Caregiving is NOT a fashion show. Aim for professional, easy-to-move in and functional clothes.
Here are the six steps to picking an outfit:
- Make sure that your clothing is easy to wash.
- Don’t wear revealing or tight clothing.
- Make sure that your clothes don’t restrict your movement.
- Avoid hanging/grabbable jewelry.
- Wear comfortable shoes.
- Aim for a clean and casual look.
AVOID the following for clothing tops:
- No Low-cut tops that display cleavage
- No Off-shoulder tops or tube tops
- No Cropped mini tops
- No Graphic tees that feature profanity, politics, drugs/alcohol, violence, sexual or otherwise questionable content (Ex. Playboy, Hooters, etc.)
- No Tops with a lot of lace or elements that small children could grab and rip
- No Tops that would restrict movement, such as tight button-ups
A lot of the same rules apply for clothing bottoms. Here’s what you should avoid:
- No Tight skirts and dresses
- No Tight pants
- No Short shorts
- No Pajama pants (please no)
- No Baggy/ Holed/Ripped Sweatpants
