Ask your clients what kinds of foods they like and, keeping special nutrient needs in mind, find foods they’ll enjoy eating. When applicable, find out if the client’s doctor has given any dietary suggestions or restrictions.
Just as each client has unique dietary needs, remember that they also have their own preferences. There may be some foods that your clients just won’t eat, and that’s okay. As your caregivers put forth the effort and become familiar with the client’s taste, they will be able to prepare better-tasting, healthier food for them as a result.
What sort of foods do you prepare for your clients, and how do you manage training your caregivers on preparing meals? We would love to hear your ideas or have you provide more suggestions, just share your questions or comments below.
