Description

Red tableware is a revolutionary concept that can help people with Alzheimer’s avoid weight loss.

40% of people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease will experience significant weight loss as their condition deteriorates. Although the cause of this weight loss isn’t completely understood, a major contributing factor is the patient’s difficulty in recognising mealtimes and the need for them to eat and drink.

A study at Boston University found that people with advanced Alzheimer’s consume more food and drink when served their meals on brightly coloured tableware. It is thought that the bright colours make it easier for the patients to register the difference between a table and a plate, and a plate and their food. This allows them to recognise when it is the time to eat and allows them to eat more comfortably and effectively.

9 men, all with advanced Alzheimer’s, were studied whilst eating and drinking from white plates and cups and using stainless steel cutlery. They were then studied again whilst eating from red plates using red cutlery. The men ate 24% more food and drank 85% more liquid when presented with their meals on the red tableware, proving that bright colours allow Alzheimer’s patients to concentrate on eating and consume more.

The Red Deluxe Tableware Set includes everything you need to make mealtimes as comfortable as possible. Since many people with advanced Alzheimer’s experienced reduced mobility and flexibility, this set is designed to make eating as easy as possible, with raised edges on plates and bendable cutlery to allow users to use just one hand to eat. All items, except suction bases, are dishwasher safe, and all plates and cups are suitable to use in the microwave too.

Included contents:

Large Scoop Bowl
With a suction cup on the bottom and a larger surface area on one side, this bowl makes it easy to eat with one hand without any slips or spills. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, except for the suction base. 150mm diameter.

Scoop Plate
At 235mm this plate is ideal for smaller meals or reduced portion sizes which is often necessary for people with Alzheimer’s. One side is raised higher than the other to prevent spills and make eating with one hand much easier.

Plastic Plate Guard
This clever plate guard fits around the rim of any plate between 200mm and 300mm in diameter to prevent food from falling from the edge of the plate, perfect for eating with one hand. It allows almost any plate to be adapted for use for someone with Alzheimer’s, and is dishwasher and microwave safe.

Egg Cup
The non-slip suction cup on the base of this egg cup prevents it from moving around or tipping over.

Bendable Spoon, Teaspoon and Fork
These bendable cutlery pieces allow the user to change the angle of their utensil for easier eating, which is important for those with limited mobility and dexterity. The soft cushion grip handles make them comfortable to use and prevent them from slipping out of the hand if grip is weak.

Rocker Knife
Just like the bendable cutlery the handle of this knife has cushioned grips for comfortable, secure use. The blade is gently rounded to allow the user to adopt a rocking motion when cutting food if strength is weak.

Nose Cutout Cup
This cup, with 237ml capacity, is designed for people who have difficulty extending the neck or lifting the head back in order to drink. The lowered edge on one side will easily fit the nose to allow for comfortable drinking.

Drinking Cup
With 2 removable mouthpieces this cup prevents tips and spills, and since the mouthpieces are extra long the cup is easy to hold whilst drinking. It measures 170mm high and can hold 250ml.

Mums 'special' plates Review by S
Product Rating
Since being diagnosed with early onset dementia my mother has rapidly lost weight - more so when she was put on medication which made her dizzy and nauseous. She does not want to take the medication any longer and I have to respect her choice for the moment. To help her restore her weight to a healthier level I purchased this. There is an initial barrier - that was all mine. My mother was going to be eating off plastic red plates, that look more they belong to a child's tea party rather than to my lovely 87 year old Mum. No matter I pressed on and I told her of the concept that it helped her eat a little more, because nutrition is vital to her wellness and she wholeheartedly embarrassed this idea. She now calls them her 'special' plates and I have a second set for me, so that we can all look the same when we have a meal together. So far she has managed to put on the initial weight she lost with the dementia medication, and the fact that she is trying to keep her food levels up makes me a little more relaxed about this nightmare situation, the roller coaster we carers cannot get off.

Good set Review by Julia
Product Rating
Bought this set as well as a spare set of cutlery for when Dad and me have lunch together. The plates remind me of picnic plates, but the colours are dementia friendly and I have noticed he recognises them easily and seems to eat more. I feel rather helpless as to know what to do to help him, but all I want to be mindful of this that he keep getting his nutrients from good food as much as possible.
Good delivery and friendly sales staff. would recommend (Posted on 5 February 2015)

Am quite amazed that this fact is not more widely known and I am very careful to promote this to other families coping with alzheimers. Review by MVH Stourbridge

I bought this set for my Father who was diagnosed with alzheimer's 6 years ago, recently we have watched as he seems to have rapidly deteriorated and I can say that I think this tableware has had a difference. I am most anxious that he keeps up his water intake as he is on medication, and the obvious happens when he doesn't drink his system tends to slow down (stop) and he gets constipation.
