At Comfort Keepers, we are firm believers that nutrition plays a major role in good living. Staying healthy and feeling good can really help improve a senior’s life. Our care at home services in Cambridge, ON are based on finding ways to help your loved one take care of everything they need during the day, including shopping for groceries and other home essentials.
Although grocery and home supplies shopping may seem trivial, this chore presents a significant challenge for many people of advanced age. Seniors who are no longer able to drive or are simply too weak to go to the grocery store, may resort to ordering in or eating very unhealthy food. Poor diet negatively influences our overall health and is against doctor’s orders for anyone, particularly for older adults. That is why we make grocery and home shopping an option of our care at home plans for seniors.
Eating a proper diet can help seniors reap innumerable health benefits. These include better resistance to illnesses, higher energy levels, mental sharpness, stronger bones and muscles, and faster recovery from medical events.
There are many chronic and life-threatening conditions that can be regulated with proper diet, including:
Care at home can help your parents eat healthier and avoid becoming malnourished. Besides our grocery shopping services, Comfort Keepers also offers feeding services and meal preparation.
Comfort Keepers understands that having other home essentials readily available makes independent living easier for seniors. As part of our grocery and home goods shopping service, our PSWs can pick up cleaning supplies, trash bags, etc. Seniors can make a list or accompany their PSW to the store, ensuring that the preferred products are purchased and packed into the car.
