Drinking Straw – One Way Valve


Finds Drinking Straw – One Way Valve aids a person with dementia to drink more.  The Drinking Straw – One Way Valve has been designed by Find to prevent the liquid flowing back into the cup once the person has stopped sucking. This not only encourages the person to drink more but also eliminates air being sucked into the stomach which can cause discomfort.

Hydration is essential to us all but especially to someone with dementia.  As dementia progresses and swallowing becomes more difficult a person with dementia may struggle to drink from a traditional cup, glass or straw.

  • Rigid design with valve fitted at the bottom of the straw
  • Design ensures that valve is not visible when it is in use The straw is rigid and the valve is fitted at the bottom of the straw and also prevents it from being withdrawn from our mug if used with the cap
  • Straw and valve can be separated and cleaned for multiple uses
