Help from a personal comfort caregiver makes mealtime simple and satisfying for seniors
We at Comfort Keepers are the leader in providing caregiving services in La Mirada, CA, and the local surrounding areas. Our custom-tailored comfort care plans offer quality, in-home care to seniors and older adults. Many of our customized care programs include meal preparation services.
We know that most seniors can use help around the kitchen or house. A personal care assistant from Comfort Keepers can prepare healthy meals, grocery shop, help dice and chop healthy, fresh ingredients, set the table for the meal, and even help clean up after meals.
Our comfort keepers provide a monthly proposed food menu developers according to your senior loved one’s personal preferences, tastes, medical requirements, and dietary needs. Our devoted caregivers make sure that the menu consists mostly of fresh, organic ingredients, such as lean meats, oily fish, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and dairy.
In addition to meal planning, our professional caregivers can also encourage your senior loved one to avoid unhealthy, high-fat and processed foods and reduce their salt intake from their meals. By making small, simple adjustments in their dietary habits, your loved one can improve their blood pressure and health and lead a healthier, happier lifestyle.
Once your senior loved one approves the proposed menu, they can go to the local market in La Mirada, accompanied by their caregiver, to purchase fresh, healthy groceries. Going to the grocery store can be an excellent opportunity for your senior loved one to enjoy some physical activity and to socialize with people. If the individual is not able to accompany their caregiver to the grocery store, the dedicated comfort care assistant can complete the grocery shopping alone and deliver the food back to your senior loved one’s home.
Our care providers aim to include your senior in meal preparation and cooking whenever possible. Together, they can prepare ingredients and enjoy friendly conversation during meal preparation. This participation and engagement can have a very positive effect on your loved one, as this helps them stay physically engaged while feeling useful at the same time. This can boost self-esteem and communication levels.
Our caregivers can also help set the table, serve food, and clean up and wash dishes after the meal is prepared. Of course, if your senior loved on prefers not to serve food or clean, the personal care assistant can prepare and serve food for them.
Our comfort care providers can also help your loved one with feeding if their medical conditions make them unable to feed themselves independently. If you would like to know more you can read about our nutritional guidance offered by Comfort Keepers of La Mirada.
