As one of the nation’s leading living assistance services for seniors, we fully understand the importance of proper nutrition. At Comfort Keepers of Halifax, Nova Scotia, we are always looking for new and creative ways to improve the quality of our clients’ lives. Our goal is for our caregivers to provide their clients with a comprehensive range of senior services, including taking care of the grocery shopping.
To most of us, taking care of things like grocery shopping is part of our everyday life that we take for granted. While shopping for nutritious foods and household supplies might seem trivial to you, they are an essential part of seniors being able to continue living independently in their own homes.
Many seniors have surrendered their driver’s license, no longer feel comfortable driving, or are simply not healthy enough to safely get behind the wheel to go to the grocery store. Often this results in eating a poor-quality diet of fast food, boxed and frozen meals, none of which have much in the way of nutrition. A diet lacking in nutrition, no matter how tasty the foods might be, can lead to poor physical and mental health.
All of this is why Comfort Keepers includes grocery shopping as an option with our living assistance services. Eating a healthy, nutritious, well-balanced diet can lead to an improved immune system that can help fend off illness and disease. A proper diet can help improve mental health, bone density and strength, increased energy, and more. It can also help control and reduce the risk of:
Our grocery shopping services can reduce the risk of your loved one becoming malnourished. Along with taking care of the shopping, our caregivers can help plan and prepare delicious meals that meet any medical or religious dietary needs. Of course, your loved one is more than welcome to accompany their caregivers to the store to ensure they get everything on the list and the right brands.
If you have a loved one who is struggling to care for themselves, including not eating properly due to an inability to go grocery shopping, Contact Comfort Keepers of Halifax, Nova Scotia. We can schedule a free meeting with one of our senior advisors in your or your loved one’s home to discuss their needs and develop a care plan that addresses them while meeting your budgetary concerns.
