Part of caring for a loved one when they are critically ill is making sure they are receiving the proper nutrition. How and what they are eating are just as important as what medications they may be taking. Here is some important information about nutrition.
In certain cases our loved ones may require a specialized diet. Whether it’s maintaining blood sugar levels or controlling sodium intake, our caregivers meticulously help patient’s adhere to their special diet.
The nutrition needs of every patient varies depending on the severity of their illness and the stage at which they may be. Contrary to what is instinctual, in certain cases, it is necessary to limit food and/or water intake rather than increase it. It is extremely important to know what the proper amounts of food and liquids a patient can tolerate and our caregivers are extremely attentive to this.
