When "Home Alone" is No Joke: Consider a Meal Delivery Service for After the Holidays

The holidays are a time for everyone to be together, but what happens when the holidays are over, and elderly loved ones are left home alone? Meal delivery services, like Mom's Meals, may be the perfect after-Christmas gift.

Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013

“Home Alone.” The movie title alone can conjure up a wry smile when we think of the youngster left home alone by mistake when his family leaves for a Christmas vacation.

But that phrase takes on new meaning when the holidays are over, and elderly loved ones are often left home alone after days or weeks of ongoing social interaction with family and friends.

What happens to elderly relatives and friends when everyone goes back home and to their own busy lives? Do they have friends to talk to? Are they getting enough healthy food to eat?

“We started ‘Mom's Meals' when our own parents started to age,” said Barb Anderson, the “mom” of Mom's Meals, a company that delivers fresh-made, nutritionally-balanced meals to those aging in place. “Living far from our widowed mothers, we knew that having nutritious meals delivered to their door could make all the difference to their health and to our peace of mind.”

Home alone after the holidays can take an emotional and financial toll on aging parents. They often find themselves in the grips of seasonal depression, and have little motivation to do much of anything, especially shop or cook for themselves.

Take care of aging parents after the busy holiday season means ensuring they have well-balanced, nutritious meals on hand, limiting their opportunity to compromise their often-fragile health.
