Learn more about how our caregivers can help your loved one in Secaucus, NJ
Most people know that good nutrition plays a part in good health. This is particularly true for seniors and people who have chronic illnesses. Loneliness, poor physical health and depression can also play a major role in poor eating habits. Most elderly adults who suffer from these conditions disregard their nutritional needs, which in turn may lead to more severe health issues.
At Comfort Keepers in Secaucus, NJ, our caregivers take great pride in offering an outstanding level of care to seniors. We make sure our care services offer everything a client might want, and can be adjusted to their additional needs in the long term.

We help focus on the best food
Nutritional guidelines may be complicated and some lifelong eating habits may be difficult to stop. Our loving caregivers have training, which targets working with the client and their loved ones to try to find the best foods to meet their nutritional needs. For instance, care aides can teach the client and loved ones about the quantity of carbohydrates that are in the foods they eat. Care aides can buy and prepare meals with low sodium content, keeping away from foods that are high in sodium and must be avoided. Usually, the simple act of having a care aide prepare a nutritional meal and keeping the person company while they eat will make a considerable impact, usually leading to better nutrition and prevention of unwanted hospitalization.

- Menu planning
