Meal Preparation and Feeding

Our caregivers ensure that those we look after enjoy tasty, balanced, nutritious meals that help them stay healthy in the comfort of their home.

Meal preparation and eating can become a chore for elderly people, those needing post-operative care or those with dementia, among others. Age, certain medications and difficulty eating can lead to a loss of appetite.

Helping with these tasks is often taken on by family and friends, but it can be difficult to consistently find time to do this. Instead of enjoying quality time with a loved one, meals can become stressful.  

We can provide home health care assistance to make meal preparation and feeding a smooth process. Depending on your needs we offer help on a short-term or 24/7 basis.

What does home assistance with meal preparation and feeding include?

Meal Planning

We create a meal plan based on our client’s requirements (with input from loved ones), likes, dislikes, preferred mealtimes and routine.

Special Diet Plans

Our caregivers can accommodate special diets, including low-sugar or low-sodium requirements, allergies, cultural considerations and preferences.

Grocery Lists and Shopping

We can create a shopping list, with input from the client and/or their family, and go grocery shopping either with or without the client.

Meal Preparation and Cooking

Our caregivers can take care of daily meal preparation and cooking, or batch cook food and help store it in the freezer for later.

Assisted Meal Preparation and Cooking

If clients enjoy cooking or baking, our caregivers can encourage them to participate in meal preparation and provide any necessary assistance.

Feeding Assistance

Our caregivers can assist at the table, cutting up food, providing cues to remind clients to chew and swallow, encouraging sips of water or feeding clients.

Medication Management

Our caregivers can ensure that medications are taken regularly as directed, before or after meals.

Cleaning Up

Our caregivers will clean the kitchen, wash dishes, wipe down counters and appliances, sweep the floor and take out the trash after meal preparation.

Better Nutrition

We can provide tasty, well-balanced and nutritious meals that help maintain physical health, support the immune system and improve energy levels.

Home assistance with meal preparation can reduce the burden on family caregivers so they can spend more quality time with their loved ones.

Sharing meals with others fosters a positive environment around mealtimes contributing to a sense of well-being.
