Discussion Summary

I work in a CCRC and there are a couple of quite elderly women who have dressed with care and style all their lives.

Now that they are more frail, dressing is a real chore and frustration to them and accessories? Forget it. Those loving touches of earrings, brooches and scarves are just not possible.

So the question is, are there designers out there who can design clothes for the elderly who still care about their presentation to the world to give them the dignity with which they dressed during their earlier lives?
