A dignified green alternative to unnecessary clothing changes and laundering.
DinerWear™ even sent a couple samples to The Caregiver’s Voice to review.
We gave them to family caregivers in return for their review and a photo.
The caregivers loved them so much they didn’t want to soil them!
It took TheCaregiversVoice.com editor some time to persuade our caregivers to use their gifts so they could write reviews!3.8
Beth Hurzeler, Kathleen’s daughter and caregiver writes:
I normally put on a white terry cloth-type protector.
It’s just a matter of working with it and working with Mom to find a middle ground.
When I first opened the package and took a look at the Napkin, my thoughts were that it was too nice to soil. I’m over that.
With the length of it, Mom wanted to put the bottom part on the table and fold it up. This was a distraction until I tucked it on her lap, under the table, and pushed her even with the table, so she could no longer see it. The old, “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” is the best. I do like the length as it protects the pants area from spills, droppings, and what not.
To think how easy it is to simply toss one of these in the wash instead of struggling to change your loved one’s clothing. Just slip it off your loved one’s neck and toss it in the wash.
My aunt used a dozen clothing protectors for my late uncle with Parkinson’s. When he’d soil them while eating or drooling, she’d toss them in the wash. Instead of continually struggling to help him out of soiled clothes, he kept his dignity with clean clothes throughout the day.
Chris Dorlet, caregiver to her husband, Pierre, writes:
Thanks for the Dine with Dignity dinner-wear scarf.
It works great and really covers a lot of area.
I am attaching a photo.
I think anyone would wear this scarf in any situation and it doesn’t look like a bib or napkin.

Care communities such as assisted living, board and care, and even skilled nursing care homes will bring a touch of class to their diners while reducing unnecessary clothing changes and laundering. A green alternative that ultimately saves money!
Our loved ones with brain-impairing diseases and illnesses want to preserve their pride and dignity as long as possible. These scarves accomplish this with flair.
