I was motivated to write this book after seeing the difficulty my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's, had in managing everyday meals. Just getting the food from the plate to her mouth was almost too much for her. More food ended up on the table, on her clothes and on the floor than could have possibly gotten into her.
As I got into researching solutions I found dozens of adaptive utensils, plates, bowls and cups in catalogs for medical and rehabilitative supply houses. Before I had a reason to search for these items I didn't know they even existed.
Adaptive dining aids would only solve a portion of the problem. My challenge was to develop ways to make ordinary family meals easier for people to eat. My grandmother still liked spaghetti, she just couldn't manage the drooping noodles. My friend, Semu Huaute, still loves beef but can't chew steak anymore. My goal was to develop foods that could be eaten with one utensil, be loaded with taste and vitamins, and have a high enough calorie content to prevent the involuntary weight loss so common in the "oldest of the old," those over 80 years of age.About the Author:
As the oldest child in a large family with two working parents, I often found myself responsible for preparing meals. I developed a love of cooking and a real sense of happiness in providing nurturing foods for those I love. Later in life I met my husband's aunt, Dolores Bush, a Cordon Bleu trained chef, who was happy to teach me anything I wanted to know. Under her tutelage my cooking skills increased dramatically.
For the past 20 years I've worked in the high tech industry developing educational software for children. In 2000 I was laid off when Mattel sold its interactive division. I decided to "seize the day" and take the time to write the book I'd been carrying in the back of my mind for several months. The end result is "Well Aged: Dining with Dignity."
