When it happens Beginning of moderate-stage dementia onward

Why it happens Brain changes impair the ability to weigh information and make decisions.

What you can do

  • Lay out a complete outfit.

  • Pare down the number of choices in the closet or drawers so as not to overwhelm.

  • Make sure to store outfits that are inappropriate (for the weather or the occasion) out of reach.

  • Don't worry if the same clothes are worn repeatedly, so long as they're clean.
