It isn’t uncommon for your aging parents to lose interest in eating. This could be for a number of reasons, they may not enjoy eating alone, they have a diminished sense of taste or they simply lack an appetite. Some of these things can occur because of medications that they are taking. This is, of course, very concerning to their loved ones. If you are noticing that your loved one is no longer eating like they should, you can rely on our home health care professionals at Folsom Home Health Care to help you with this problem.

Giving Them Motivation
If your loved one has lost interest in eating perhaps it’s because they have just lost their desire to cook. Our professional home health care professionals can actually help give them the motivation that they are lacking, simply by taking an interest in their meal prep. They can help them find recipes that will appeal to them, cook with them, test out new ideas, and just get them back in the kitchen again. If they are starting to enjoy eating again, then the next step is to see how we can motivate them to cook on their own or along with us in the kitchen. Since there are studies that prove that seniors who live alone are undernourished, it is very important that we find a way to motivate them and encourage them to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal. Many of our experts have been very successful in doing this. We also offer housekeeping service.
