In all such cases, personal care devices prove to be a boon, as they assist the user with daily tasks and help him overcome his limited strength. Many of them even help caregivers to assist patients with daily living tasks at any personal care setting. These products are from various top-selling manufacturers like Earth Therapeutics, Desert Essence, Health Enterprises, North Coast Medical, etc.

Crushed pills can then be used whenever required. Pill splitters are used to easily and safely cut the pills so that it is easy to swallow them.
