Our Food Philosophy & Movement

We consider a meal to be an event.

Why is staying active important for seniors?

Staying active is important for seniors for a variety of reasons. Physical activity can help seniors to maintain their strength, flexibility, and balance, which can help to prevent falls and other accidents. Exercise can also help to improve cardiovascular health, manage chronic conditions such as diabetes and arthritis, and reduce the risk of developing other health problems. Additionally, staying active can help seniors to maintain their independence and autonomy, and can improve their overall quality of life.

In addition to the physical benefits, staying active can also have mental and emotional benefits for seniors. Exercise can help to improve cognitive function, reduce stress and anxiety, and boost mood. Participating in social activities and group exercise programs can also help seniors to maintain social connections and combat loneliness and isolation.

Overall, staying active is an important aspect of healthy aging, and there are many ways that seniors can incorporate physical activity into their daily routines. This can include activities such as walking, swimming, dancing, or participating in exercise classes or programs specifically designed for seniors.

Home care assistance isn’t just meal preparation and serving, it is about getting to know our client’s food philosophy.  We know that taste buds change as we get older, as do our abilities to chew and swallow.  Large amounts of food can be overwhelming and sensitivities to hot and cold or no sense of hot or cold can present challenges.  A comprehensive meal planning strategy is part of the over-all care plan designed with our senior clients
