Thoughtfully Prepared Meals for Seniors
You open your eyes first thing in the morning. It’s a gorgeous sunny day. The scent of a freshly brewed pot of coffee and warm croissants just out of the oven floats through the air. As you walk into the kitchen, there’s a twinkling mega-watt smile ready to greet you with a cup of your favorite java in hand. A beautiful bowl of colorful melon, pineapples and fresh blueberries is waiting for you at your table with a vase of daisies cheering up the room. Your day has begun.
Let Us Do the Cooking for You
We know that you may be an amazing chef yourself with a knack and love for meal preparation and cooking for family and friends. We understand you might not have a driver’s license, so it can be difficult to go to grocery stores on your own, and walking around a store with a shopping cart or a full basket might be tricky.
As part of Nurse Next Door’s meals for seniors services, your caregiver will handle all of your grocery shopping for you each week or accompany you on your daily errands if you prefer selecting your own ingredients from your favorite food shops. Have fun preparing a meal together with your Nurse Next Door home caregiver whenever you feel inspired. Share your menu wish list with your Care Manager and we will help to make your culinary dreams come true!
Friendly, Flexible and Personal Meals
Your caregiver will lovingly prepare meals for you at breakfast, lunch and dinner based on your culinary favorites and your most coveted snacks too. Tea-time with cookies after lunch? A relaxing nightcap of warm milk and honey just before bedtime? She will go the extra mile to prepare all of your comfort foods and more.
Your nutrition and health is as important to us as your meal satisfaction. That’s why Nurse Next Door provides healthy meals for seniors, giving you the option to enjoy foods that match your specific dietary needs, food preferences and nutritional requirements while still tasting delicious. Are you on a gluten free diet? Cutting back on sugar and salt? No problem! Your caregiver is well-educated with a deep knowledge about how to prepare yummy meals for the elderly that still meet your nutritional needs. She will create a special shopping list for all of your dining needs as well, taking your special dietary information into consideration.
Rest easy knowing you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner every day in the comfort of your own home with a heaping spoonful of care and an extra dash of goodness.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use Nurse Next Door instead of hiring a private caregiver?
What kind of background and screening checks can you do on your own for a caregiver?
All Nurse Next Door Caregivers are carefully screened with criminal background checks and vulnerable sector checks. We confirm our Caregivers’ educational credentials and verify upon hire and annually, that every nurse is registered and in good standing with their respective College of Nurses. If you hire a caregiver privately, you will need to perform background checks and screening yourself.

At Nurse Next Door, we ensure there is a replacement when one of our Caregivers becomes unavailable. We believe in continuity of care and will contact you to inform you of a Caregiver change.
