Hope everyone is keeping well.

I’ve been caring for my uncle for the last 3 years, suffers from Parkinson’s and his condition is worsening.

He can’t hear and can’t speak so we communicate in sign language.

I noticed he’s now having difficulty eating due to the increased shaking.

Is anyone able to recommend any cutlery/plates that can make this easier for him?

I was told that red is a preferred colour?

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks
