Bon Appetit!

Food is important to a lot of people and my grandpa is no exception. When he first came to the U.S., he actually owned and worked in a Chinese restaurant in Pasadena. Some of his favorite stories and people’s favorite stories about him revolved around food so naturally, it was an important section to include in his communication book. Now that I work with a lot of adults with dysphagia, I am so thankful my grandpa didn’t have any difficulties swallowing so that he could enjoy eating. His assisted living facility didn’t have an immense selection of meals however, his children would often bring him something that they cooked or picked up at one of his favorite restaurants. Although they would often assume what he wanted to eat, he now had a means to request for something in particular.
