Meal Preparation

Meal preparation and eating healthy and nutritional food is such an important part of staying well, especially for seniors. If you are a loved one are struggling with meal preparation or clean up, our home care services can help. Good food, on a regular and consistent schedule, is necessary for emotional and physical health.

For older individuals living alone, keeping track of what and when to eat can be a complicated task. Never mind having to prepare, cook, and clean up afterward. Merciful Homecare Services are ready to assist with all things related to eating well and caring for seniors. Meal preparation assistance for the elderly is not just about cooking but involves so much more. Our elderly care services providers are ready to:

Help Plan Meals
Planning a single meal can be an involved task. Planning meals for the week can seem impossible, especially as we get older or injured. Doing so, however, is key to staying on a regular and balanced diet that will provide seniors the strength needed to live independently. Our in-home caregivers can take food inventory and make shopping lists or menus. They will work with you or your loved one to create a shopping list that is both healthy and familiar. They can help keep track with recommendations from your nutritionist or doctor, and tailor meals to any medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

Help Clients Shop for Groceries
Caring for seniors isn’t just about keeping track of what you have and need, but also how you will get it. If you’re unable to go to the store, they’ll go and handle your shopping needs for you. Working with a home care agency like Merciful Homecare Services will give you piece of mind knowing that your elderly loved one’s refrigerator will be stocked with fresh food for healthy meals.

Prepare and Cook Meals for Seniors
For seniors who have health or mobility issues, preparing a meal can be very difficult. Our in-home caregivers can prepare the meals for them or simply provide supervision and assistance as needed. They can prepare your elderly loved one’s favorite and familiar foods, offering as much or as little assistance as is needed.

Provide Companionship for Seniors
As people age, they find that where they once sat around a table full of familiar faces at dinner time, now they’re alone. Merciful Homecare Services can provide companion care services during mealtime. You or your elderly loved one will have someone to talk to and share with, making mealtime a much more enjoyable part of the day. 

After Cooking Clean-Up for Seniors
No one likes to clean up after a meal. It’s especially challenging for anyone with health or mobility issues. Our in-home caregivers can clean up afterward and make sure you or your loved one feels full and satisfied without having to worry about the mess.

Our core mission is to ensure our clients’ healthy lifestyle and well-being. Call us today at 860-461-2867 and ask how Merciful Homecare Services can help with your meal prep needs.
