Household & Dining
Every aspect of daily life can be difficult when your disability affects you performing even the most simple tasks. The effects of stroke, arthritis, parkinson’s, poor co-ordination or muscle weakness can make meal times especially difficult.
Hexagon Healthcare stock a comprehensive range of plates, mugs and cutlery as well as reaching aids, indoor trolleys and grab rails to make life more manageable around the home.
Our selection of household dining aids include 1 and 2 handle mugs with numerous lid options. Generally these mugs are plastic and shatterproof but we are pleased to offer the 'dignity' range which is ceramic and stylish in 3 colours, incorporating spouted lids, straw lids and open tops, again with 1 and 2 handled option.
All of the plates and bowls Hexagon offer are plastic and generally dishwasher and microwave proof. The choice of plates and bowls include those with built-up lip (scoop) or sloping sides which enable food to be pushed easily onto your cutlery as well as plates with sections for separating foods. We also sell bowls/plates which have a bottom cavity you can fill with hot water thus keeping your food warm for longer. If you wish to use your own plates but have difficultly manoeuvring your food then you'll find the plate surround very useful. This simple flexible guard can be clipped to ordinary plates to provide a high lip around the plate to assist eating.
Using Dycem non slip matting under your plate or cup will also make things much easier as the non-slip properties prevent things moving. Dycem mats come in different sizes and in rolls which can be cut to size. We also provide a non-slip matting which is more textured than Dycem and can be useful for tray surfaces and desks etc.
Hexagon also stock disposable and washable bibs to protect clothing. With the preservation of your dignity some of our bibs come in styles and colours which are more flattering.
There is vast range of cutlery for those who struggle to eat using standard cutlery. Hexagon’s range include left and right hand angled cutlery which is easier to guide to your mouth, cutlery with padded or textured handles for those who have poor grip. It is also possible to get tape which can be wrapped around standard cutlery to enlarge the handle size and therefore make it easier to hold. This tape can also be used on toothbrushes, hairbrushes or any other item which is too slender to hold ordinarily.
We offer aids which can help opening cans and jars if you are disabled or elderly with hand weakness due to arthritis, injury or other disabling impairments. These include: jar twister, can pull, bottle opener, ring pull, one touch tin opener, hands free openers and electric options.
Indeed, Hexagon Healthcare cover a huge selection of products and if there is something you are specifically looking for please do not hesitate to contact us.
