Nutrition and Mental Health Counseling Services at Ascend Home Health
Having a healthy mind, body and spirit are crucial components of aging gracefully. At Ascend Home Health, our mission is to enhance people’s lives through state-of-the-art health and wellness programs. That’s why we offer premium nutrition and mental health counseling services to patients in the comfort of their own homes, and to those residing in assisted living communities, group homes, and retirement and other care communities.
Good nutrition and a balanced diet are keys to health at any age. As we get older, daily food choices become even more critical in maintaining overall health. A healthy diet provides nutrients to nourish our muscles, bones and organs to keep them working properly and in pristine condition. Making good daily food choices can enhance a patient’s current state of well-being, reduce the risk of chronic diseases and help to maintain a healthy weight.
Our expert staff of licensed professionals works with patients to become familiar with their individualized nutrition plans provided by physicians. Navigating food labels and understanding the basics behind making the right food choices can be difficult, which is why we offer practical advice on ways to follow your prescribed dietary plan.
