Learn more aboutComfort Keepers of Racine, WI's loving elder care available to residents of Kenosha, WI
Excellent nutrition and diet are important aspects of maintaining good health for people of all ages. However, many seniors particularly struggle with this aspect of health, in part because of habit and in part because of sudden changes to dietary requirements due to medication or illness. At Comfort Keepers of Racine, WI, we understand how difficult this transition can be and work to provide elder care services that will address these issues and provide a support system to keep diets on track.
When you begin working with Comfort Keepers in Kenosha, WI, one of our elder care specialists will work with your loved one’s physician, dietician, family and others to determine their specific dietary and exercise requirements and will compile a list of foods that should incorporated into the diet, limited or reduced all together. This will become the backbone of your loved one’s grocery list going forward. Your care provider will ensure your loved one sticks to this list whenever he or she visits the grocery store. Caregivers can provide assistance with grocery shopping and guidance to make sure your loved one reads labels carefully and knows where to look for healthy options. If your loved one does not have the ability to grocery shop or does not wish to do so, your caregiver can do this on their behalf.
Elder care professionals are also able to help your loved one cultivate ideas for recipes and meals that will comply with new dietary restrictions. Your loved one’s caregiver will keep track of what recipes work and what do not in order to make sure the client enjoys the food they must eat. We also have a variety of substitution ideas to help improve the healthiness of long-time favorite recipes. Seniors who do not wish to do this experimentation themselves may benefit from our meal preparation services. A caregiver can not only prepare meals in a healthy way, but can make sure your loved one receives the proper proportions. Leftovers can then be stored in individual serving sizes for easy reheating and access to healthy food options 24 hours a day.
