Practical Pants

imgres-1Dressing independently following a stroke is a challenge for many people and while companies offer assistive dressing devices, sometimes finding the right style of clothing is even more important.

She writes “First thing I learned was stop wearing shorts with buttons and zippers. What a nightmare. I learned to wear shorts with an elastic waist. It was too stressful trying to unbutton and unzip in a hurry and I always seemed to need someone’s help. It was also easy to wrap the waist around my thumb, since I had limited use.
