My mom has moderate dementia in that she knows us and has long term memory but her short term memory is slipping. She is in a great assisted living facility which we are all grateful for.
I have recently bought her new clothes. We tried them on, they fit and she seemed to really like them. I put them front and center in her closet and also removed clothes that are too big or she no longer wears, (with her agreement). She isn’t wearing them and in fact, sometimes only puts on an undershirt with her favorite jacket over it. I’m wondering if this is related to her dementia. And while she certainly isn’t walking around naked, I’m wondering how to help get her into the new clothes in the morning. I can ask for a higher level of care, but she won’t like it. The clothes are all colors she likes and are easy to put on and remove, plus they all mix and match. She’s lost weight and her other clothes weren’t fittting. I know this is not a huge problem by any means but I know there is a lot of knowledge on this forum. Thank you in advance.
