Are you struggling with buttons, zips, and other hard to fasten items? Are you looking for clothing that would help someone who has sensory and neurological issues? Are you finding it harder to be independent around the home?
More and more companies are launching universal lines to enable people to regain more independence, especially when it comes to clothing. Here are a few of our favourite brands for you to have a look at!
