Hi! I have bulbar onset and have started to have real problems with spillage onto my clothes when I eat or drink (mostly when I drink.). Paper towels don’t cut it anymore. Does anyone know how to make or purchase a coverup or bib? Thank you!

Hi
If you google adult bibs you will get multiple hits. We purchased a collection online for my sister when she needed them. The terrycloth worked well for us

Hand towels work also, in the bandana position.

Search Amazon for 'disposable aprons'. They are cheap, lightweight, fold up small, easy to clean, disposable and provide good coverage.

Terry cloth adult bibs work really well and are better for the environment than disposables :)

Amazon has large adult bibs. I have a terrycloth one and it covers from my chest all the way down to my knees in a seated position. I've ruined many pretty shirts from my clumsiness.

I ordered 3 adult bibs from Amazon. They have snaps on the back and are washable. They are long enough to cover my lap.
