Inability to raise a glass or to tilt the head to drink may cause waste and make it hard for a Care recipient (cr) to drink adequate amounts of fluid

Try: Place a drinking straw in a glass making sure it reaches from the bottom of the glass to the cr’s lips or look for a water bottle with a built-in straw that reaches all the way to the bottom of the bottle these will allow a cr with limited strength or movement to drink greater amounts of available fluids
