About the solution
Karel was always asking for help to closing and opening his shirt. Suffering from Alzheimer’s, his condition was getting worse as he was getting older, and his hands were shaking more and more.
Despite of his increasing physical limitations, the patient, who is over 80 years old, has a clear mind.
So Karel had the idea of using Velcro, which is also a cheap solution, to help him be more independent when he dresses himself. He asked his daughter Ria to replace all of his clothing buttons with Velcro.
Now he is able to close its "buttons" without help, positioning the ends of velcro one on top of the other.
It was also a solution that didn’t take much time to implement. Karel received very good feedback from the healthcare staff.
