Proper attire requested

People with dementia usually have trouble with clothing. They can’t remember how to put things on, they don’t choose the right clothes for the weather, or they undress in public.

 

One cold winter night when I arrived to pick up my mother for dinner, she was wearing:

 

1 pajama top

2 pairs of pants

1 jacket

3 pearl necklaces

11 bracelets

3 rings

0 glasses

0 underwear
