 Backgound and History of Neater Solutions


Tilly's blog

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. I’m sure that between us we made a veritable fortune for Caudwell Children judging by the weight of the collection tins."

CONCERN OVER HEALTH RISK TO PATIENTS

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 problem.
