Culinary Skills for Caregivers Training Series
Do your caregivers know how to . . .
These may seem like simple — and maybe even unimportant tasks — but to clients, it can be EVERYTHING! In fact, mealtime may be the most important part of their day.
Familiar foods, cultural favorites, and holiday meals do more than feed the body; they provide comfort, decrease depression, help form bonds, and bring a sense of order to the world.
That’s where Caregivers Kitchen comes in!
Basic Cooking Skills Make Mealtime More Meaningful!
Cooking classes help staff learn to:
Prepare safe and healthful meals,
Cook their clients’ favorite foods, and
Manage nutrition for chronic disease.
Clients and their families will greatly appreciate the effort your company makes to better understand their needs and specialize their care plan. Satisfied clients will stay with you longer, tell their friends and grow your business.
What courses are available?
Assign a single course or offer an entire learning path in Basic Cooking Skills and/or Cooking for Chronic Conditions to caregivers who are assigned to plan, prepare, and deliver food to the clients in their care. Once the caregiver completes the series, he or she will be awarded one of the Specialist Badges seen below. Then, be sure to market that your organization has caregivers who are trained as Cooking, Food Safety, and Nutrition Specialists!
