Plate Surrounds

People with limited reduced movement in their hands and arms can find it difficult to eat independently. It is quite common for people to only have use of one hand when eating but a plate surround can help them to overcome the issue and eat quite comfortably by themselves.

Eating Aids

The plate surround acts as a barrier so that the person can push the food against it with a fork before positioning the fork underneath the food and lifting. The barrier gathers the food instead of it being pushed across the plate and also stops the food from spilling off the plate and onto the table or tray.

Using a plate surround significantly reduces the struggle which a person with limited hand movement faces and also allows them to continue to eat without having to ask for somebody else to help them. Click here for more Aids for Daily Living.
