Parkinson’s disease affects the motor system and the central nervous system, contributing to issues with balance, dexterity and consistent tremors. The symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease can lead to difficulty getting dressed in the morning. Tremors affect the ability to fasten and unfasten buttons throughout the day. Adaptive clothing allows a person with Parkinson’s to get dressed easily and maintain their sense of style.
When you or your loved one begins to struggle with getting dressed, switching to adaptive clothing can provide a sense of comfort throughout the day. Rather than button enclosures, adaptive clothing features easy-to-reach snaps and zippers on your sides. If you require assistance getting dressed, you and your caregiver will be able to easily get you ready for the day without worrying about losing your balance or not being able to fasten your clothing.
Resident Essentials offers a wide range of adaptive clothing for men for every stage of the day. For cooler days, our back-snap fleece shirts and outfits will keep you warm and comfortable. Our screen-print shirts and outfits allow your personality to shine through. Loose, side-zip pants give your legs room to move and prevent skin irritation. When it’s time to get ready for bed, a loose-fitting nightshirt with shoulder snaps can easily be slid on to prevent overextending.
Our women’s adaptive clothing line features back-wrap tops, side-zip pants, and shoulder and back-snap dresses. Available in a wide assortment of colors and patterns, we have adaptive clothing to take you from day to night, regardless of the weather. Dusters, jumpers and drop-waist dresses are perfect for any occasion. For more formal events, our fancy drop waist dress provides elegant colors, patterns and peal buttons. Fashionable fleece outfits are easily fastened and provide comfort throughout the day.
