The daily meal program works with our parent business Badlands Eldercare.  It began in response to many of our service requests for HCA Services we have designed the REAL Food Program to meet the 4 primary needs of our clients in a financially feasible manner.

Client information form (must be submitted with every order)

Grocery Shopping

Transportation and mobility can be a challenge, lugging groceries is taxing on the body.  Inclement weather can often prohibit a trip to the store.  Appropriate exercise programs are a better solution for many seniors.  In addition the cost of food is increased or unavailable for small quantity purchases limiting variety and financial means to make healthy purchases.

Meal Preparation

Cooking for one or even a couple can be a challenge for everyone regardless of age.  Maintaining a well balance diet is a serious challenge for our seniors.

Light Housekeeping

Washing of dishes is a major component of daily housekeeping. Unwashed dishes is  a source of odour, insects and rodents moving into a home creating an additional health risk.  Meal delivery eliminates food prep dishes such as baking dishes, pots and pans in addition to the food service dishes.  Meals are provided in re-usable containers which are returned to their storage bag and exchanged the next day for sterilization.

Daily Welfare Checks

Our independent seniors manage quite well on their own, however there is an increased risk of injury and illness.  Daily meal delivery provides an opportunity to check on the status of our clients.  Our response processes are pre-determined by our client to deal with issues in an efficient and timely manner.

Our menu is designed specifically for seniors by a chef, a nutritionist and a farmer to go beyond providing for nutritional requirements.  Our Menu includes ingredients and preparation methods of an era gone by.
