Healthy Diets for Seniors and Elderly in Huntington Beach, CA

Oftentimes, we find ourselves munching on the same types of food in an alternating pattern.  We tend to stick to our favorites, whether it’s spaghetti, salmon, or Chinese food for dinner.  For Elderly and Senior individuals, trying to convince them to stick to a completely new diet can be difficult.  It’s important to stress the health benefits that come with paying attention to what foods your loved one eats and that eating healthy doesn’t just benefit them, but their loved ones as well who care deeply for their well-being.

One diet that not many may know about is the Mediterranean diet, which has been known for its heart-health benefits.  The diet includes the use of olive oil as the main fat and consumption of fruits, nuts, vegetables, fish, and seafood.  A study conducted by researchers from the University of Navarra in Spain tested 522 men and women between the ages of 55 and 80 who were assigned to either the Mediterranean diet or a low-fat diet for 6.5 years.  The significance in the study lies in the fact that although both are heart-healthy diets, the Mediterranean diet was found to improve cognitive function and those on the diet were less likely to develop mild cognitive impairment or dementia.

At A-1 Home Care, our 24 Hour Caregivers focus on providing healthy and nutritious meals to Elderly, Senior, and Terminally Ill individuals, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  A well-balanced diet, daily exercise, and companionship are essential to a happy and healthy lifestyle at home.  No matter what your loved one’s care situation may be, we can find you an experienced and compatible caregiver for 24 Hour Live-In Care or Hourly Care.
