Meal Preparation

In-Home Meal Preparation for Seniors

One of the most important aspects of your health is proper nutrition. Seniors are often on specific diets, requiring meals to meet those needs. Select Home Care employees will work with seniors, their families, and physicians to establish a balanced diet based on personal dietary restrictions, needs, and preferences.

We don’t stop at just preparing the meals though. Our caregivers are involved in every step of the process: meal planning, grocery shopping, preparation, tableside companionship, and clean-up. This ensures that the dining experience is both nutritionally and personally fulfilling.

Our staff collaborates with seniors and their doctors to develop individualized nutrition plans if necessary. Restrictions taken into consideration include:

  • diabetic needs
  • allergies
  • iron and other deficiencies
  • heart health
  • fat intake
  • bone density
  • brain health

Personal preferences are also very important. Caregivers strive to make food that their clients will enjoy. To this end, they learn the likes and dislikes of the person, as well as their eating patterns (when they enjoy eating bigger meals and lighter snacks).

In-home meal preparation also allows for full customization when it comes to variety, moderation, and balance. Unlike pre-packaged meals, in-home preparation ensures that all ingredients are fresh and meet specific dietary requirements and taste preferences.
