 This study investigated the effects of a collective cooking intervention focusing on mission planning on the cognitive function and frequency of cooking at home among community-dwelling elderly females. This study involved 39 elderly female residents living in the community. The residents were divided into a mission planning-cooking group (20 participants) and a cooking group (19 participants). Each program was held once a week for 6 months, and the cognitive function, psychological function, and social behavior of the participants were evaluated before and after the intervention. Results revealed that although the main effect was recognized in the cognitive functions, no interaction and no difference resulting from changing the frequency of cooking were observed between the two groups. These results suggest that although cooking intervention can improve cognitive function, its effect on cognitive function and cooking frequency is not clear. Therefore, this intervention strategy is in need of further consideration.
