Cookbooks; Brain damage--Patients--Rehabilitation; Cooking; Grocery shopping
The purpose of this project was to create a cookbook for the members of Seattle Brainworks so they may participate in cooking activities with various adaptations and modifications. Seattle Brainworks is a pilot clubhouse program in the state of Washington that provides a structured workday, where the members participate in meal planning, cooking, grocery shopping and financial planning.
The desired outcome of this project was for members of Seattle Brainworks to have a tool that enables them to participate in cooking in the clubhouse, as well as resources they may use to apply cooking strategies at home. The cookbook provides recommended strategies and adaptations based on common limitations associated with TBI, analysis of tasks in cooking activities such as chopping, baking and mixing, meal planning and grocery list templates, and recommendations for kitchen organization. With these tools, members of Seattle Brainworks will have strategies to increase participation in cooking.
