Try: To help the Care recipient (cr) stay as independent as possible avoid confusion and limit the number of items used to serve a meal using one plate one cup and one piece of silverware limits the number of choices to make many times a fork or spoon can be used for the whole meal if more than one course will be offered serve them separately and bring and take away the matching silverware for example bring a soup spoon with soup and take the spoon and bowl away when the cr is finished before bringing out another part of the meal if the cr finds using silverware too difficult offer finger foods almost any food can be made into a sandwich cut the sandwich into four pieces

Materials: Plate glass silverware and napkin
