Homemade MemoriesSM Recipe Contest
Maybe it's Mom's spaghetti and meatballs. Perhaps it's Grandma's apple strudel or Dad's chili. Every family has that favorite dish. But if your elderly loved one is no longer able to cook, you may not have had that special recipe for a while.
Many of you have pulled out the cookbook, retrieved that favorite recipe, and shared it with us. View the winning submissions on Facebook!
The winning entries have been published in the Homemade Memories Cookbook, now available for purchase for the 2011 holiday season. Proceeds will go to the non-profit Home Instead Senior Care® Foundation to benefit North American seniors.
The contest is part of the Craving Companionship program, launched to help seniors stay connected socially and eat more nutritiously. Tips and practical advice promote geriatric health. Research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care network reveals that the biggest mealtime challenge for older people who live alone is lack of the shared family experience including companionship.*
*The Home Instead Senior Care network completed 600 telephone interviews with seniors age 75 and older in the U.S. and 400 in Canada, excluding Quebec, who live alone in their own homes or apartments. The U.S. sampling error is +/−4.0% at a 95% confidence level. The Canadian sampling error is +/−4.9% at a 95% confidence level.
