New Resident Clothing Tips
Residents will be encouraged to wear their own street clothes, take part in recreational activities and therapeutic programming and to be up and about all day to the best of their abilities.
Clothing is required to be labeled, even if you choose not to use our laundry service. We recommend the Resident have at least seven days of clothing items on hand. The best way to identify clothing items is with: a sharpie laundry pen, no-iron clothing labels or printed iron on labels which are available to order online. Mark all clothing with first initial, last name or first name, last initial (example: J Smith; John S) near tag, or your full name if you prefer.
Here are suggestions that may make a resident’s stay more comfortable:
Day Wear: Shirts, dresses, pants, shorts, sweaters, sweatshirts and seasonal outerwear
Bedtime Wear: Pajamas, nightgown and robe.
Undergarments: Socks, underwear, t-shirts and bras.
Shoes: Laces or Velcro closures, if possible, with a non-slip flat sole. Slippers should have a fair amount of support and hard, flat, non-slip soles. Washable athletic shoes are also recommended.
