Stroke Clothing

Stroke, sometimes called a "brain attack", is a disease that effects blood vessels within or leading to the brain. The causes and the effects are varied. Our goal at Buck and Buck is to help the individual to remain as independent as possible in the act of dressing and to assist the caregiver, if a caregiver is needed, in helping the individual afflicted with stroke to dress easily. As you look through our catalog, you need to keep in mind the residual weakness or paralysis that the stroke caused to help you to choose the appropriate clothing. For example, if the stroke left minor weakness in the arms, most clothing that can be pulled on over the head or pulled up without having to use buttons may be best. Zippers with pulls added can also be very helpful to the individual with a stroke. If the stroke has left a paralysis in the arms and the person cannot dress him or herself, choose items that open down the back. This design will enable the caregiver to assist with the dressing process, even while the person is still sitting on or lying in the bed. If the stroke has left the person with paralysis in the legs, our bilateral side zip pants are useful because the zippers are long and the person can be dressed and toileted more easily than with the usual short zippers found in everyday garments. Talk with us if you are unsure about what garments will suit the special needs of your loved one with a stroke and we'll guide you to the right clothes.

Select from our Women’s Stroke Clothing or Men’s Stroke Clothing categories. Look for the AD symbol throughout our catalog. This symbol indicates adaptive clothing for the individual who needs help in dressing.

Women's Stroke Clothing Styles

Choose from our Stroke Clothes for women based upon the person's ability to dress herself as a result of the stroke.  The person dresses independently (self dresser) or needs help to dress (assisted dressing).  Keep in mind her limitations and ask, "Does she have weakness or paralysis in the arms or lower extremities?"
