Cooking can be an empowering activity for someone with mobility issues, as it allows them to retain their independence, and cook delicious meals for both themselves, and their guests. However, it can sometimes be a struggle.
Here, Manage at Home discuss the ways in which you can adapt your or your loved one’s kitchen, so their mobility issues don’t cause them dinnertime dread!
