Marc and Annie O’Neill (Occupational Therapist) have been working together since March this year. Marc identified he wanted to improve his cooking skills and practice making meals at home. The Therapy Team have been supporting Marc with his goal. Together with Marc’s Support Workers, Annie has been working with Marc to build his capacity to prepare meals independently.
So far, they’ve made spaghetti bolognese, nachos, and most recently a chicken and vegetable stir fry with the aid of his adapted chopping board to slice vegetables. The team assisted Marc to create a visual cookbook and using his newly learned skills in the kitchen, Marc’s freezer is now full of delicious meals that he has cooked himself.
Marc is also developing his social skills and participating in an exercise program.
Well done Marc!
