Finger Foods - Alzeimer's and Dementia Care Tips

Simple Tips for Caring for those with Dementia and Alzeimer's

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or related dementia?

Here’s a memory care tip from ActivCare Living: Choose finger food for calories.

Pacing and restlessness is common with Alzheimer’s residents. Bananas, PB&J sandwiches cut in half, and burritos make great calories on the go. These food items are relatively easy to prepare and great for a quick snack.  They are easy to handle, don't make much of a mess, and satisfy the hunger of those in need.  Making food that is easy to consume and palatable can be a necessity for Alzheimer's or dementia caregivers.
