Delivered Meals Increase Seniors’ Safety

  1. 1.

  3. 3. Many seniors shouldn’t cook alone. Decreased hand- eye coordination and poor vision can make the kitchen a dangerous place. Without someone else present, the elderly may injure themselves, and it may be difficult for them to contact anyone for help.
  4. 4. However, with home delivered meals, your loved one doesn’t need to use any sharp appliances in the kitchen. The meals are simply stored in the freezer until use, at which time they are cooked in the microwave or oven.
  5. 5. Meal delivery not only increases safety in the kitchen, but it also ensures that your loved one is getting the nutritious meals he needs. Seniors do not need as many calories as younger people, and eating as much as they once did can lead to obesity.
  6. 6. However, each meal is portioned to have 300-500 calories, which is perfect for seniors. Meals delivered directly to the front door also eliminate the need to go grocery shopping.
  7. 7. Many food delivery services offer meals that are diabetic friendly and low in sodium. These meals have been created by nutritionists to ensure that those with special dietary needs are eating meals that are healthy for them.
  8. 8. As people age, they tend to become less sensitive to taste, leading to an increased use of salt to add flavor. This pitfall can be avoided by ordering prepared meals that use spices and herbs instead of sodium.
  9. 9. Healthy meals aren’t tasteless. Rather, they are delicious, especially as there is something for everyone. There are pasta, seafood and Mexican dishes. Those who love meat can try sliced ham with cranberry sauce, chicken Florentine, and stuffed pork chops.
  10. 10. Even vegetables, such as butternut squash and an asparagus medley, sound good. Prepared meals are also offered for breakfast. Cinnamon apple oatmeal, apple blueberry compotes and tomato basil omelets are just a few of the options to choose from.
  11. 11. Simplify your loved one’s life by having meals delivered to his home. You can rest assured knowing that he will be eating well and avoiding dangerous situations in the kitchen.
  12. 12. By helping your elderly family member, you will be reducing stress in your life as well.
