Whole-Person Approach

Everyone has different emotional, physical, and social needs. A whole-person approach to client service ensures people receive the support they need to live healthy and fulfilling lives. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), a whole-person approach “means helping and empowering individuals, families, communities, and populations to improve their health in multiple interconnected biological, behavioral, social, and environmental areas.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses a whole-person approach to nutrition and client service to ensure people have the resources they need.

What Is a Whole-Person Approach to Nutrition?

Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of a person’s health. Food is medicine, and nutrients keep the body functioning properly. Balanced diets tailored to a person’s unique needs reduce health risks and help the body heal more quickly from surgery or other medical treatments. A whole-person approach to nutrition considers how social connections and environmental factors may impact a person’s ability to establish and maintain healthy eating habits. 

Everyone has different needs and expectations when signing up for weekly meal deliveries. LifeSpring Home Nutrition practices a whole-person approach to client services. Person-centered care does the following: 

  • Helps people focus on achieving long-term health goals
  • Takes into account multiple factors affecting nutrition, including physical activity, mental health, and social connections
  • Emphasizes positive behavioral changes 
  • Encourages collaboration between healthcare professionals and clients 
  • Creates an enjoyable relationship with food 
  • Empowers clients by educating them and giving them information to make informed decisions 
  • Engages clients actively in the decision-making process 
  • Personalizes meal plans to meet each person’s needs
  • Offers comprehensive nutritional guidance

According to the NCCIH, “Whole person health is a concept and a vision as well as an organizing principle. There are many ways to promote and achieve it.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition is dedicated to ensuring clients receive the services, resources, and support they need to live healthier lives. Providing nutritional education and individualized meal plans are a few of the ways the company ensures people have access to the information they need to make healthier lifestyle choices. 

Ensuring Meals Are Culturally, Personally, and Medically Relevant

A whole-person approach to service means taking into consideration all factors influencing a person’s diet. Culture is an important part of each person’s experiences and impacts their beliefs, expectations, and understanding of nutrition. LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers culturally sensitive food options and tailors meal plans to ensure they incorporate foods people find familiar and comforting. For example, LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers multiple Vietnamese meals and other culturally specific options, including halal and vegetarian dishes.

What Are the Health Benefits of a Whole-Person Approach?

Addressing multiple issues affecting a person’s ability to maintain healthy habits and routines improves overall health by providing necessary guidance and support. Each person has different challenges and barriers affecting their ability to establish positive eating habits. Speaking with a registered dietician (RD) at LifeSpring Home Nutrition may help some people overcome lifestyle, medical, or environmental obstacles. 

Some of the benefits of a whole-person approach include: 

  • Taking into account client preferences and expectations
  • Promoting mindful eating and self-care
  • Accommodating specific dietary needs, including allergies 
  • Addressing physical, emotional, cultural, religious, and nutritional needs 

Tailoring meal plans to the unique needs of each person and understanding how their social, environmental, and financial situation affects their health ensures people receive the best service.  

Lowering Healthcare Costs By Reducing Preventable Health Issues

Preventable health issues are one of the leading causes of death and chronic illness in the United States. A healthy diet and simple lifestyle changes significantly reduce the risk of preventable diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Every hour in the U.S., about 83 Americans die from heart disease and stroke.” Approximately 25% “of these deaths could have been prevented or delayed with better control of key risk factors . . . and health-promoting behaviors, including physical activity, healthy diet and avoiding tobacco use.” Medically tailored meals (MTMs) and diet education provided by LifeSpring Home Nutrition protect people from preventable diseases by improving nutrition and reducing risk factors. 

How Does LifeSpring Home Nutrition Prioritize a Whole-Person Approach?

According to Cathleen Anthony, M.B.A., owner of LifeSpring Home Nutrition, “Our business was built in 2003 on the values of taking care of family in the way a family member would, returning the dignity of choice, the kindness of allowing our residents to age in place, integrity by doing what we say we will for you, delivering excellence in product and providing value by meeting members where their needs are at.” Each person receiving weekly meal deliveries has a tailored meal plan carefully created to enhance the positive effects of medications, reduce symptoms of medical conditions, and provide emotional comfort. LifeSpring Home Nutrition prioritizes a whole-person approach to home meal delivery to ensure each person feels heard, valued, and respected.

Providing Resources and Compassionate Services

Social engagement and compassionate care for clients sets LifeSpring Home Nutrition apart from other meal delivery services. Delivery drivers connect with each client and use weekly interactions to build genuine relationships. Drivers are also able to provide additional support to clients by carrying meals inside, putting food away in the freezer for individuals with mobility issues, or providing additional resources to people struggling to meet basic needs. Emotional support and positive social interactions increase the effectiveness of healthy lifestyle changes. LifeSpring Home Nutrition goes beyond nutritional support to address all areas of a person’s health.

A whole-person approach to service involves taking into account any issues impacting a person’s overall health and well-being, including the health effects of environmental, medical, lifestyle, social, emotional, and nutritional factors.

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! 🤗😘
