"Dad's hands shake pretty badly, which can make for some long and frustrating meals. I've learned to cut up his food in the kitchen or right when we sit down (I cut mine as well, so he won't feel like a child), and I encourage him to eat with a spoon, since a fork is harder to manipulate. I also put his soup in a cup, so he can sip it. He doesn't get as frustrated."
