Care recipient (cr) can no longer fasten or unfasten buttons on cuffs but doesn’t want to give up the look of button-down shirts and collars

Try: #cut buttons off cuffs #use elastic thread to re-sew the buttons back on and slip the buttons through the buttonholes #when the cr is ready to dress his or her arms can push through the cuffs without having to unbutton and re-button them the elastic thread should give enough for the hands to slip through

Materials: Needle scissors elastic thread caregiver who can sew
