Local Caregivers Help Your Senior Loved One Eat Properly

Proper Geriatric Nutrition is a key to quality of life; Home Helpers Caregivers can assist with
everything from shopping to preparing healthy, nutritious meals

Boise, ID – Today’s Americans are more aware of the benefits of proper nutrition than any time in our history. Still, that doesn’t mean we all make the right choices. As we age, eating healthily and getting the proper nutrition from our food is more important than ever. According to the National Council on Aging, at least one chronic condition affects 80% of people over the age of 65. Eating well, along with staying hydrated, getting a good night’s sleep and exercising, can make a huge difference in their health and sense of well-being.

Owned by Mike Jackson, Home Helpers of Boise employs Exceptional Caregivers who have been trained to provide top-notch homemaker services for seniors. These duties can include helping with grocery shopping and preparing meals in the home in addition to companionship and more involved assistance. It’s up to each family to decide the level of care needed, which can then always be adjusted.

“We understand the vital role proper nutrition plays in quality of life for seniors,” said Home Helpers owner Mike Jackson. “It’s important that all of our clients receive proper nutrition, but especially those with chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, COPD and heart disease. I’m always amazed at how our Caregivers are able to subtly make sure their client eats what’s good for them, like an apple, instead of just what tastes good, like a piece of chocolate.”
