Essential for Your Health
Eating well is vital for everyone at all ages. Whatever your age, your daily food choices can make an important difference in your health and in how you look and feel. As you grow older, your metabolism slows down, which means you need fewer calories, your body needs more of certain nutrients, and it becomes increasingly important to choose foods that provide the best nutritional value.
By making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits, you are making the choice to live a healthy lifestyle which will promote your overall health and reduce your risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Meal preparation and nutritional education are an integral part of our senior care services.
At LIVEWELL, our Care Managers collaborate with our senior clients and their families to assess their nutritional needs and create specific meal plans to help promote healthy eating habits. Our Caregivers can assist with some of the following tasks pertaining to meal preparation:
- Assist with menu-planning
- Prepare nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner
- Take into consideration dietary restrictions and other limitations
- Monitor food and fluid intake
