Parkinsons Clothing

Parkinson’s disease presents a variety of difficulties in dressing, but the more common problems are a result of issues with balance, tremors and finger dexterity. The inability to remain steady while stepping into clothing, and the lack of ability to fasten buttons because of tremors or muscle rigidity can be very frustrating. Avoid garments with button closures and select items with zippers Velcro® closures, and when possible, choose clothing that can be pulled over the head or easily stepped into. Here’s a dressing tip to help the person suffering from balance problems dress more independently. Have the individual gather all items to be worn and then have her/him place the clothing on the bed within easy reach. Next, have her/him sit on the bed while putting on each item. There will be minimal times needed for standing to pull on the pieces of clothing and decrease the chance of a fall.
