Oats & Berries are quick, healthy, and keep you energized throughout the day!

It is important for seniors to maintain their hobbies and interests as they age. With so much to offer its residents, Richmond, VA makes it easy for seniors to maintain their interests. While many seniors do enjoy meal preparation, it can become more difficult as they age. Being on their feet for long periods of time or preparing food that requires the use of fine motor skills can become a little challenging. A care provider from Always Best Care can assist with meal preparation and help ensure your senior family member is getting the nutrition that they need. In addition, these easy and simple meal ideas can also help.

Dried Fruit Compote

Dried fruits not only taste good but they are also nutritious. They can be put in a saucepan and boiled with water and lemon juice to create a compote. It is delicious to spread on toast or add to cereal or oats for breakfast or a tasty snack.

Bean Salad

For a light meal or even a snack, a bean salad can be a well-balanced option. Whether your senior family member prefers kidney, black, garbanzo, navy beans, or all beans, they can combine them with corn, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, pasta, or even chicken or tuna to create a healthy and tasteful bean salad.


Ambrosia makes a healthy dessert or snack. Seniors simply need to combine berries, bananas, yogurt and marshmallows to create this simple culinary dish.
