Grip

Taps can be replaced with a long handled design. Tap turners from disability catalogues are a cheaper but generally less effective alternative. Some pens are designed to be easier to grip (see Writing). Handles can be built up using padded racket tape from a sports shop. There is also cutlery with built up handles which are easier for some people, although they may be heavier than standard cutlery. Rubber gadgets for opening jars are available. Using a towel gives more grip than just using your hands. Kettle tippers, available from disability catalogues, hold the weight of the kettle or jug to make it easier to pour. Use a small jug to carry water to the kettle rather than carrying a full kettle.
