Buck and Buck has several special Alzheimer’s clothing solutions that will make dressing easier for the person with Alzheimer’s. Our solutions help the senior with the disability of Alzheimer’s, and the caregiver who provides care in the home, nursing home or assisted living facility. The key to remember about Alzheimer’s clothing is that simplicity will lead to success in getting dressed. If the person can dress independently or with little assistance, select items from our Alzheimer’s clothing that have few buttons, a zipper or even easier is the pull on or pull over the head styles. Fewer steps mean the more probability of success in dressing for the person with Alzheimer’s, especially as the disease progresses and more adaptive, special needs clothing become necessary. Select colors that coordinate so that the task of matching shirts with pants or blouses with skirts or pants is easy. Let Buck and Buck help you to help your loved one maintain dignity through independence in dressing for as long as possible.

Women’s Alzheimer’s Clothing – Inappropriate Undresser
Sometimes the individual with Alzheimer’s will pull at clothing and tug at buttons and zippers for lack of something to do.

To avoid this behavior and to protect her dignity, we have a collection of outfits that will keep her dressed and looking good. These garments should only be worn when a caregiver is available to assist the woman with personal care since she will not be able to carry out the tasks herself.
