When a person with dementia starts to have difficulty with eating and drinking, the Limon Dining drApron® is a dignified and joyful means of protecting clothing from spills. This beautifully designed and made garment is much more attractive than an adult bib!
The lively patterns, which face the wearer, can connect them to their past, so you could look for a pattern that reminds them of a favourite hobby or simply one that is joyful to look at and could spark conversation from and interaction with carers.
We designed this whilst looking after our own Mum who had dementia and it meant she always looked lovely and dignified. It fastens neatly and easily round the neck with a side front fastening. We originally made them without waist ties as we just found they got tangled in the wash, but we now offer them both with and without ties to give you greater choice. The drApron® simply drapes over their knee to catch any inadvertent crumbs. (Read more about the story of the Limon Dining drApron® here.
They are such beautiful garments, they don’t have to be worn just for dining, they also look lovely even over a nightie, and particularly when worn over our Amazing Merino sleeves. They are an easy way to look dressed for any visitors and feel good because
. They are all Made in England from good quality fabrics and we have included a towelling layer between two layers of the fabric for protection from spills. There is no plastic.
They make a beautiful and practical present.
