How do you prepare meals?

Senior home care companies can assist with food preparation for your elderly loved one. We can prepare or assist in preparing some meals in advance so that your senior loved one has access to wholesome food at all times. These meal preparation service can be quite beneficial if your older loved one has dietary or nutritional requirements that they must adhere to.

 

How do we prepare meals?

The meal preparation techniques used by senior home care providers vary. Everything is based on what our clients require. For instance, your senior loved one might only require us to meal prep food for a few days if someone else will be preparing meals again in three to four days. In light of this, some of the ways we prepare meals include:

  • batches of food (cooking a lot of portions of one meal that your elderly loved one enjoys, so they can eat it regularly for awhile - many of these meals can be frozen and reheated later on)
  • Making one meal in advance (typically, senior home care may prepare the senior's evening meal before they return home for the day, allowing the senior to avoid worrying about cooking later in the day)
  • making the ingredients (if your elderly loved one still enjoys cooking, but needs some help cutting up ingredients or preparing them, our home care providers can do this)

These are only a few of the various ways that home care workers can assist senior folks with meal preparation.
