Where to find non-skid socks that don't come off during sleep?

I'm looking for some socks I can purchase on the net and send to my Dad. SIL says she can't find anything locally. He's often waking in the night and going to the kitchen to grab a snack and she's afraid he's going to slip on the tile. Socks don't want to stay on him at night, but he can't sleep with really tight restrictive socks either. Has any of you ever come across a good skid resistant sock that tends to stay on the feet better at night? Thanks!

There's a great source for this -- footsmart -- they have all kinds of great socks, shoes, slippers, orthopedic accessories, velcro-strap shoes, etc. I used this catalog and their website quite a bit for my elderly dad when he was with us.

I should have typed silverts. They have a website and catalog of all such adaptive clothing. I don't know how to share a hyperlink. Sorry about the confusion.

1956Sherry, the booties sound like a perfect solution and I love the idea of outlining his foot in cardboard then taking it with you to the store for a good fit. Thanks for posting!

Those no skid socks will help him a lot..to break a hip!....OLD PEOPLE...slide along as they go...they do not lift there feet so much...they have a new boot type slipper...that have either wool or a soft inside...they come in all sizes...mostly for women...but men can wear them too...they come up to the shin bone...and they can be worn in the bed...in the winter I wear mine to bed..they have enough traction not to slip and enough slide to get along..things with to much traction can damage the ham strings..stopping suddenly..Think about these as an alternative to socks..they are not tight and they stay on all night...my home is cool all year...Just have him stand on a cardboard and draw around his foot...cut out the drawing..and slip it into a bottie at walmart...if the drawing fits in without Bending...YOU GOT HIS SIZE...they come in Black grey and brown..and different heights too...I LOVE MINE and have over 4 pair...GOOD LUCK..
