The holidays are the time of year where gooey, sweet treats abound. While Sugar Plum Fairies dancing in dreams may be fun in the Christmas poem, we all are aware that too much sugar can cause problems. Having a little pie after dinner is okay as long as you do not overdo it. However, when there is a wide variety of cookies, cakes, and pies to choose from, how do you stop at just one? When you are the caregiver for your aging parent, you understand that healthy eating for seniors is a 365-day adventure.
Give your elderly loved one the tastes they love with less sugar when you choose low-sugar desserts for the holidays. If you need assistance making sure Mom is eating healthy every day of the year, seek the services of a personal support worker from Home Instead Senior Care in Etobicoke. We can provide your mom or dad with tailored services, including cooking, companion care, light household duties, and transportation. Let us help make this holiday season and any other day of the year less-stressful and keep Dad living life at home on his terms.
