The challenges of Alzheimer’s disease are affecting an increasing number of Canadians, their families and caregivers. More than a half a million Canadians live with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and that number is predicted to increase to well over a million in the next 25 years. This translates to over 100 000 new diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and other dementia issues annually. The burden on families in the number of hours devoted to the care of their loved ones is approaching a quarter of a billion hours annually.
Special needs clothing for seniors with alzheimer's assists in reducing the stress surrounding dressing and undressing tasks for both the patient and the caregiver. In the early stages of Alzheimer’s consider side open pants or trousers that use easy snap closures instead of zippers and buttons; consider a soft undershirt to replace a bra and non-skid socks and footwear. In the latter stages of Alzheimer’s if there is wheelchair dependency there may be need for a full adaptive wardrobe of clothes. Anti-strip jumpsuit solutions exist when disrobing issues compromise dignity.
