Senior Memory Care In Kansas City: Benefits Of Cooking

Senior memory care in Kansas City with Clover Care Home understands the importance of healthy eating, and there are benefits to cooking with senior memory care. We understand nutrition is important and that is why we focus on home cooking and healthy eating.  We not only love home cooking and healthy eating, but we insist on it.

Good nutrition at any age is important. However, healthy eating and home cooking provide the best nutrition in your elderly years. Proper nutrition is the key to giving you energy and can help you control weight, manage certain medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

As a senior memory care in Kansas City facility, we have a personal cook who is dedicated to menu planning, nutritious meal preparation, and cooking personalized meals to help with any medical conditions or allergies you might have, all while being enjoyable to eat.

Another benefit to cooking is our twice a week, hands-on cooking activity that our seniors may participate in.  Our in-house cook, Laura, comes up with some fabulous cooking activities that everyone can participate in and enjoy creating something delicious. Cooking activates and can restore the senses. When you cook, smell, touch, sight, and taste are all used and can activate and aid in memory loss.

Sometimes just cooking a known and favorite recipe brings back memories from the past and encourages discussion among seniors. Senior memory care in Kansas City through our cooking club encourages seniors to work together with our team and peers to create something everyone can enjoy. This process reinforces social bonding. Cooking is better when among friends!

Senior memory care in Kansas City does not need to feel like the natural rhythms of life have ended. That is why it is important to keep doing the activities that each resident enjoyed prior to moving into Clover Care Home. We know that some of our seniors are excellent cooks and look forward to their expertise and input in the monthly meal planning and in our cooking club.

If you are looking for a facility that treats senior memory care in Kansas City with the utmost of importance, we have the experience you and your loved one need. Our staff is highly trained and qualified to keep our residents safe, secure, and to help make this chapter in their lives as rich and fulfilling as possible.

The care our mom has received at Clover Care has been nothing short of exceptional. The country setting helps to add to the inviting atmosphere in which our mom has thrived. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Clover Care has made a difficult situation seem like a natural transition in life. We would recommend it to anyone looking for long term care of a loved one.
