This unique on-the-job reference is designed to assist homemaker/home health aides as they plan and cook meals, assist clients and families with feeding, and model the very best nutritional related practices so that a nutritionally sound atmosphere is established and can be maintained when the aide is no longer in the home. Providing both reference material and practical “how to” information in easy-to-read, table-and-chart format, it features a collection of tested recipes geared to simple, basic fare—which can be individualized to include ethnic preferences, age-related preferences, and economic circumstances. Each recipe presents all information on one page in a typeface which is easy to read for caregivers of all ages. Provides information relating to the preparation of the dish—including preparation time and time-saving tips, basic preparation steps, suggestions for changes associated with age, physical limitations, cultural requirements, calorie and fat content, and storage suggestions.
