Adaptive Clothing and the "Age in Place" Trend

I came across this interesting article from the end of last year.  It mentions, “Ninety-five percent of people 75 and older say they want to stay in their homes indefinitely,”  and “age in place”.  It provides an excellent list of 10 safety-related products, and similarly adaptive clothing should be added to this list.  Elderly adults often face issues of balance, and clothes that simplify the day-to-day task of dressing oneself are not just items of convenience.  Rather, adaptive clothing has become another tool that assists in the growing trend to “age in place”.
