Comfort Keepers is the leading Canadian in-home care agency, providing a wide array of customized care plans to independently living seniors in Victoria and the surrounding communities of British Columbia. Our mission is to enable local seniors to maintain their independent lifestyle and improve their quality of life at home.
Whether your loved one needs care for a few hours a week or they require 24/7 care coverage, Comfort Keepers can help.
When it comes to senior care, healthy eating habits are often overlooked or seen as less important in comparison to other aspects of senior living such as assisting with mobility, managing existing chronic conditions, or reducing fall risks.
However, Comfort Keepers is very much aware of the importance a well-balanced diet has on a person’s quality of life in golden years. As a matter of fact, aging adults who regularly eat wholesome, nutritious diets can expect to improve their overall health, keep chronic conditions under better control, and reduce the risk of developing numerous diseases commonly linked to poor eating habits and unhealthy foods. Research shows that when older people help cook and prepare meals, they are more likely to follow any dietary restrictions that are necessary because of their health conditions. Seniors who get care at home can often get advice on what to eat and how to eat it. It can be helpful to have extra hands to help with shopping and cutting.
For all these reasons, at Comfort Keepers of Victoria, we provide customized meal preparation services and help local seniors eat healthy, well-balanced diets.
Our meal preparation plans include but are not limited to:
For older adults who are incapacitated or have difficulties eating by themselves, our trained caregivers can provide feeding assistance.
We would also like to point out that our dedicated care professionals will have your loved one’s allergies or special dietary requirements in mind when shopping for groceries. Additionally, we will also make sure to use coupons and senior discounts that your Mom or Dad provides for shopping.
