Assistance with Dressing

Irish Help at Home offers home care services that include assistance with dressing. If necessary, we will work with your loved ones in organizing their closet and clothes in a manner that allows for ease of access and convenience. We make sure any suggestions we offer are OK with your loved ones, as one’s closet is their personal space – something we respect. Many clients still enjoy the process of choosing an outfit to wear for the day. We allow your loved ones to partake in as much of the dressing process as possible before we assist – such as zippers, buttons, or shoe assistance. There are many clothing ideas that work well for the client such as fasteners that use Velcro. As for putting on sweaters or shirts, we always suggest the weak arm goes in first and the strong arm comes out last to minimize the physical stress involved.

“Our most sincere compliments to Irish Help at Home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the care you and your staff provided for our mother. We will be in touch again in future should she need any more care.”

Sincerely, Joan and Elaine Dressler
