For breakfast, our private caregivers for seniors will help put together something like oatmeal with honey and blueberries.

Working in some other grains like chia seed really increases the nutritional value, and is the sort of things in-home residential assisted living services near Sherman Oaks, CA experts would be able to help with.

Lunch options can include something like a quinoa salad. Private caregivers for elderly can assist with sautéing vegetables and cooking quinoa, then mixing it all together with some pine nuts or almonds to give it some crunch and additional interest.

Other lunch options include an omelet, with cheese, fresh spinach, and maybe even some diced ham mixed in. Or perhaps a whole grain wrap with slices of a pan fried chicken breast, plus some avocado and Swiss cheese and power greens rolled in. Yum!

Dinner options can include potatoes prepared in any number of ways, including mashed, fried, or roasted (with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder). Perhaps your elderly companion services helper can help roast Chicken with rice and a can of cream of mushroom soup in a deep roasting dish. Or dinner could include pasta, with fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, and some chunks of pan-friend or boiled chicken.
