When Cooking Is Too Much

Can't cook anymore? That doesn't necessarily mean giving up living on your own. Many communities offer services for older adults to assure access to nutritious meals. Look for these services:

  • Meals on Wheels brings food to housebound people.
  • Home healthcare aides help by shopping and preparing meals for older disabled people.
  • Community centers offer hot meals. Some are part of adult day programs. Minivans may be available to transfer people to the center. See

"Food in Adult Day and Residential Care: Questions to Ask!" on page 471.

• Many churches, synagogues, mosques, and other community groups provide volunteers who help older adults with shopping and food preparation.

For assistance, talk to a registered dietitian, a social worker, or call your local Agency on Aging. See "How to Find Nutrition Help..." in chapter 24.
