Sandwich Baggies for the Frontotemporal Dementia Patient


Patients with Frontotemporal Dementia definitely dislike conduct handling. Activities that require numerous means should be separated into increasingly simple terms. Placing a sandwich in the cooler for a later dinner seems like something basic, yet it’s frequently excessively confounded for your parent or mate with Frontotemporal Dementia.

Putting away something in the refrigerator to eat is a basic idea for grown-ups and most youngsters. In the event that you’re eager, you open the cooler entryway. You snatch the compartment the food is in and closed the cooler entryway. You open the compartment, take out the food and eat it.

My dad or I will frequently make a sandwich for Mother and leave it in the refrigerator. Father’s made many, many egg salad sandwiches and turkey sandwiches. Recently Mother is adoring peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwiches.

On great days, my mom will make sure to open the cooler entryway on the off chance that she’s ravenous. We cautiously position the sandwich on eye level to augment the opportunity that she will see it Tupperware. As of now, on the off chance that she is alright to open the refrigerator, she will likely track down the sandwich. However at that point, whether she can eat the sandwich turns into a question of the instrument utilized for putting away it.

Tupperware or comparable plastic sandwich holders are excessively convoluted for my mom to open. We could utilize one of these holders and leave it open, however the bread would go dry. One way or the other, she will not have the option to eat the sandwich.

We took a stab at putting the sandwich on a plate and enveloping it by aluminum foil. However, my mom didn’t understand it was a sandwich since she never opened the foil and didn’t perceive the shape.

We took a stab at enclosing the sandwich by clear saran wrap. This time she could see the sandwich and got it. Be that as it may, the cling wrap ended up being excessively hard for Mother to deal with: she was unable to unwind it from the sandwich.

We changed to sandwich baggies and on the grounds that they are clear, they appear to work. Some sandwich packs are excessively confounded. A slider on top is excessively troublesome besides on the greatest days: Mother winds up tearing the pack open on the off chance that she considers it.

The uncompromising seal-lock sacks are excessively close, as well. Also, it’s a lot harder to tear those sacks, so they stay in the cooler or go to a venturesome canine.
