Backgound and History of Neater Solutions
Tilly is a lively 10-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy. She
recently reported on her blog:
"We went straight from swimming into Hanley shopping centre where we
enjoyed a jacket-potato lunch which was made all the more delicious with Tilly
using her amazing arm support. We then signed in at M&S to help with a
Caudwell Children bag pack in their food hall. This is always such a pleasure
as the cashiers are so friendly and the customers are so grateful to be helped
and so generous with their donations. Once again, this experience was all the
more delightful because Tilly used her arm support and was able to help pack
the bags. Im sure that between us we made a veritable fortune for
Caudwell Children judging by the weight of the collection tins."Link to: Tilly's

CONCERN OVER HEALTH RISK TO
The charity Age Concern have highlighted the serious health risks to
elderly patients who are often not given proper assistance in hospital when
eating. Age Concern says: "Hard-hitting statistics show that six out of ten
older patients are at risk of becoming malnourished or their situation getting
worse while in hospital."
Jon Michaelis, Managing Director of Neater Solutions said:
"Another report shows the importance of proper nutrition to people's
health. Therapists often report to us that their clients are at risk of
becoming malnourished if they lose independence in eating. People often lose
interest in eating if they cannot feed themsleves. In many cases, the equipment
we provide - from Dignity
Ware to Neater Eaters, can be a significant help in tackling this
