One of the quality of life factors for all with intellectual or multiple disabilities is to have good clothing and footwear.

In many group homes, direct care staff consider clothing and footwear integrity is not their responsibility to repair or replace. Clothing and footwear can, therefore, become shabby and the person looking unkempt.

One answer is to have a “damaged clothing box” in each resident’s wardrobe, with an instruction to staff to place any items of ‘damaged’ clothing or footwear in the box, for the house manager to check each week and take the necessary action of repair at the local repair shop, or purchase replacements.
