Many patients with Alzheimer’s disease have difficulty getting dressed by themselves. This may be due to confusion or short attention span as well as to cognitive dysfunction or physical disability. Dressing is a complicated series of actions which includes clothing selection, undressing, and dressing, and must be done in a correct sequence in order to successfully complete the task. Both the caregiver’s and the patient’s response to dressing activities may have an effect on subsequent behaviors and moods during the day.
