    Complete Care shop online has a range of such things. My OT usually has things for me to try before buying.

    My OT sent me some rolls of foam that fit over knife & fork handles. I find it's easier to eat with a dessert spoon and fork. Using a knife is just doable (cutting a sandwich for instance) but sometimes makes my index finger curl up πŸ˜πŸ™„

    'Neater Eater' is a robotic arm feeder, whilst it's not appealing to everybody, it serves a useful purpose. Several forum members have the machines, arranged through their OT.

    I have one working hand so tend to use a normal knife in that hand, but then struggle to "stab" food with a normal fork. I was given one with a wider foam grip, which works OK with soft food (eg omlette) but anything firmer I am struggling to stab and hold in place.

    I often resort to picking up food in my working hand... and asking for help (which I hate) also interested to see how others manage xx

    Screenshot_20220116-053944_Chrome.jpg Hi Doggymama I use homecraft kings cutlery. Its a mushroom know type handle with the knife attachment. It seriously helps me as you rock the knife rather than slice. Shop around on ebay etc. I've tried to put pictures on for you. ​ ​​​​​​​

    Hi, we bought angled cutlery for my mum. The fork and spoon were really great as at an angle they made eating much easier. We also bought cutlery with large grips which make them easier to handle (made out of lightweight foam). Best wishes, Deborah

    Hello, my husband is struggling to use a knife and fork, is there any type of cutlery that anyone can recommend that may help? He also has awful coughing when eating.
