Eating well with dementia - edited by Liz Menacer



"Eating well is about keeping healthy, but also about enjoyment and well being. This is a fantastic and valuable collection of recipes and advice for people living with dementia, and those supporting them." Brian Turner CBE Chef, Restaurateur, TV personality.

Eating well and maintaining good nutrition can be a real challenge for people trying to live well with dementia, their families and carers, but eating is also about enjoyment and wellbeing: food can be a great way to bring back positive memories inspired by touch, taste and smell.

The first book of its kind tailored to and developed with people living with dementia, their families and carers, Eating Well with Dementia offers a wide variety of recipes that are easy to cook and delicious to eat - from finger foods to classic favourites.

As well as recipes that have been fully tested and approved by clients, carers and families at Young Dementia Leeds (a community service supporting people living with dementia), this book also offers nutritional and practical advice approved by a registered dietician.
