A recent study on Women, Health and Aging noted that cooking was one of the areas where many older women with disabilities continued to take responsibility. Even among the more disabled group, most of the women over 65 studied were responsible for cooking the family meals. As elders are more likely to have vision problems, how can they continue to cook, a past time which is important for both nutrition and a sense of contributing to the household? We highly recommend you download this free cookbook on cooking with visual impairment. Not only does it have some funny moments, like when the guests mistook the weevils in her flour for rye, but it also has some really good recipes and advice on everything from shopping to organizing your kitchen. It is both a cookbook and stories about dealing with loss of vision without losing your independence.
