How Our Meal Delivery Service for Seniors Works
Freshly Cooked Meals. Nutritionally Balanced. Gourmet Meals Delivered with Care.
Our experience working in the senior care field prompted us to launch Martha's Senior Gourmet. Food quality, meal preparation and senior nutrition are the number one concern of families, physicians, and other care providers. Many seniors don't want to cook anymore and turn to eating out, eating poorly, or often not eating at all. For some, cooking, shopping and deciding what to prepare and eat are becoming chores they try to avoid at a cost to their health. Martha's Senior Gourmet caters to senior meal delivery. Our variety of home-style meals is designed with senior dietary guidelines in mind, delivered daily by our trained delivery personnel and ensures seniors are eating properly. More so, our goal is to make sure they enjoy the food and the daily contact with our delivery person.
Nutritionally Balanced Meal Delivery for Seniors
Martha's delicious gourmet meals are balanced with the right proportion of protein, fat, and carbohydrate. Meals are low sodium although our chefs ensure great flavor and taste. The generous portions are designed so proper nutritional balance is received with every offering. Every meal has 4-6 oz of protein, 3-5 oz of starch (mash, grilled or roasted potatoes, couscous, rice, or pasta) 2 oz of steamed, roasted, or grilled vegetable, and 8 oz of fresh vegetable or fresh fruit salad. Meals arrive in a microwavable container made of recycled materials, so they can be reheated if needed. Our delicious and nutritious meals are prepared fresh daily by our chefs in a local kitchen facility rated "A" by the health department.
