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 cardigan is an ideal layering piece for extra warmth. The long sleeved style and pretty waterfall design add a touch of elegance. Long zips are located at the cuff for easier access and a large hook and eye fastening at the front makes opening and closing a cinch. Made from a natural, breathable fabric with additional stretch for extra comfort. Coloured tape makes finding fastenings and armholes easier. Lime for left and Red for right. Machine wash at 40 degrees. Quick drying, cool iron if required. Material: 95% viscose, 5% elastane.
Available in Shibori Navy or Dragon Red. Sizes: Smal8-10), Medium (12-14), Large (16-18) or X-Large (20-22).
