Two Handled Mug (White)
This mug is ideal for people who find it difficult to drink from standard cups or mugs. It can help if you have frail hands, weak wrists, and tremors, disabilities affecting movement or medical conditions such as arthritis that can affect your ability to grip. This mug has a large handle on either side, both of which are big enough to slip several fingers through which makes the mug easy to hold. You’re less likely to spill liquid because you can hold the mug securely using both hands rather than just one.
The Dignity range of tableware provides aid to individuals living with physical and/or mental impairments, designed specifically for use by those living with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Each piece is made from Vitrified Earthenware with added Alumina for extra strength so they are less likely to break or chip if dropped.
The ease of use of the products, available in three bright colours, yellow, green and white, can encourage eating and drinking helping with maintenance e of nutrition and hydration.
June Andrews, Director at Stirling University Dementia Services Development Centre, says:-
Eating and drinking is very important in Dementia. For all of us, the whole experience is crucial: not just the right food at the right temperature at the right time, but we are affected by the ambience of the room, and the company we are with. Not least the table settings are crucial. Having attractive crockery and cutlery can make a difference to our appetite and how we enjoy food. People with Dementia sometimes have special requirements. They need coloured plates that allow them to see what they are eating, and the plates need to be easy to use with rims to help scooping and lifting food.
This product range has been developed by Wade’s own design studio based on research undertaken, including the work carried out by Stirling University Dementia Services Centre. All items are lead free, safe to use in dishwashers, microwaves and freezers.
