Why red? Studies show Alzheimer patients increase food intake by 24% and liquid by 84% when using dinnerware with vivid colors, such as these Redware Dishes.

People who have Alzheimer’s disease experience impairments not only in their cognitive abilities but also in their physiological status. Approximately 40% of Alzheimer’s patients experience significant weight loss. This weight loss may be due to many different factors but a study out of Boston University suggests that significant weight loss is due in part to the loss of the ability to distinguish contrast between colors.

People with Alzheimer's are not able to distinguish light colored food and drink on typically light colored tableware. When using tableware that offered a high contrast to the food and drink (i.e.: bright red and bright blue), researchers noticed that the participants in the study increased their food intake by 24% and liquid intake by 84%.

    RED Deluxe Set
    My daughter had not been eating. She would state very emphatically "I don't want it". The first time I presented these "new" dishes she ate every bite of food and wanted more. These really work for background colors for the food making them more bright and colorful. Thank You !

    Great product, very easy for people to use, clean, and maintain. plates with the basic set are a little smaller than imagined but they will definitely work for our purposes
