We are delighted to read that Dycem’s Non-Slip mats and reels have been branded as a ‘must have’ gadget by a family caregiver with over 30 years’ experience. Writing for the over 50s membership organisation AARP, family caregiver Amy Goyer praised Dycem’s excellent non-slip properties for its myriad of uses;
- Stopping plates ‘sliding around’ with a Dycem Non-Slip mat which enabled her Mother to eat more easily following a stroke. Her Father also uses it to stop his plate sliding around.
- Preventing the family dog from moving its bowl when eating or drinking, preventing spillages of food or water.
- Avoiding accidents as the Non-Slip properties of a Dycem mat also make dog bowl ‘virtually trip-proof’ as it ‘sticks’ to the tile.
- Make dining and cooking easier by cutting and wrapping Dycem’s Non-Slip material around utensil handles or placing underneath a chopping board to ‘keep it from slipping’:
I particularly recommend Dycem, a nonslip material used by many occupational and physical therapists. It comes in different sizes and colors; it even comes in rolls, so you can cut it to your preferred size, wrap it around utensil handles or use it under a cutting board to keep it from slipping.
