Caregivers can help with meal planning and preparation so meals are both healthy and enjoyable.

If desired, caregivers will help to keep foods and beverages that are unhealthy and tempting out of the home, although this is ultimately up for discussion.

Caregivers can also provide assistance with exercises as needed and can be there for support in case of blood sugar drops.
