We combine our health industry expertise with our caring, friendly customer service.
Who we are
Just over six years ago Steve was assisting one of the elderly residents to get dressed at an Aged Care facility. He had been helping residents with dressing for years and observed that when people had the right clothing it was much easier and more comfortable for them.
Steve also fielded many questions from families about what clothes they should buy for their loved ones. Families often told him that it could be quite difficult and stressful to get it right.
And so came his first idea... why not bring the clothing to the residents so that they could choose their own clothing independently or with assistance from family or staff?
What we do
Senior Style now stocks a range of men's and women's elderly clothing including tops, trousers, underwear, sleepwear, knitwear, footwear and adjustable slippers -which are good slippers for the elderly. Choosing slippers for elderly to prevent falls is also an important consideration when shopping for a loved one.
Senior Style has recently expanded to include aged care activity resources, dementia resources, dementia aids, books for dementia caregivers, seniors puzzles and gifts for grandparents, great grandparents and elderly loved ones.
Steve has facilitated over 1800 clothing shows at Residential Care Facilities and Retirement Villages around Victoria. Residents benefit from having the independence to choose their clothes resulting in increased self-esteem and feeling like an individual.
Here is Steve in action.
