Story behind the book: author interviews

Don’t give me eggs that bounce: 118 cracking recipes for people with Alzheimer’s is a bestselling cookbook that has helped revolutionise approaches to food in aged and dementia care

Published by HammondCare Media (2014), this beautiful cookbook celebrates the dignity of older people, people with dementia and those with eating difficulties by offering nutritious, delicious food across a range of dietary needs. Available now - buy here and here

All of the recipes have been carefully analysed and tested and are clinically appropriate. Easy to read chapters provide advice on nutrition for older people, successful mealtimes for people with dementia, understanding swallowing difficulties and how to prepare and present appetising and nutritious meals, including texture-modified food and drinks.

The delicious recipes cover all the main meals of the day, as well as dessert, beverages and mid meals which are especially important for older people and those living with dementia who often cannot eat a larger meal.
