Why do Daily Living Aids make a difference?


Why do Daily Living Aids make a difference?


Daily Living Aids are the little things that many people rely on to make life easier around the home or garden. For many people, it's the simple tasks that can be the hardest, and this can be for a whole host of reasons. Most commonly, difficulty in doing normal household tasks can be due to a disability, or it can also be due to general weakness that comes with advancing years, or from recuperating from a recent injury or strain. For many people, even just using a normal kettle can create difficulties, as just lifting and coordinating your grip can be hard, especially if the grip is weak and even the weight of an empty kettle can create problems.The Uccello Kettle is a Combination Kettle with Tipper, which means that it does the job for you in making pouring a hot drink easier and safer in the home. The Uccello has an effortless power-steering pour action. The weighted base of the Uccello Kettle swivels on a rotating axis to help you pour hot water more safely and steadily so it’s a highly useful aid to have in the kitchen. Coming in at around £55 including VAT, it's a little expensive for some, but it's a very useful gadget that you’ll probably use every day. 


The Kitchen Workstation, is a device that's lightweight and portable and has almost too many food prep options to mention them all here but for the slippery carrot or escapee sprout, their days are numbered! What we really like about the kitchen workstation, is that it’s very versatile in that it can hold steady almost anything you need to cut, slice, grate or dice. Using it therefore leads to a better end result in your cooking. It can be used for the preparation of salads, vegetables, and a wide range of baking applications, freeing up your hands when whisking, spreading, or slicing. 


It's those little jobs that can be the very hardest, so a welcome addition to any kitchen is the 
Multi Use Tin Opener which has been designed to help out on that particular issue that creates difficulty for so many (not least the pesky ring-pulls snapping off) At just under £5 it's a real godsend. It enables you to easily open cans or tins with a ring pull, pressure sealed bottle caps, open tins, lift tin lids and open stubborn jar lids. It's very useful to have around in the kitchen! So, in answer to the question, why do Daily Living Aids make a difference, it’s about their ability to make jobs in the kitchen and home easier and less time consuming.
