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.
