Adult Mealtime Protectors
Note: This article is about Adult Mealtime Protectors which most of us might know as Adult Bibs. PLEASE don’t call them adult bibs though when talking to the elderly.
There’s a connotation with ‘bib’ that brings forth a vision of a helpless baby. Although our senior citizens may need some clothing protections when eating, they are not babies nor are they helpless. Please refer to these as Adult Mealtime Protectors. Off my soapbox now….
For some reason, as we age, our mouths must get smaller because, I swear, I was always cleaning my Mom up after meals!
In fact, depending on what we were doing the rest of the day decided whether she’s get a relatively mess-free toasted cheese for lunch or that bowl of homemade tomato soup she dearly loved.
And, since necessity is the mother of invention, that’s how I found out about these very cool adult mealtime protectors.
Some of these adult mealtime protectors are even funny. I particular like the 1st link below – pearls are always a nice look. Adult mealtime protectors are way nicer than just tucking a napkin in at the neck. So, go ahead, heat up that soup before hitting the town with your favorite senior citizen loved one.
