Care recipient (cr) with limited strength has trouble opening sealed jars

Try: #breaking the seal on an unopened jar can be particularly difficult because of the force of the vacuum effect inside the jar #use a triangle-point manual can opener to punch a small hole in the lid #once the hole is made the vacuum is broken with the pressure inside the jar released the top will be easier to twist off however the hole in the top of the lid may make the contents spoil a little faster so keep the jar refrigerated and check the contents periodically or move the contents to another container
