Right Nutrition for Healthy Aging

Right Nutrition for Healthy Aging

Meeting the nutritional needs of elders should be one of the goals of a Healthcare Service Provider in Hawaii. It is a reflection of quality care and a factor in maintaining effective caregiving.

Healthy aging comes with proper care and nutrition. When our seniors are getting the right nourishment, they can stay healthy and become more independent as they want to be. Here are some foods that a Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii can incorporate in their meal preparation:

  • Fiber-rich foods
    These will lower the risk of heart disease and Type-2 Diabetes. Whole grains such as wheat bread and cereals are rich in fiber. Prepare hot oatmeal and steamed rice to keep their tummies warm and full. Beans and peas are also good for the body.
  • Fruits and vegetables loaded with Vitamin C
    Vitamin C is an antioxidant that provides us a better immune system. The body needs to fight illnesses we acquire from the environment and other people. Examples of fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C are oranges, strawberry, kiwi, sprouts, capsicums, and broccoli.
  • Foods packed with Calcium and Vitamin D
    These are necessary for bone health for senior energy and activeness. Dark-green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, and dairy products are good sources of calcium and Vitamin D. Right amounts of calcium, combined with Vitamin D supplements, keep better absorption and prevents calcium stones.
  • Healthy Fats
    Omega 3 is beneficial for the heart. It can decrease the risk of stroke and other cardiac-related problems. Avoid trans and saturated fats.

Helping Hands Hale can help you plan healthy food choices for your elders’ peak nourishment. We provide home care services like grocery shopping and meal preparation. For more inquiries about our services, please call us at 808- 747- Care(2273).

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
