What Is Meal Preparation?
Our meal preparation service includes everything from planning out the menu to serving up a tasty meal. While we don’t deliver meals, our caregivers can cook whatever you feel like eating. We also consider specific dietary needs or restrictions. It’s like having your own personal chef at home!
What Tasks Does Meal Prep Include?
Caregivers prepare and encourage proper diet and nutrition based on each client’s individual needs. During our meal preparation service, we can:
- Create meal plans
- Go grocery shopping
- Prepare food for cooking
- Cook or reheat meals
- Do the dishes
- Clean and disinfect the kitchen
Some Things to Consider
Many seniors have dietary restrictions — diabetic diets, low-sodium diets, low-sugar diets. Our caregivers can work with the senior and their loved ones to develop a healthy meal plan to ensure that proper nutrition is being met.
The kitchen can be a dangerous place for seniors. There are heavy objects, high cabinets, and hot appliances. We can work with seniors to help them prepare meals safely. We also help with cleanup to prevent the spread of bacteria or food-borne illness.
