Preventing Falls in the Elderly

Falling is never good. But for the elderly a fall came mean the difference between life and death. EasyUndies Medical Garments can reduce the risk of falling and increase the quality of life. I developed EasyUndies with that idea in mind. My mom had MS. She became unsteady on her feet. I remember so vividly in my mind her struggles. So years later those images in my mind helped me developed EasyUndies.

EasyUndies will help you each day get your undies on with the peace of mind of knowing that you do not have to stand up and risk falling.

"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all."

This quote from Oscar Wilde is inspiring. We all come in different shapes, sizes and needs. Don't just exist in life. Live it! Start each day with a positive outlook on life and your day will be brighter. Make a goal for the day. Smile ten times minimum! As you pass a stranger and they look at you, look back and say hello. Bring your joy of living to others. A positive attitude is very contagious. Don't just exist, live life!

Helpful MS Newsletter

A good source of information for anyone with MS. As you know from my blogs, my mom had MS. Back then when she was diagnosed I had never heard of MS. In fact my mom was misdiagnosed for several years. Precious years that she could have been treated. Today we are all fortunate to live in a world where information and research have come a long way. The research into MS has helped a great many people.

Helping is why I developed EasyUndies! To help those with mobility and dexterity issues. Adaptive clothing for independent living. Getting up each day and having the ability to put on your own undies! That is what EasyUndies can do for you. 

Try them, you will like them. And please email me and share your experiences with EasyUndies Medical Garments.

Peace of Mind

Peace and contentment are no big deal. They are right at our feet. But we have to carry them with us under all circumstances, beyond the satisfaction or frustration of our desires . . . .

- Dainin Katagiri
EasyUndies can help you with peace of mind. Knowing that you will be able to take care of yourself with your most personal part of clothing. Your underwear. Try not to be frustrated with life. Think beyond that. Think of all that is good and wonderful in your life. Contentment comes in many different ways. Always try to think positive for that will bring contentment.

Reducing the "Stressors" of MS

This thoughtful article discusses how stress might act as a possible trigger for some MS symptoms and even reduce the effectiveness of some MS medications. As those diagnosed with MS are aware, day to day tasks can become quite challenging. We are hopeful that our EasyUndies adaptive clothing product line will alleviate some of the worry that goes along with dressing and be part of any action plan to reduce the “stressor” of getting dressed each day!

Dan Joseph: Painting a Path Through the Parkinson's Jungle

A wonderful story worth sharing. Dan came to look at life as the cup is half full instead of the cup is half empty. In my reading I felt Dan's story was worth passing on. We all have stuff in our lives. Some people choose to share and others keep it all bottled up inside.  You are not alone. Life touches us all. Some of us are touched early in life and some of us later. But what is important is what you do with it. Be strong! Try not to let it take away the person you are. Find a way to touch your inner strength and in return you will touch others. Dan found a way, painting. Find your way. It is not about how good you are at something. It is about trying. Keep moving forward. Keep living each and every day with the idea, " The cup is half full." Dan found that is the best medicine for what life brings your way.

Take Care,

On Courage

You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give.

Semi-independence in Youth and Aging

This article brings up the interesting concept of “semi-independence” in aging and how everyday tasks become more formidable with age. It also uniquely compares tasks that we might have done with our children with those we may now perform to help our aging parents. I wholeheartedly agree “It was worth it then, and it is worth it now.”

The Importance of Caregivers

As mentioned in this excellent article, there are now more than 34 million caregivers in our country. So often, a family member trying to assist another who wishes to live at home or age in place undertakes the caregiver role. This trend underpins our view that adaptive clothing will only increase in importance as the population ages.

No Worries

So I am sitting in a restaurant waiting to meet an old friend who I have not seen in 30 years when the waiter says to me, "No worries.” I say that all the time, but this time those words made me think. No worries! Imagine if we all had no worries! What a wonderful thought that would be. EasyUndies was developed with that thought in mind. Imagine each and every day taking the worries out of getting dressed. 

With EasyUndies you have no worries of falling, no worries of injuring yourself. Just the comfort of knowing that you have the dignity and the ability to put on your own underwear. Make it easy, make it simple. Make it an EasyUndies day.

How Caregivers Can Give Themselves "Me Time

An interesting article appeared in 

When you are caring for a loved one, friend or someone else always remember to take time for you. You matter. You give so much of yourself to others. You make a difference.

I remember with my mom, taking care of her, my kids and my grandmother at times seemed overwhelming. Some days I just wanted to get through the day only to do it all over again the next day. But someone gave me the best advice ever and I pass that on to you. Make time for yourself! Even if it is just a cup of tea. As my dad would say, “A spot of tea and relaxing thoughts.”

Don't feel guilty taking time for you! You deserve it and in return it will help you keep your strength when taking care of others.

Take Care,
