VELCRO® brand fastener clothing
Easy Dressing with VELCRO® brand fasteners
Buck and Buck carries a wide range of clothing with VELCRO® brand fasteners to make dressing easy. We feature this type of clothing because many of our elderly customers have difficulty with diminished hand strength that makes the daily act of dressing difficult. Reduced strength in the hands may be as a result of arthritis or other medical conditions, but whatever the cause, our goal is to help the elderly person maintain as much independence as possible. We substitute VELCRO® brand fasteners for buttons, snaps and zippers if adapting the garment will be helpful to the wearer and to the caregiver. If you see a particular style in our catalog and you need to have easy wear VELCRO® brand fasteners added, let us know.
Look for the AD symbol throughout our catalog. This symbol indicates adaptive clothing for the individual who needs help in dressing.

Many women love this duster. We will be happy to substitute the snaps for VELCRO® brand fasteners if that will help the woman to dress herself. Just make your request known by writing a note to make that change in the comments section of your order.
This garment does not have hook and loop fasteners, but it does have a 3/4 zipper. Often the woman with hand weakness is able to manage this type of zipper because the zipper does not require her to join the zipper sections. The zipper is ready to be pulled up. Any dresses with a 3/4 zipper may be useful for your lady so please take a look. Also, if pulling up the zipper would be made easier with the addition of a zipper pull or tab, just ask us for this adjustment.
We carry several blouses with VELCRO® brand fastener front closures. Take a look at all of our blouse options.
As long as the woman can reach her arms up to pull a garment on over the head, any of our sweatsuits, so soft sets, or knit pants set/separates will enable her to dress independently. There are no buttons, snaps or zippers to deal with.
