Clothing and getting dressed
When living with MND, getting dressed and undressed can be tiring, so easy fastenings are an important factor.
Some people feel the cold more with MND, while others can suddenly feel very hot. Wearing appropriate layers and types of material can help with temperature control.
In addition to comfort, most people also want their clothing to be presentable. As people with MND spend a good deal of time sitting, styles of clothing should be chosen with this in mind.
