Dehydration can lead to very serious medical complications. Ensuring adequate hydration is a crucially important responsibility for carers, as stressed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Problems can arise either because someone has difficulty physically bringing a cup to their mouth or because their thirst reflex becomes reduced.
Either way, there is equipment which can help with the problem and reduce the need for supervision and assistance from carers.
The Ormamin Range is designed to make drinking easier, with attractive products which reduce the stigma of using products designed for people with additional needs.
Cups have extra grip built in while cups with internal cones reduce how far the user has to lift the cup when drinking. Good thermal insulation ensures that drinks stay hot or cold for longer.
The use of a hands-free drinking aid is ideal for individuals with reduced mobility or those in rehabilitation:
We have two hands-free systems available:
This personal drinking aid that, once the mouthpiece is in position, the user can drink without using their hands.
~ a non-return valve
~ a 1 litre bottle
~ a flexi-grip handle
This totally hands-free drinking aid enables drinking, even when arm function has been completely lost.
