"Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn", says popular chef, Jamie Oliver.
Oliver's remark is fitting for caregivers. One of the highest-ranked priorities for seniors is good food. This means high quality and a variety of meals that include seniors' dietary needs. Add in high nutritional value and superior service and a positive frame of mind results.
“Many seniors need help planning and preparing nutritious meals,” Mike Melinger, owner of Chicago's Home Instead Senior Care, told TheDoingsWeekly, a Chicago Sun-Times Publication. “Research reveals that seniors who live alone want good-tasting, nutritious food and stimulating conversation.” he told the media source.
Pamela Stosur, a senior caregiver with Home Instead, helps seniors eat a healthier diet by including more vegetables, especially salads. Stosur has tested various methods of preparing salads and cooking vegetables to get seniors to enjoy them. Better health is the results.
A cookbook of recipe submissions to Home Instead will be available for purchase later in the year with proceeds going to North American seniors.
