One of the biggest concerns for families who have senior relatives living alone is eating. Or to be more specific not eating properly. Senior nutrition is so important for maintaining strength, cognitive reasoning, mood, and good health. Yet too many of our cherished loved ones don't eat well enough.
Some seniors even skip meals altogether. Family members may not always know this or join the dots between poor nutrition and the health of their older parents or grandparents.
Meal Times Matter In Home Senior Care
How often do you or an aging loved one say you're not hungry, or that you can't be bothered to cook for one? It's a bad habit to get into, yet it's one that's all too common. Meal times matter a lot, and quite often good company goes with good nutrition.
Comfort Keepers Companionship Care Plans are just one of our many invaluable services in home senior care. Sometimes, younger family members are too busy to visit. Either that or they don't live nearby to spend a lot of quality time with aging relatives.
There are many downsides to dining alone, eating the wrong foods, or skipping meals altogether. Here are just a few of the more serious potential consequences of eating improperly.
- Can lead to a weakened immune system
- Muscle loss and poor bone health
- Involuntary weight loss
- Mood swings and depression
- Chronic fatigue
These and other diet-related health complications often contribute to falls and broken bones. We all know someone—or know of someone—of advanced years who's had a nasty fall in their home.
Most people who dine with others eat much better than those who eat by themselves. Comfort Keepers can fill that void. We match the ideal caregiver with the client so that they can enjoy each other's company as they share a nutritious meal. Good company and proper nutrition contribute towards a senior's quality of life. They then become healthier and happier, and that's always a good result.
