How do Adaptive Pajamas help the Elderly?

Adaptive pajamas have numerous benefits. They help the elderly to be comfortable, look good, and
make assisted dressing easier for their caregivers. With discreet, fully open back pajamas and nightgowns that open in the back, have Velcro closures or snaps, they provide easy access when changing or dressing an elderly man or woman who is a bedridden patient. Sophisticated, soft, and expressly designed, adaptive pajamas and nightgowns are a wonderful comfort that an elderly loved one will find especially meaningful.

Comfort and convenience

Designed with end of life or palliative care in mind, pajamas that open in the back provide the illusion of regular mens or womens pajamas. Discreet back velcro closures ensure a secure, loose fit while attractive print and style details enhance the overall appearance of the adaptive pajamas and sleepwear. High quality fabrics and trims are important so adaptive pajamas provide the ultimate comfort next to sensitive skin.

Men and women's styles available

Adaptive pajamas and nightgowns are available for both men and women in styles that are designed for easy-on and easy-off convenience. They are also a great alternative to unattractive mens or women’s hospital gowns. Women's open back pjs and nightgowns are available in both short and long sleeve gown styles with beautiful lace detail. Men's open back pjs styles are a great option to typical hospital gowns for men and come in a variety of attractive nightshirt designs, including both short and long sleeve options.

Innovative Design

Many pajamas and nightgown designs that open in the back incorporate Velcro, closures in the back to help the elderly stay comfortable and easily change in and out of the sleepwear as needed for medical care. Since adaptive pajamas open up completely, patients are easily able to slide into the sleeves and never need to raise or lower their arms, as required by traditional pajamas making for struggle free dressing.

Adaptive nightgowns and sleepwear are an excellent solution for elderly men and women with decreased range of motion, limited mobility, bedridden, disabled, in hospice care or nursing home care. Dressing can be both challenging and a source of undue frustration for the elderly man or woman, however, with open back adaptive clothing and pajama solutions available, caregivers don’t have to struggle and patients don’t have to be uncomfortable again. Affordable, intelligently designed and attractive, adaptive styles are both practical and appreciated. Here are some great options
