Senior Care: Best Foods for a Healthier Heart


While we highly recommend companionship and home care services to have someone help you with meal preparation, you also need to know what foods are good for you.

As one of the leading providers of 24-hour care in Arizona, we know a lot about maintaining senior health. So, today, let us talk about the best foods that can help keep your heart healthy.

  • Almonds and Walnuts

    Eat more almonds and walnuts as they are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. They also have vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, magnesium, calcium, and fiber.

  • Berries

    Berries are rich sources of antioxidants and fiber, plus they are delicious. You can choose which berries you like as they all contain fiber, vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

  • Carrots

    Carrots are easy to incorporate into your diet as they are part of many recipes. They are rich sources of beta-carotene, primarily associated with lowering the risk of heart disease.

  • Fish

    Like almonds and walnuts, fishes like tuna and salmon are also rich sources of omega-3. Omega-3 contributes to vital bodily functions as well as helps lower triglycerides.
