At Caring Clothing we want everyone to feel the best that they can feel! We believe that giving people with a disability the confidence and self-identity that they deserve is crucial to the happiness and wellbeing of our loved ones, so we have made dressing easier with functional and stylish Adaptive Clothing.
As we age, our bodies change. We may lose muscle mass and bone density, and our skin becomes thinner and less elastic. These changes can make it difficult to dress independently, especially if we suffer from mobility issues.
Adaptive clothing is designed to meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities. It features special closures, such as Velcro or snaps, that make dressing easier. Some adaptive clothing also has open backs or sides to accommodate medical devices such as colostomy bags or catheters.
There are many stylish adaptive clothing options available today. Here are three essential pieces that should be in every senior’s wardrobe:
Vests are sleeveless shirts with the ability to create warmth or just as an undergarment. They are easy to put on and take off, and they provide a layer of warmth without being bulky. They can also have wonderful benefits to those with sensory stimulation issues. For best results sensory compression vests are designed to be worn all day to keep the sensory system calm and the body relaxed. They are seamless and moisture wicking for guaranteed comfort and coolness.
Sleepwear is another essential piece of adaptive clothing. They typically have snaps or Velcro closures at the neckline and shoulders, making them easy to get in and out of. Some nightgowns also have side openings to accommodate medical devices. Our range of adaptive sleepwear includes nighties and onesies for women and all-in-one dignity suits for men specifically designed for people with limited shoulder movement. Our adaptive nighties have an open back for easy dressing and our onesies are perfect for those with dementia or wanderers, as it maintains dignity throughout.
Everyone loves a good pair of pants, especially those with needs for alternative openings. At Caring Clothing our range of side opening pants for men and side opening pants for women are essential for those with mobility issues or living in long-term care. Pants with elastic waistbands and side openings are comfortable and easy to put on and take off. They can be dressed up or down, making them versatile enough for any occasion, and they are perfect for anyone needing incontinence aids.
