Personal Belongings Tray Valet with Lid
- Long Term Care organizations understand the challenges of keeping track of patients’ hearing aids, eyeglasses, and dentures. In the busy caregiving setting these necessary and expensive aids are often lost, misplaced, broken, or worse yet, left unused.
- Patented specially designed storage tray eliminates the inconvenience and expense that results when patient hearing aids, eyeglasses, and dentures are accidentally discarded or misplaced.
Gone are the days when valuable aids are discarded with food leftovers, lost in bed linen, damaged in the laundry, misplaced in patient clothing, left unused in bedside cabinets, and more.
