The Power of Food: Your Secret Weapon for Healthy Eating

The Power of Food: your (not so) subtle secret weapon for healthy eating dives into nutritious meal tips from a caregiver who embraces variety. Learn how to incorporate diverse, flavorful foods into your own diet without feeling deprived. Eating healthy food poses unique challenges when caring for someone with dementia. Our guest shares invaluable insights on encouraging safe, nutritious meals as eating difficulties arise with cognitive decline. From grocery shopping hacks to creative plate presentations, this episode equips you with strategies to make mealtime more appetizing and less stressful for both you and your loved one. If you're struggling with picky eating or appetite loss in dementia care, tune in for a fresh perspective on healthy, enjoyable eating.

Our Guest:

Sherri Yarborough is caring for her 93 year old mother. Sherri also started Praxis Senior Caregiving Solutions. She realized that to survive caring for her Mom, she was going to have to rectify their past relationship struggles. She earned her Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her education as a policy analyst was an invaluable tool for managing the interpersonal changes to the relationship with her mother. 

Dr. Yarbrough's decade long experience as a family care-giver has taught Dr. Yarbrough the importance of including herself and her needs in the care journey with her mother. Dr. Yarbrough’s ability to view a circumstance from multiple perspectives became the genesis for her Praxis for Care. The Praxis for Care is a strategy that helps family care-givers identify what they need in order to meet the needs of a loved one. The Praxis for Care is the foundation for her motto: care-giving is what you do for your loved one; giving-care is what you do for both of you. She created her business to give family care-givers a resource for navigating the demands of caring for a loved one.
