Our Dignity range is the result of in-depth research and testing, including work carried out by Stirling University Dementia Services Development Centre.
People with dementia have some important requirements when it comes to the tableware they use:
– Coloured plates to allow them to see what they are eating
– Easy to use with rims which help to scoop and lift food
– Cup handles large enough for two fingers to slip through
As you can see from the design of our Dignity tableware, we have taken these important requirements into account and produced easy-to-use tableware for sufferers of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
An important quote from June Andrews, Director at Stirling University, is “if it is not a picnic, there should be no plastic”. We think it is extremely important for those with physical and mental impairments to maintain their dignity and this is why we have decided to create pieces of assistive tableware in Vitrified Earthenware. They also have added Alumina for extra strength, so they are less likely to break if dropped.
