Soup Suggestions for Caregivers to Keep Seniors Healthy in the Fall

Suggestions for Caregivers from the Home Instead Care Team

When the summer heat dwindles and mornings get colder, many of us begin to think of the falling leaves, hockey, and warm soup. The mild aroma of stock simmering on the stove may bring back some great memories from childhood. It can also aid in giving you or your senior some much-needed nutrients. Soup is especially suitable for those of us who may suffer from problems with chewing because of dentures that don’t fit well anymore on the degenerated jaw and recessed gums.

Boost your vitamin and nutrient intake by cooking up a pot of warm, yummy soup or stew. Get help with cooking nutritious foods for your senior when you enlist the aid of a professional personal support worker from Home Instead Senior Care. We support you and your family in the Mississauga area with tailored service options, including cooking, companion care, light household duties, and transportation. Let us assist you or your elderly loved one so they can remain at home for as long as possible.

5 Soup Suggestions for Caregivers to Keep Seniors Healthy in the Fall

If you provide daily care for your aging parent or are living a retired life, you know that cooking can be tedious. Whether you are taking back Sunday dinners or looking for something new, consider these tasty soups to tantalize your taste buds:

  • White Bean-Sausage Soup: Enjoy this high protein soup made with Italian turkey sausage, white beans, and kale. It takes minutes to make but is delicious and packed with goodness!
  • Beef and Barley Soup: Throw this in the slow cooker and relish the aroma of meat and vegetables all day long. Your tummy will thank you!
  • Sesame Chicken Noodle Bowls: A great choice if you or your aged parent keeps the gluten intake low, or if you just love Asian-inspired food.
  • White Bean Chicken Chili Soup: Love chili but don’t always want beef? Why not try chicken and white beans instead? This comfort food will quickly become a go-to recipe.
  • Chickpea and Vegetable Stew: You don’t have to be a strict vegetarian to love a good bowl of vegetable soup. Try this spin on an old favourite.
