As an avid cook myself, I am pretty in-tune with safety in the kitchen. I always have a fire extinguisher near by and also have an an excess of good (glove) hot pads on hand. I also have made sure my hot water heater is not so hot water can scald (not to mention saving a few bucks!). I came across an article that takes kitchen safety to a whole new level for seniors on AgingCare.com I wanted to share. It has some great tips including considering the handles on mom or dad’s pots and pans. Many seniors have had the same cookware for decades. A simple thing like different pots and pans that have dual handles and weigh a little less can make a huge difference to someone with arthritis. Have a read and cook on!
About Adam Seever, Owner
The son of two social workers, Adam grew up in Chicago and lived there for over 30 years. He began his career at a Chicago-based marketing services agency determined to make his mark in the industry. In 1997 Adam moved to Atlanta while working for the Coca-Cola Company, where he spent 8 years in their sports marketing division. Adam left Coke in 2001 to join Clear Channel Entertainment and later went on to work both domestically and internationally for the World's largest sports agency, International Management Group. Adam eventually worked as a consultant and spearheaded numerous high profile projects including the building of Coke’s iconic Coke bottle at Turner Field in Atlanta. While Adam always felt lucky to have worked in the exciting world of marketing, he also felt the need to participate in something with more of a connection to the community. That quest eventually led him to earn his CNA degree and become an owner of Caring Companions of Atlanta, LLC.
Adam is married and he and his wife have two younger children. The family shares their home with two cats and two hermit crabs. The kids are working hard to get mommy and daddy to add a puppy...time will tell! They live in Sandy Springs and are active in the senior community.
