Senior Care Recipes: National Steakhouse Month

Senior Care in Wilton CT

Senior Care in Wilton CTCooking can be an extremely beneficial activity for your elderly parent to do with you or to continue to enjoy with the help of a senior care provider. By getting into the kitchen and going through the process of preparing meals they are utilizing their mind in several different ways, helping to keep it stronger, sharper, and more responsive throughout their later years. Even if they have cognitive or physical limitations that impact their ability to handle certain kitchen tasks such as cutting or using heat like they used to, your support or the guidance of a senior home services provider can enable them to still enjoy the feeling of preparing their own meal and nurturing others through food.

June is National Steakhouse Month. While you could pack up and head to your local steakhouse for dinner, creating your own steak meal right at home is a far more economical option. It also allows you and your parent to create a meal using the ingredients that you most enjoy for a meal that is relaxing, delicious, and ideal for making memories together.

  • On a plate, combine the cracked pepper and sea salt

  • Place the skillet in the oven
  • Allow the steaks to cook
