Welcome to our Shop By Need Guide for Parkinson's Patients

Parkinson’s disease (PD) can make day to day tasks more difficult to perform. Symptoms such as tremor or dyskinesia (involuntary, erratic, writhing movements of the face, arms, legs or trunk) ― can slow down the process of getting dressed and we're here to help make dressing and clothing simpler.

In this Parkinson's Shop By Need guide, discover tips on what type of clothes to look our for when shopping for adaptive clothing, our recommended pieces for both men and women to help make self-dressing and assisted dressing easier as well as other resources to help build your "getting ready" or "unready" routine with confidence.

Before we dive into our dressing tools and adaptive clothing recommendations. Here are a few extra tips to keep in mind when getting dressed:
 
- Take your time. Hurrying can lead to stress, which can make symptoms worse
- Consider waiting for a time to dress when your medications are working well and you have the best mobility possible
- Do a few stretching exercises before getting dressed to warm up muscles
- If one arm or leg has more stiffness, put this limb into the sleeve or pant leg first
- Sit down when dressing. Choose a chair with firm support and arms. Sitting on the edge of the bed to dress can lead to loss of balance and falling

Meet the inspiration behind The Able Label

The Able Label was founded by Katie after her grandmother was diagnosed with Parkinson's and dressing became increasingly difficult for her. Our beautiful clothes have been inspired by Katie's grandmother and are specifically designed to make dressing easier, considering things like stiffness, slowness of movement and shakes.

Find out more about how Katie's grandmother inspired The Able Label by tapping the link below.

Tips for easier dressing for those with Parkinson's

Style is very personal and shouldn't be compromised if you might struggle with putting on and taking off clothing.

Adaptive clothing can help to manage and overcome a variety of dressing difficulties including cognitive ability, balance and strength.

In our clothing range, we've included discrete adaptations to transform lives, give back confidence, provide dignity and help to maintain independence.
