Medically Tailored Meals

Medically Tailored Meals

Seniors and individuals with persistent, chronic, or severe health issues often require specialized diets to accommodate or manage their symptoms. Meals designed to address nutrient deficiencies and side effects of medical conditions help people stay healthier longer. According to the Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews, “Recent studies have demonstrated medically tailored meals to be an effective treatment intervention in both improving health and decreasing health care costs.” The medically tailored meals provided by LifeSpring Home Nutrition ensure people with medical issues receive meals tailored to their needs and personal preferences.

What Are Medically Tailored Meals?

Medically tailored meals reduce waste, improve health, and provide dignity to individuals with various health conditions. Everyone deserves access to the foods they need to improve their quality of life. Medically tailored meals are monitored by a registered dietician (RD) who uses lab results and other information to determine the best meal choices for individuals with medical issues.

Medically tailored meals do the following:

Many health issues are impacted by a person’s diet and general fitness level. Staying hydrated, eating fewer sugars and processed foods, and avoiding certain ingredients allow people to live healthier lives and manage their medical conditions more effectively. Medically tailored meals also reduce food waste.

Are Medically Tailored Meals Worth It?

Medically tailored meals are cost-effective, and people can get them delivered without paying extra for the service. Some people may wonder if medically tailored meals are worth the effort of connecting with a meal provider. However, research indicates that individuals who eat medically tailored meals have reduced medical symptoms and increased overall health compared to those who use standard grocery delivery boxes. According to The BMJ, “Medically tailored meals are the highest intensity intervention, necessary for a small but high needs group—those with complex medical conditions who are unable to shop or prepare meals.”

Medically tailored meals allow people to enjoy a wide range of foods without worrying about prepping, cooking, and cleaning up after meals. In addition, medically tailored meals help people maintain specific dietary restrictions. Dishes are optimized to the needs of each person. Many people experience positive health benefits quickly after changing their diet to include medically tailored meals. The nutritional experts at LifeSpring Home Nutrition provide everyone with the dignity of choice and work to accommodate the preferences of individuals and families receiving weekly meal deliveries.

Who Benefits From Tailored Meals?

Disadvantaged, disabled, and elderly individuals who may not otherwise have access to tailored meals benefit from medically tailored meal referrals. However, individuals of all ages can take advantage of the many health benefits of meals tailored to their unique medical needs and personal preferences.

Individuals who benefit most from medically tailored meals include:

Medically tailored meals significantly increase the quality of life for individuals requiring specific meal accommodations or specialized diets. Medically tailored meals decrease healthcare costs and improve health outcomes for vulnerable populations by significantly reducing emergency room (ER) visits. Eating more nutritious meals helps people avoid ER visits for preventable health issues.

Surgery Recovery and Wound Healing

Eating a balanced diet, including a variety of nutrient-rich foods, helps people recover from surgery and heal from injuries. Meals featuring whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and adequate protein boost the immune system and help the body repair itself. People recovering from surgery or severe injury often benefit from a referral for medically tailored meal services.

What Types of Conditions Can Medically Tailored Meals Accommodate?

Medically tailored meals accommodate many potential health issues and dietary restrictions. According to Contemporary Clinical Trials, medically tailored meals “address medical diagnoses, symptoms, allergies, inability to chew or swallow, medication management, and side effects to ensure the best possible nutrition-related health outcomes.”

People experiencing the following chronic health issues may receive a referral for medically tailored meals:

Medical conditions may impact a person’s ability to prepare, ingest, or digest foods. Medically tailored meals provide those individuals with the best foods to meet physical or dietary restrictions.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
