Today, there are a wide range of health health services that can be provided in the home. This means that more people can remain in the comfort of their home while they are recovering from a hospital stay or if they just need some additional assistance and support to continue to live independently. Home care is typically less expensive and more convenient. According to national surveys, it’s what most people say they would choose if they needed additional help.

Everyone knows that proper nutrition contributes to the best possible health. This is especially true for older individuals and those who have chronic diseases. Poor physical health, depression and loneliness can also play a key role in poor eating habits. Many older adults who experience these conditions neglect their nutritional needs, and this can lead to more serious medical problems. For example, it is essential for a person with diabetes to control the amount of sugars and starches in his or her diet and for someone suffering from hypertension to cut out salt from their diet.
