About this title


"Well Aged" is more than just a cookbook. It is a resource guide for anyone caring for an elderly or disabled person. All recipes are designed to be easy-to-prepare, easy-to- handle and easy-to-chew. Extra calories and vitamins are packed into each of the over 200 recipes. If you have an elderly person in your life, or if you work as a caregiver, this is the book for you.

From the Author:

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.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
