Dinner with Dignity

This quite epic Gransnet section answering the question, ‘is it common to spill food down your front’ illustrates a range of potential food-spilling scenarios. Tea towels mentioned as make-do bibs can be sufficient for the odd spill, but then many people living with chronic illnesses and disabilities find such significant difficulty eating, swallowing and managing saliva that a more heavy-duty solution is needed. The traditional ‘bib’ adds insult to injury; the ultimate in dignity eroding equipment which often makes the individual struggling to eat then feel even more uncomfortable and perhaps avoid eating in social situations. Thoughtful and sensitive designs such as those made by Bibblebibs provide a much improved experience.
