Specialized drinking cups, mugs and adapted straws help users maintain their ability to drink independently. Drinking aids are designed to allow users who have difficulty holding standard cups and glasses to be able to drink with little or no assistance from their caregivers. These adapted drinking products include devices such as 2 handle mugs with lids, sippy drinking cups for elderly, that are easy to pick up, hold and drink from without excessive strain or accidental spills. Straws are available in a variety of styles and lengths, and straw holders fit on top of the cup to keep the straw in one place. Caregivers will find these helpful drinking aids help their loved ones hold cups, drink beverages, use drinking straws or help them to provide liquids to an individual who can not drink on their own.
