Fall and Winter Wardrobe Options for Seniors

With the leaves changing and the days finally turning cold in Northern Virginia, it’s time to think about fall and winter wardrobes. Dressing appropriately for the climate is critical for seniors to stay comfortable, safe, and happy. If you are caring for your elderly loved one, you may not be too concerned about the way they dress, especially if they dress themselves appropriately most of the time. However, as the seasons change, it is a good idea to help them assess their wardrobe to make sure they will be warm (and stylish) this season.

Always Best Care, an in-home caregiving service, provides some fall and winter wardrobe tips. They emphasize layering, and making sure that your loved one has invested in a high-quality winter jacket. Fall weather can be unpredictable, so it is critical to make sure your loved ones are able to take off or put on layers as necessary. As you focus on the practicality of the wardrobe, however, also take into account your loved one’s sense of style. If your loved one feels confident and good about what they wear, they’ll be more likely to dress properly when the weather gets cold!
