Clothing for Seniors with Disabilities

Many seniors with physical and mental limitations have unique clothing needs. When my mom's dementia became severe she frequently stripped off her clothes. Fortunately, I discovered anti-strip underwear which allowed her to wear her own clothes and also protected her dignity. I recently visited the Adaptive Clothing Store at 1320 Portage Ave. In my experience they have quality adaptive clothing for seniors and are extremely helpful. I invited them to share information with us.

Adaptive Clothing Store in Winnipeg

  Adaptive Clothing is a relatively new term, that’s why you’ve probably never heard of it. So what is it? Adaptive Clothing is medical device that is specifically designed to aid the dressing process for people with limited mobility. Adaptive Clothing simplifies the process of putting on and taking off clothes for both staff and patients, relieves stress and anxiety levels associated with the process as well as shortens the time of the procedures. Due to Adaptive Clothing being a medical device, the purchases are Tax Exempt if a doctor’s prescription is present. The following are the examples of the features unique to Adaptive Clothing.

We can also carry wrap-around skirts and capris, bermuda shorts and many other clothing items for both men and women. These are just a few of the options that can provide a solution for arising challenges that are associated with the dressing.
Another unique feature of Adaptive Clothing that comes usually without mentioning is the material that garments are made out of. Majority of our clients reside in personal care facilities, meaning that their clothing will be washed in the industrial machines using high temperature and harsh detergents. A regular garment will not withstand that and Adaptive Clothing will. Special designs will hold its shape and will not deteriorate and color pallet will remain vibrant longer as well.
There can be a lot more said about adaptive clothing but it is best to see it with your own eyes to understand its benefits and feel the difference for yourself. We invite anyone who would like to learn more about Adaptive Clothing to stop by our store located at 1320 Portage Avenue, where our friendly staff will educate you and help you select the right option for your loved one if necessary. Our Spring Summer 2015 collection is already here, so there is no better time to stop by then now!
