Tips to help a visually impaired Care recipient (cr) maintain independent eating

Try: Set up the plate cups and utensils telling the cr where everything is located as you do always set up the same way for each meal attach a plate guard or food bumper to the plate this helps prevent food from being pushed off the plate an alternative is to use a shallow bowl or a lipped plate to put food on describe the position of the food on the plate using clock hand positions example the peas are at 3 o’clock try to always put similar foods in the same position be prepared to give verbal cues throughout the meal to help remind cr where things are until he or she gets used to the system

Materials: Plate guard or food bumper shallow bowl or inner-lipped plate
