Stress-Free Meals: How Washable Bibs Help Care for Elderly Parents

Facing our parents' aging can be difficult. The roles often reverse, with us worrying about their needs: medication, meals, exercise. It's a constant concern. What happens when they can't care for themselves? Nursing homes? Affordability? Living together? A new wave of worries.

For some, cultural or financial reasons lead them to care for elderly parents at home. While familiar and comforting, daily tasks like dressing and eating become harder as mobility declines. Spills and stained clothes can quickly turn mealtimes stressful for everyone.
