New Senior Nutrition Assistance Partner

By Emma Dickison

I have a terrific piece of news: Home Helpers® Home Care is partnering with Silver Cuisine to provide their service to Home Helpers clients at a reduced rate!

 I’m sure you’ve all seen the TV commercials with the various meal delivery services that will deliver meal components to your home. Silver Cuisine is similar but with an important twist. Their meals are created especially with the nutritional needs of people 50 and over in mind. Most important is that their meals are doctor-designed but chef-prepared.

Before we go any further, I bet I know what you’re wondering — but how does it taste?

I can assure you that our entire Leadership Team at Home Helpers has tried these meals and we were all extremely impressed with both the flavor of each dish and the variety from which to choose. This stuff is good! There’s everything from breakfast to lunch and dinner — even healthy snacks and desserts.

No matter our age, we’re all more aware of the impact proper nutrition makes in living a healthy life. Silver Cuisine boils that thought down to this essence: “food is medicine.” It’s especially important to pay attention to what seniors eat because it can make a huge difference in keeping them healthy and feeling good.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about Silver Cuisine is that they have a wide variety of Specialty Diet choices, such as “Heart Healthy,” “Diabetic Friendly,” “Low Sodium,” etc. All you have to do is order from the specialty menu that matches the dietary needs of the senior in your life.

But “specialty” doesn’t have to mean “boring.” For example, under the Heart Healthy selections, you can choose tasty dishes such as Chicken Cacciatore, Hickory Smoked BBQ Pork with Broccoli, Blackened Salmon with Creole Tomato Okra Stew and—well, I’m getting hungry just looking at the selection.

We’ve been discussing with our staff and Home Helpers local offices ways we can truly provide what we call “360 service”—that is, completely well-rounded care that helps seniors live safely and happily wherever they choose to call home. We’re very thorough before bringing on a new national partner, which is why we’re so excited about this association with Silver Cuisine.

I hope you’ll keep coming to this blog and our HomeHelpersHomeCare.com web page to learn more about our Silver Cuisine partnership and client discount.
