FOOD CHOICES FOR SENIORS WITH DEMENTIA OR VISION ISSUESWhen cooking meals for your family this holiday season, it is important to consider any special needs your loved ones may have. Food choices for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia or vision issues will need to fit their skill level and abilities. For example, penne pasta can be used instead of spaghetti to help your loved ones spear it with a fork. This helps maintain independence and dignity in their dining experience. Some foods that encourage self-feeding are:· Cubed seasonal fruit salad or any sliced fruit· Tossed salad with dressing· Italian green beans· Steamed broccoli· Steamed cauliflower· Cheese chunks· Garlic bread· Sliced or cubed ham· Sliced sausages· Fish sticks· Chicken nuggets or cut into bite sized pieces· Old personal favoritesAdditionally, when setting the table remember to: · Keep it simple; use white plates and dishes to help food choices stand out.· Avoid patterned dishes, place-mats, and tablecloths as these may be distracting.· Use glasses which can be handled easily.· Plastic may be best in case it is knocked over or dropped.· Use minimal decorations.· Make sure the room is well lit to help those with vision problems see the options on the table.· Don’t use real candles.· Opt for the battery-operated votive candles· Stay away from plastic or glass fruit decorations which might confuse your loved ones.· Make sure your loved one with Alzheimer’s or related dementia or vision issues will be able to sit next to their primary caregiver who can offer assistance if needed during the meal.· Reduce noise by turning off the TV or any music playing in the background.

DID YOU KNOW

Each year, one in every three adults ages 65 or older and 2 million are treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries. The risk of falling increases with each decade of life. The long-term consequences of fall injuries, such as hip fractures and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), can impact the health and independence of older adults. Thankfully falls are not an inevitable part of aging. In fact, many falls can be prevented. Infact, many falls can be prevented.

Here is a checklist can help older adults reduce their risk of falling at home:

-Remove things you can trip over (e.g. papers, books, cords, clothes, and shoes) from stairs and places where you walk.
-Install handrails and lights on all staircases.
-Remove small throw rugs or use double-sided tape to keep the rugs from slipping.
-Keep items you use often in cabinets you can reach easily without using a step-stool.
-Put grab bars inside and next to the tub or shower and next to the toilet.
-Use non-slip mats in the bathtub and on shower floors.
-Improve the lighting in your home. As you get older you need brighter lights to see well. Hang lightweight curtains or shades to reduce glare.
-Wear shoes both inside and outside the house. Avoid going barefoot or wearing slippers.
