Dressing

Advancing Parkinson’s can make daily tasks more difficult to perform. The video on this page will walk you through some modifications to clothing and the dressing routine to improve safety and reduce frustration.

There are many companies that offer products to help with activities of daily living, including getting dressed. Below are some options for adaptive clothing to make it easier for the person with Parkinson’s to get dressed or for you to assist in the process.

The information in the video above offers suggestions and helpful hints, but is not designed to answer all questions. Each person with Parkinson’s is unique, so the suggestions may need to be modified for your particular situation. You are strongly recommended to seek and build a team of professionals in your local area to help you on your caregiving journey. If you have questions or need a referral to a local provider, call the Parkinson’s Foundation Helpline at 1-800-4PD-INFO (473-4636).
