In Home Care For Seniors & Their Nutritional Needs In Annapolis, MD
Comfort Keepers offers nutrition assistance as part of our in home care for seniors
Aging in place is the goal of most seniors that have spent a life time building their homes and circles of friends and family. That is where seniors feel the happiest, and that means they will stay healthier longer. One of the biggest problems that seniors face as they age is making sure that they get enough nutrition. Malnutrition is a common problem among seniors, and it is one that can compound any other problems they may have. Being able to age in place depends on seniors being able to take care of their health and that is where Comfort Keepers of Annapolis, MD comes in. Our in home care for seniors is designed to address each area of care that not only takes care of your loved ones needs but also ensures that they remain healthy and happy.
Helping with Feeding and Diet
We all know that nutrition is important, not just for seniors but for everyone. Without proper nutrition we have no energy, we cannot heal properly, and eventually we get sick. For seniors this fact remains the same despite the fact that their nutritional needs change. Because the elderly body processes food differently it is even more important that caregivers pay special attention to their diet. As a part of our in home care for seniors, we work with the following changes in seniors and work to ensure that they diet gives them the nutrients they need.
- Seniors have less of an appetite, which means that they consume less food, making it more important that every bite counts. Medications can intensify this.
- Aging digestive systems have to work harder to absorb important nutrients.
- Seniors experience a slow down in their metabolisms.
