Wearing scarf to help with food spills

Hi everyone. I am four years post stroke . At eighty four years old I have solved the problem for me of messy spillages of my food when struggling to eat or drink with only only one hand. I now wear a gaily coloured light weight scarf which is easily washed in stead of having to wash my stained sweater so frequently. Has anyone else had this problem? Lilian.


@l_platt Hi Lilian

I like that idea. I might have to try that on hubhy. He’s a very messy eater & he can use both hands :woozy_face::woozy_face:

Happy new year.

All the time. I just wear an old fleece and change it before I go out or have visitors. Soup is the worst for spillage and drips.



It is the hole in my lower lip that causes that problem with which I am also plagued.

A solution to the problem is just what I have been looking for. So, many thanks, Lilian.

I won’t need to hide in a corner any more, proudly, chest held high, I will move forward with dignity restored.

Keep on keepin’ on
