Meals and Menus

We like to eat healthy meals that everyone can enjoy. When dementia is in the house, I also plan for visual appeal and easy-to-navigate food. Not everybody can figure out what to do with 3 pieces of silverware, so often a meal must be fork-friendly only. Using the right plates, good colors, and simple place settings can cut down on mealtime confusion and improve the chances that most of the meal will be consumed.

I plan menus a week in advance and shop for ingredients based on those plans. The pantry is also stocked with basics, and my cookbooks are always in use!

Here are some of my mealtime solutions for Dining With Dementia:
