Feeding Elderly and Bedridden Patients
Feeding an elderly person requires patience, understanding, and skill. Feeding assistants in nursing homes are often busy and don’t have the time to work with your loved one to ensure they receive the assistance with feeding they really require.
Patients suffering from conditions like Parkinson’s, upper extremity complications like arm and hand injuries, amputations, or neurological such as tremors all need assistance in feeding themselves. Too often, the sheer frustration of failing over and over to get the food where it needs to go means these patients don’t eat as much as they should or only eat easy-to-handle food like cookies or crackers.
Our caregivers ensure your loved ones receive the nourishment they need in the comfort of their homes. This service extends to providing the best food choices for bedridden patients, prioritizing their health and well-being. All of this is on-demand, starting at $16 - $25 per hour.
