When we’re helping our loved ones, nutrition and food safety, is one of our top priorities Preparing meals becomes a part time job.
If your loved one has cognitive issues that affect their judgment or issues with mobility, preparing and eating food safely becomes an issue.
There may be concerns about:
- falling while carrying items or trying to pick up dropped items
- remembering to turn off devices
- eating spoiled food
- having trouble swallowing and chewing
I had all of these concerns (and then some) while I was taking care of Grandma.
I was able to share my experience overseeing Grandma’s diet and preparing her meals with AARP. Check it out in this article!
Thank you to AARP for working hard to educate family caregivers 🙏
