Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I have been on here. I hope everyone is doing ok.
I want to know if anyone has any tips for useful kitchen equipment for someone with parkinsons that enjoys cooking.
It’s my mum. She doesn’t so much experience tremors, but finds it increasingly hard to lift/move things, e.g. jug of water she finds too heavy if filled to the top, has poor manual dexterity, low vision (not blind) and also finds it hard to manage anything too complex, as her parkinsons has progressed. She has also started finding chopping and mixing food harder, and tiring.
She has always cooked food from scratch,and will continue cooking as long as she can.
She has stopped being able to use the magi mix as too big and heavy for her, and we already had to give away one she tried as a replacement.
She wants to be able to chop, blend, make cakes, soup, stews, etc.
I suggested she uses a number of smaller tools that each do one thing, as they would be smaller/lighter.
She has a hand blender. I am also thinking about mini choppers and mixers.
Any suggestions please? What’s worked for you or those you care for?
