The Able Label Blog
Carers do the most incredible job, whether as a professional or caring for loved ones. We understand that the daily life of a carer can be very rewarding yet challenging, and that any support can go a long way.
The Able Label clothing is selected and designed entirely to help to ease the process of dressing and this often includes assisted dressing.
We have selected a range of both womenswear and menswear items featuring clever adaptive designs which we believe carers can hugely benefit from.

We often get asked how does it work? Am I eligible, is my relative eligible? So we have put together this guide to make it all a little clearer.

If you are about to have breast or chest surgery, it’s crucial to find the right bra to take into hospital and wear in the weeks immediately after your operation. It is not only crucial for effective support but will boost your confidence and keep you feeling you.
