A consistent habit of disrobing is not uncommon for dementia residents but it can be very challenging for family caregivers at home and can create a source of frustration and anger. Get creative to solve the source of the problem. There are specialty clothing items available by mail order or on the internet that feature zippers, buttons and snaps in the back that help prevent constant disrobing. Jumpsuit-style outfits are also available that integrate a colored shirt and tan pant that have been sewn together at the waist and button up the back.
