meals for clients who cannot or do not wish to cook in order to ensure that meals are prepared properly with the right portion sizes and with regularity. Food can also be stored in individual portion sizes for easy reheat later when a care worker may not be available.
