Earlier I introduced you to Resident Essentials; today we look at Buck and Buck:
Elderly clothing is a line of clothing that is both age appropriate, easy to wear and easy to care for. As we age, it becomes more difficult to move, stretch, bend and twist, making the process of dressing a bit of a challenge at times. Buck and Buck realizes this, and our business is to make clothing for seniors look good, feel good, and most of all, to make clothing that helps keep the wearer as independent as possible for as long as possible. Loss of independence in the daily task of dressing can be very difficult for aging mothers and fathers, so we place their dignity in the forefront of our designs.
We select fabrics that are comfortable for the elderly to wear with patterns, designs and colors that are appropriate. We choose fabrics that are easy to launder and wear without the need for ironing. Our elderly clothing fits well to the body with waistbands, cuffs and necklines that are comfortable. We use zipper pulls, snaps and buttons that are easy to grasp. Many styles of our elderly clothing have VELCRO® brand closures that will not challenge the individual who has arthritis or weakness in a limb from a stroke. When the elderly need the assistance of a caregiver to get dressed, we have many options of open back and side zip clothing to choose from.
