In the High Care section of my Nursing Home we have a gentleman who is mid 60s and incredibly OCD. Quite intelligent but a terrible Cleptomaniac. Eats or talks about eating all the time. Load voice and other residents get irritated a lot. Does anyone else have residents similar to this and have any good ideas?

If he is able to
give him some magazines to cut recipes out of and make a recipe scrap book. Get him to research history of particular food, eg Apples and then have a Apple day, cooking apple cakes, or muffins, pikelets with strewed apple in, apple juice, old apple box label and quiz.
it would give him a purpose if he is able to focus.
