Food and conversation play a substantial role in our lives. What happens when we bring our loved ones into the kitchen?

We are continuing our conversation today with Melissa Bernstein. She is an author and occupational therapist as well as the Founder of Dynamic Companies which provides healthcare clinical and operational consulting to a wide variety of healthcare organizations. She brings 35 years of clinician, consulting, and geriatric rehabilitation experience. We look at why the Power of 5 Test Kitchen Cookbook- Caregiver Edition is different from other cookbooks and how we can successfully bring our loved ones into the kitchen for a meaningful experience.

Melissa shares about:
*How the Power of 5 Test Kitchen began and the connection to The Power of 5: The Ultimate Formula for Longevity & Remaining Youthful

*What collaboration looks like for those with neurodegenerative disorders and the caregiver

*What happens when we bring our loved ones into the kitchen with us and how we can shift our mindset around creating meals together

*Why is my loved ones appetite decreasing and other caregiver questions

*Easy and actionable steps for those that don't know where to start
