What are your favorite things to eat in the whole wide world? Chances are, something that your Mom cooks or bakes would make the list. After all, Mother knows best, right?! No matter your age, you’ll probably have a positive reaction when it comes to sitting down at the kitchen table. For seniors in Hillsborough and around the country, mealtimes can be more complicated, though. Thankfully, NuevaCare’s senior care providers can make the process easier and bring the fun back to eating a good meal.
Mealtime fun in Hillsborough: Senior care providers can help your loved oneSenior care providers can help your Hillsborough senior with mealtimes by providing grocery shopping assistance. You won’t have to worry any more about your senior falling in the parking lot at the supermarket while carrying heavy bags of food and necessary supplies. A NuevaCare caregiver can take care of this hassle. Senior care is also beneficial because a caregiver can provide meal preparation help. After a caregiver comes by, your loved one will be able to pull carefully prepared, nutritionally-balanced meals from the refrigerator and follow a few simple directions before sitting down to eat them. Nutrition can be hard enough for young people…why not make it simple and fun for your aging parent to get a balanced diet?
A Hillsborough senior care provider could also help your loved one create a beautiful recipe box for future generations. It’s a fun craft project that will help connect future generations to the past and to cultural traditions that are unique to your own family history. It’s likely that your senior has a “famous” dish of some kind that others should know about!
Good food unites people around a common table. That’s because sharing meals and recipes creates an atmosphere that encourages fellowship and community. Why not help your Hillsborough senior fight discouragement and loneliness by joining him or her for a meal several times a month? Senior care providers can make it easier for you all to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner together.
