• How to plan a menu
• Ways to make meal time less stressful

Conquering the Kitchen Has Openings for Male Caregivers
Conquering the Kitchen has openings for a class starting Thursday, July 14! The class is hands-on and teaches basic cooking skills, as well as, menu planning and how to navigate the grocery store. Lunch is provided.
Although the class was designed for male caregivers, it is also a great fit for any man who simply want to brush up on their cooking skills. The class is 4 weeks – July 14, 21, 28, and August 4 from 11:00-1:30.

Male Caregiver Cooking Class
A new class for male caregivers will start in Kent County in July. The class will help male caregivers brush up on their kitchen skills, or help them develop new ones.
Participants will also learn how to plan a menu, ways to make meal time less stressful and how to follow a recipe. Additional community resources will also be presented.
"What we have seen in recent male caregiver classes is that many men were not as involved in meal planning or cooking in the past. Now they are taking care of their spouses and trying to learn how to do all of these tasks and it can be overwhelming," says Staci Shell, Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Contract Coordinator at AAAWM and instructor for the class. "Our hope is that by helping them conquer the kitchen, we will relieve some of their stress, make meal time a much smoother process and help them meet other male caregivers going through the same struggles."
Respite is available and the class lasts four weeks. A second session is planned in Kent County for September. The goal is to eventually offer more classes and expand into other counties.
