Comfortable Clothing and Accessories

When deciding what kinds of clothing to bring to a senior living community and how much, there are several practical matters that should influence your loved one’s wardrobe. The temperature inside the cottages is regulated to a level that would be perfectly comfortable for most active adults, elders tend to be cold-natured. Make sure your loved one has warm and comfortable vests, sweatshirts or jackets that can be worn with every outfit. Clothes must be easy to take off and put on and should be able to withstand lots of washing and drying.
