Alium Adaptive Apparel was founded in 2017 to address the growing need for better functioning clothes for seniors and their caregivers. After hearing numerous stories from friends and family about how current clothing options limit the ability to give the best care to seniors in care settings such as assisted living, nursing homes, home care, and memory care communities, founder Carla Macklin set out to combine her knowledge of clothing design and production with the senior market to create garments that function better for seniors and their caregivers. Using advancements in flat seaming machines and a focus on the softest, high-performance fabrics, Alium creates garments that assist in minimizing skin abrasion, allow dignified access points for a caregiver to address issues such as incontinence and injury, and demonstrate through high-quality and stylish garments that the comfort of seniors is the top priority.
Alium Adaptive Apparel manufacturers soft, stretchy, and durable garments in the U.S.A. that hold up to the rigor of community use. Alternate openings have been constructed to assist the caregiver with donning and doffing garments while providing modesty to the wearer. Each garment is thoughtfully constructed to address a number of physical issues people face as they age.
