Care recipient (cr) doesn’t cook meals and is not eating healthy food

Try: #talk about the meals or specific dishes that the cr made in the past that were favorites of yours and other family members #tell the cr that you wish you had the time and talent to make that dish again ask if the cr can either fix it for you or show you how to make it in either case the food will be prepared and consumed #plan a specific meal buy all the groceries and then ask the cr to make it for you tell the cr that cooking the meal will really help you out since you work full time and have a very busy schedule #eating alone may be one reason the cr is not going to the trouble of preparing meals #offer to have meals with the cr and invite other friends and family members to join in this will provide company and make mealtime more enjoyable
