Many of us spend a lot of time in the kitchen doing daily tasks, such as making drinks, preparing food and washing the pots.
At Complete Care Shop you can find a range of kitchen aids that enhance your safety and help with daily tasks, so you can stay independent and confident in the kitchen.
It is important to feel comfortable and stable when carrying out tasks such as washing up or preparing food in the kitchen. If you find it difficult to stand for a long period of time, you may consider a perching stool, which can be adjusted to a suitable height and reduces the time you need to stand. A perching stool can reduce the risk of falls through unsteady legs, helping you to stay confident in the kitchen.
If you find yourself straining to reach items that are high up or just out of your reach, it may be beneficial to rearrange your kitchen, so your utensils and food are easily accessible for you. Also, if you are unable to bend to reach the floor, a Combi Grabber can help you to pick up items, including the post, and reduce the risk of falls through overbalancing.
Eating a healthy and varied diet can help you stay energised and improve your overall wellbeing, but if you’re living with a health condition that reduces the strength or stability in your hands, food preparation can be a bit more difficult. Complete Care Shop offer a range of food preparation boards, such as the Swedish Fix It Food Preparation Board that holds food in place and enables you to slice, chop, clean and grate your food safely.
There are a whole host of other kitchen aids that can help to improve your safety and independence when cooking your favourite meals.
Many of us regularly enjoy a cup of coffee or tea throughout the day, but a kettle full of hot water can be a cause for concern, especially if you find it too heavy or difficult to grip the handle. If you do experience limited grip or strength in your hands, you may consider a kettle tipper, such as the Combination Kettle with Tipper, which tilts to pour the hot water, meaning you can keep your independence when making your favourite hot drink. Some kettle tippers can also be used with your kettle at home.
