Senior Care with Nutritional Assistance in Brentwood, TN
Our senior care experts help to plan healthy meals
Seniors often face challenges when they are advised to change their diets due to medications or as a result of an illness. It is important to maintain a proper diet for people of any age, but seniors are especially at risk of developing complications due to inadequate nutrition. Many find it difficult to change their eating habits, or simply have no guidance in obtaining a healthy diet plan. The senior care experts at Comfort Keepers can help elderly individuals of Brentwood, TN make changes to their diet which will improve their health and energy.
Our care aides will work with your loved one’s doctor or dietician in order to determine which kinds of food should be included, limited, or avoided entirely in their diet. Any vitamin deficiencies can be regulated by a change in eating habits. With this in mind, we will make an updated grocery list. Our caregivers can provide transportation and accompany the senior on a trip to the grocery store if that is something he or she enjoys, or they can pick up the groceries for those who cannot shop for themselves.
After the proper diet for your loved senior is determined, and the grocery shopping is taken care of, the next step is to successfully incorporate the new foods into senior’s regular eating habits. We encourage our senior care aides to have fun with this! They can look up new healthy recipes or go over old favorites with your family member and make suggestions for ingredient substitutions. They will provide or assist with meal preparation and keep track of which meals each senior enjoys the most while maintaining proper nutrition.
If you have a senior in the family who struggles with healthy eating choices, contact our office serving Brentwood, TN today or call (615) 942-0111 to learn how our senior care can help.
