BOTTLES FOR HOSPICE CARE / FEEDING BOTTLES

BOTTLES FOR HOSPICE CARE

As there are no special eating tools designed for elderly, the hospital can only use syringe feeding to maintain the fragile lives of these patients.
The appearance of this air pump bottle is not much different from ordinary cups. It can visually make old people and their families feel that they are not a patient but an ordinary person. At the same time, compared to syringe feeding, this also provides a dignified way to eat, allowing them to eat every meal in their final lives and pass away decently.
After we were born, our parents fed us in baby bottles; when our parents were about to die, we also fed them in similar bottles, not syringes.
