Based on careful research, the range of Diginity dining wares produced by Wade Ceramics are designed specially to help make eating and drinking easier for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
June Andrews, Director at the Stirling Dementia Services Development Centre explains that the dining experience is important in dementia. From the kind of food to the right time to eat and to having attractive wares can make a difference on the appetite. There are also special considerations on the designs, like needing coloured plates to see what is being served and that the plates need to have wide rims to help them scoop and lift the food.
These earthwares seek to enable individuals to feed themselves thus giving people their dignity and without having to use plastic items.
