Clothing & Dressing Tips for Dementia Action Week

This week is Dementia Action Week, (21st – 27th May) and the Alzheimer’s Society is asking everyone across the UK to unite against this terrible disease and to take action. Whether big or small, actions can make everyday life better for people affected by dementia.

There are many ways you can take action and get involved including:

  • Support people with dementia by doing one of the following actions and update on your social media #DAW2018
    • I will be there for carers and loved ones and stay patient
    • I will talk to people with dementia and take time to listen
    • I will ask if someone needs help if they look confused
    • I will ask questions and learn more about dementia
  • Become a Dementia Friend – join the 2.4 million people already helping to make the UK more dementia friendly
  • Join an event near you – from tea dances to Dementia Friend Information Sessions search for events in your area.
  • Make a donation and help fund research and support into this disease.

There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051.  225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes. 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia.

Here at Adaptawear; we stock a huge range of adapted clothing that will help make dressing easier for people with dementia. Our comfortable adapted clothing have been specifically designed to aid independent or assisted dressing allowing getting dressed easier and less painful for a family member.

Here are some key tips to help when dressing someone with dementia:

  • Give the person choice although keep the wardrobe free of excess clothing
  • Organise the process – lay out the clothes that each item should be put on
  • Pick comfortable and simple clothing
  • Help the person stay comfortable
  • Make sure the clothing is not too tight or itchy as otherwise they may easily disrobe
  • Change clothes regularly
  • Go shopping together
  • Encourage independence and accept any unusual clothing choices

Due to Alzheimer’s, it can be difficult for individuals to get dressed by themselves, as well as being difficult for carers to dress a person with the condition.  As dementia progresses, people increasingly need more help with everyday activities, including dressing.  It is important to enable a person with dementia to make their own choices for as long as they can and if they do need assistance to offer it tactfully and sensitively.

Adaptawear’s range of adaptive and open backed clothing is ideal for men and women who suffer from Alzheimer’s and dementia.  This means that dresses, nightwear, trousers, tops and shirts can be drawn through the arms and fastened easily at the back by carers. The fastenings are so discreet that no one will notice and the dignity of the wearer is maintained at all times.

We also supply a range of open back clothing and all in one nightwear/underwear specifically suitable for dementia sufferers.   Do take a look at our clothes online or call us on 0800 051 1931.
