Light Meal Preparation for Seniors in Sacramento
Getting patients to eat properly, and sometimes just to eat at all, can be quite a challenge. We can accommodate any dietary needs including diabetic and low sodium diets, as well as ethnic and religious preferences. And since all of our staff are professionally trained, we insure a proper clean up to prevent the spread of bacteria, viruses, or food-borne illness.
Those receiving nursing care at home may have been recently hospitalized or treated for conditions that could be affected by diet. A doctor or dietitian may make an assessment of foods that should be avoided or offered. In-Home Care providers from Harmony will work with the attending physician or nurse and carefully choose recipes to accommodate those orders.
Clients with diminished eyesight or poor mobility may have trouble keeping foods fresh around the home. In addition to choosing new foods, our At Home caregivers take on the responsibility to check foods in the pantry and refrigerator for dates and safe storage. Providing this service to those receiving home health care is crucial for the health and safety of the senior client.
Most seniors respond well to active participation with a Caregiver when it comes to recipe selection and preparation of meals. That kind of support usually results in the elder eating a larger quantity, eating more often, and making healthy food choices. Sharing a meal with a senior also provides the companionship that is so vital to maintaining mental and emotional health.
We provide Home Care to the Western Slope of El Dorado County and the Greater Sacramento region: including Folsom, Roseville, Lincoln, Granite Bay, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Rancho Cordova, Natomas, and Elk Grove.
