Owner of Home Instead Senior Care Edmonton, CPCA
All of us should eat healthy meals. As a caregiver of a dementia patient, you know that proper nutrition is crucial to keep them strong and help with their disease. You may have noticed your mom’s behaviour has changed, or she has lost quite a bit of weight. If so, now is an excellent time to maximize nutrition in the meals you fix for her. A balanced diet and a little patience can help ensure your loved one receives exactly what he or she needs.
Give your Dad the best nutrition in a way that encourages him to eat. When you cannot be around, an Alzheimer’s caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care, West Edmonton will be happy to step in and assist. Our highly-trained, passionate personal support workers (PSW) understand your senior’s needs. They offer much needed support for you and your family with personal care, meals and nutrition, and light household duties.
