Helping Clients to Dress and Undress After Stroke
Shirts, Blouses, Pants, Undergarments

  • The general rule is to dress the affected (weak) side first.
  • To undress, take the garment off the unaffected (strong) side first, then remove it from the affected (weak) side.
  • When you are helping someone dress, always tell them what you are doing first so they know what to expect.
