There are many reasons that could keep a senior from eating well. The inability to move their arms to feed themselves and difficulties with swallowing are just some of these reasons.
An elderly person could be suffering from a neuropathic disease, such as Parkinson’s, and is unable to move the spoon against their mouths before emptying its contents back on the table due to uncontrollable shaking or something like dysphagia that makes it extremely challenging to swallow their food.
The company and assistance of our experienced caregivers will help significantly. They will be encouraged to eat, will be taught with the most appropriate eating strategies for them, and assist them with eating by spoon-feeding or with the use of adaptive devices. With the help of our caregivers, seniors with eating difficulties could take their meals with minimal problems.
Don’t wait until you cannot help. Let our experienced caregivers help and try to improve the situation, giving you the time to observe better and happier results. Let us, at Advance Help Home Care, lend our expert help.
