Elderly Ladies Clothing Choices

Elderly ladies clothing that is easily removed for changing for a patient in a nursing home or is being taken care of in the home, is very important for their comfort and and the ease of caregivers being able to look after their needs. It is a sad truth that when we age we require greater care whether it is at home or in an institutional setting. To lower frustration for a parent and a care giver accessible clothing is a must.

Open back clothing or adaptive clothing allows easy removal and dressing. Open back is actually overlapping back with snaps or Velcro for closures. This type of clothing is best for both toileting a client or changing clothes for washing or changing into night time wear. Once a person loses their mobility and flexibility, or if confined to bed or a wheel chair adaptive clothing are the garments of choice.

Adaptive clothing relieves the pain that can be associated with lifting arms beyond their normal range of motion. Since Adaptive clothing is slid on from the front tight joints are not stressed when the shirt or dress is being put on. This helps to relax both the care giver and the patient as both know that dressing will not be the painful ordeal that it was with regular clothes.

Elderly Ladies Clothing

It is difficult to find elderly ladies clothing when your parent has been admitted to a nursing home or the hospital. If the person is still mobile, regular clothing with some modifications can work. Once mobility declines or if the elderly person is confined to wheelchair or bed adaptive clothing is required for their comfort.

Adaptive Clothing

Adaptive clothing is really clothing that is open back clothing. It usually has velcro closures that can be easily open. The purpose is to be able to change the persons clothes while they are still seated or lying in bed with a minimu effort of both staff and the client.

Being able to open the back of the clothing makes it much easier on nursing staff to change elderly ladies clothing  and elderly gentleman’s. Since it is easier for nursing staff it is much easier for your parent or loved one. They don’t have the hardship of being pulled around unnecessarily. Think of fighting with a toddler to put on his snow suit. The difference is toddlers are much more flexible and don’t break as easily.
