NRS Healthcare - Eating & Drinking Aids
Eating aids and drinking aids can be invaluable to someone who finds it difficult to hold and use everyday cutlery, cups and plates. Being able to have a drink and feed yourself independently plays a massive role in people’s wellbeing and dignity. That’s why dining aids such as our adapted angled cutlery or coloured crockery, and drinking aids like the Hydrant Bottle, are popular with so many of our customers who are living with a disability or age related condition which affects their grip, upper body mobility or vision.
In addition, we also offer dining aids that make mealtimes much easier for carers. A non-slip mat, for example, will stop the plate skidding on the table and allows those you care for to scoop up food independently – preventing spillages. Similarly, our range of adult bibs can also help keep clothes clean and comfortable, meaning less time is spent washing and more time can be spent enjoying the company of those you care for.
A weaker grip, poor vision or having the use of only one hand can make simple tasks, such as chopping or scooping up food, a time-consuming and frustrating experience. Our kitchen aids can make these tasks and others much quicker and less complicated – particularly for those living with:
- Weak grip or less strength in their arms
- A visual impairment
- Post-stroke symptoms
- Multiple Sclerosis
- A hand tremor
- Fractures of the wrist
- Cerebal Palsy
