Amazing Dining Set Helps Make Eating Easier For People With Alzheimer's (Photos)
Everyone knows Alzheimer's disease causes memory loss. However, this devastating disease also comes with other debilitating effects that can turn even the simplest activities into daunting tasks.
Luckily, the struggles associated with eating may become things of the past for those with Alzheimer's and other cognitive impairments, thanks the clever designer Sha Yao.
Yao is the genius behind Eatwell, a special dining set created for people with Alzheimer's disease.
The unique shapes and colors of the bowls, cups and utensils all serve specific purposes to make eating easier for people who have cognitive and motor impairments.
In a recent interview, Yao told Fast Company,
Raising awareness and addressing the needs of people with impairments will allow them to maintain their dignity, retain as much independence as possible and reduce the burden on their caretakers. That's what made designing the Eatwell tableware set so rewarding.
