Maintaining a proper, healthy diet can be a challenge for anyone, and it can be even more difficult for seniors. Shopping can require more energy, mobility, or clarity of thought than some seniors can muster; the same can be said for preparing healthy meals. Without some assistance planning meals, cooking, or shopping, seniors can be limited to diets of unhealthy convenience foods.

Seniors Helping Seniors® Central PA care services can help. Every day, we assist seniors with meal planning, shopping, cooking, and even clean-up. We can also share a meal as well as some company. These are just a few of the many in-home care services we provide in Reading, Lancaster, Wyomissing, and nearby.

Any number of factors can keep seniors from enjoying a balanced, healthy diet. For some, it’s a lack of transportation to or from the store; for others, it’s an inability to plan for meals and make a thorough and well-organized shopping list. But even a well-stocked fridge is no guarantee of a healthy diet; some seniors lack the energy or willingness to prepare meals or to clean-up properly afterward.

We can help to prepare a shopping list, taking care not to miss essential items. We can transport you or your senior loved one safely to the store and back again. We can help you shop or, if you prefer, our senior caregivers can do the shopping for you. We can carry heavier groceries and, after we get home, we can store them as needed.

Want a home-cooked meal? Our senior caregivers can prepare one for you – maybe even a favorite recipe. We can stay for dinner, provide some warm companionship, and even do the dishes afterward. In short: Our senior care makes it much easier and more enjoyable for local seniors to eat well and feel their best.

A well-stocked refrigerator, a healthy diet, and a home-cooked meal can make so much difference to a senior. Could they make a difference to you or a senior you love? Contact Seniors Helping Seniors® Central PA care services today. Cooking and shopping are just two of the many senior care services we provide in Reading, Lancaster, Wyomissing, and the surrounding area.
