Care recipient (cr) with hand tremors finds it hard to drink from an open cup

Try: Look for plastic tumblers with handles facing each other and fitted lids some can be sipped from and some can have straws inserted into them originally designed for young children they are now available in sizes and colors for adults their lids minimize spills and their two handles allow crs with hand tremors to use both hands to steady the cup locate these cups in adaptive and assistive equipment supply catalogs developmental disability resource catalogs and some local department stores although small ones are often located in the children’s dishes section select those in neutral colors if available rather than in children children’s patterns or graphics
