It is common knowledge that proper nutrition maximizes a person’s overall health status.  This is particularly applicable to aging individuals who suffer from various chronic illnesses.  It has been shown that depression, poor overall physical health, or loneliness can play a role in poor dietary habits.  Those suffering from any of these conditions may neglect their nutritional needs, with the potential of poor nutrition leading to more serious medical conditions.  For example, it is crucial for an individual with diabetes to control the levels of sugars and starches in his or her foods, or for a patient with hypertension to control the sodium levels entering their body. 
 
Interim Helps Focus On The Best Food Choices 
At Interim, we understand that nutritional guidelines may be confusing and that lifelong eating habits are difficult to break.  Our team of home care aids and nurses receive specialized training focusing on how to effectively work with patients and their families in order to best meet their nutritional needs.  For example, your nurse can educate you and your family over how many carbohydrates are in typical foods consumed by the patient, or the aid can help you search for low sodium content foods.  Frequently, simply having a home care aid preparing a nutritious meal and keeping the patient company while he or she eats their meal can have a significant impact resulting in better nutrition and avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations.

  • Managing a client’s nutritional needs
  • Menu planning
  • Grocery shopping
  • Meal preparation
