AUDIO: A new recipe and resource book for home carers of people with dementia developed by dementia-specialists HammondCare has been launched in Sydney today by foodie and aged care advocate Maggie Beer.
Speaking at the international dementia conference Risky Business 2, Ms Beer said the book Don’t give me eggs that bounce was a wonderful resource to help carers improve the food experience for people with dementia and she encouraged everyone at the launch to take inspiration from its innovative recipes. She said the book was an important contribution to informing the community about the changes that ageing brings to a person’s nutritional needs.
The book, which contains “118 cracking recipes for people with Alzheimer’s,” has been developed and co-authored by HammondCare executive chef Peter Morgan-Jones, dietitian Emily Colombage, dementia consultant Danielle McIntosh, and speech pathologist Prudence Ellis.
After the launch, AAA‘s Natasha Egan discussed the new resource with Mr Morgan-Jones:
