In the beginning stages of dementia losing ones’ ability to fasten buttons and pull up small zips due to poor hand dexterity is not uncommon, causing feelings of frustration and worthlessness. Often times clothing that is functional is chosen over what is fashionable and the individual’s sense of self-identity is slowly stripped away. Purchasing specially adapted clothing is a wonderful way of regaining independence and rediscovering self-identity.
This beautiful wrap-style dress, made from a natural, breathable fabric with additional stretch, fully opens to make independent and assisted dressing much easier. An elegant knee length, long sleeved dress with beautiful rouching at the waist and shoulders for a feminine touch. Its’ unique easy fasten system uses coloured Velcro fastening and tape on the inside, making fastenings and arm holes easier to find. Lime for left and Red for right. It is easy to open but stays securely closed and the Velcro will last as long as the garment when washed correctly. Machine wash at 40 degrees with Velcro fastenings closed. Quick drying, cool iron if required. Made from 95% viscose, 5% elastane.
Available in Ginko Print Navy, Shibori Navy or Dragon Red. Sizes: Smal8-10), Medium (12-14), Large (16-18) or X-Large (20-22).
