5 Foods that Can Improve Senior Care in Jersey Village, TX

Senior Care in Jersey Village, TXCarla was taking on the role of senior care provider for her father, but she didn’t know what she was doing in the beginning. He had taken a hard fall as the result of a minor stroke and while he was expected to regain his full functioning in time, she was going to be there for him to help out.

She knew that diet would have a significant role to play in his overall recovery, so Carla went out and found a number of foods that could provide great benefit to her father. She didn’t know if he would like all of them, but she encouraged him to eat what she made, and because he wanted to show his appreciation for what she was doing, he never questioned it.

5 of the foods that Carla made for her father as a part of the senior care she provided for him were:

  • Asparagus
  • Peas
  • Mint
  • Strawberries
  • Homemade bread
  • Asparagus

This spring vegetable is rich as an antioxidant. This helps to fight the effects of aging and though her father joked that is was too late, it has also been proven effective at preventing certain forms of cancer. It’s best to eat asparagus raw, though not everyone likes the taste. It’s great when added to salads, chopped up into small bits.

Peas
This has been a staple in many homes for years. Many kids used to try and hide their peas, sticking them under chairs or trying to feed them to the family dog. However, they can reduce inflammation and combat heart disease and even Alzheimer’s. They have plenty of vitamin C and E and even zinc. More peas, please!

Mint
This is considered a summer herb that is great for aiding digestion. It can also comfort the upset stomach. You can try adding some mint to a salad and even to certain yogurts. Its flavor can be considered strong, but the benefits it offers is remarkable.

Strawberries
Strawberries are considered one of the sweetest fruits, so not such a great idea for diabetics, but they are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants that have plenty of health benefits. You can get quite creative when it comes to strawberries, adding them to cereal, breads, and even just eating them plain.

Homemade bread
Store bought bread has so many additives and preservatives that it’s not that healthy. Certain types, especially fiber breads, can be helpful, but homemade bread can provide the senior with plenty of nutrition and health benefits. Avoid anything artificial and your homemade bread will be doing wonders for your loved one.

When it comes to senior care, the food that you make can provide great benefits.
