A UNIQUE RANGE OF ATTRACTIVE CLOTHING FOR PEOPLE LIVING WITH DEMENTIA.
At last, an alternative to ‘adult bibs’ and ‘clothing protectors’. Limon Attire has designed a unique range of clothing to help retain the Dignity, Identity and Individuality of those living with dementia. As well as being thoughtfully and attractively designed, we have changed our language to be more dignified too. Instead of clothing protectors or adult bibs ours are called Dining Draprons®. We say ‘those living with Dementia’ not Dementia or Alzheimer’s ‘sufferers’ or ‘patients’.
The garments are designed with the wearer in mind, and not just the convenience of the carer, but each attractive and functional garment can also help take stress out of some daily tasks, such as mealtimes and showering.
When a person with dementia starts to have difficulty with eating and drinking, the Limon Dining Drapron® is a dignified and joyful means of protecting clothing from spills. This beautifully designed and made garment is much more attractive than an adult bib! We designed this whilst looking after our own Mum who had dementia and it meant she always looked lovely. It fastens neatly and easily round the neck with a small magnet – no pressure needed, and there are no unnecessary straps to get tangled in the wash. The Drapron® simply drapes over their knee to catch any inadvertent crumbs.
Helping those living with dementia to shower or bathe can cause great stress for both dependents and carers. The Limon Showering range came about after we found our own mother would be agitated when we were helping her to shower. These simple garments helped give her a sense of privacy and maintain dignity, and showering time became a much calmer process where all involved were a lot more comfortable.
Everyday Merino Attire
New Zealand Superfine Merino wool is one of the finest natural fibres and has amazing properties that make it ideal for everyone, for everyday, but in particular for those with dementia. Some of the wearing and caring problems we encounter when looking after people with dementia can be addressed by this beautifully soft and fine knitted fabric. Our ‘next to the skin’ range is made from fibres that are less than half the thickness of human hair meaning it can be worn all day in complete comfort, as the fibres bend when in contact with skin rather than prickle.
It has temperature regulating properties, keeping you cool in the warmth and warm in the cool. Odour molecules are absorbed into the Merino fibre, effectively becoming trapped and undetectable to the human nose and only being released on laundering. This means the garments can be worn day after day without becoming smelly! Merino is naturally fire resistant, anti-static and is hypoallergenic. It is easily laundered and is stain resistant.
The stretch in the fabric makes it easy to put on and take off, and there are no difficult fastenings to deal with. This next to the skin range looks delightful under other clothing and is a great base layer. So have a look through our stylish and colourful range – there is something for everyone.
