Silvert’s Adaptive Clothing & Footwear  has worked with healthcare professionals for over 35 years to bring you clothing you need. Silvert’s has only become the largest supplier of specialty clothing by listening to their needs and responding to them. Silvert’s began as a department store and quickly grew into a chain of department stores. However, as Silvert’s customers began to age, their needs began to change as well. It became harder for customers to make it out to the department stores, so Silvert’s made the decision to come to them. Silvert’s began with mobile shows, bringing dressing wear into retirement communities, and soon expanded into an online website. This way Silvert’s clothing could be in every home. There was one added thing to the equation, seniors needed clothing that eased the struggle of dressing. Silvert’s responded by turning their brand into an adaptive clothing brand. This Silvert’s became Silvert’s Adaptive Clothing & Footwear, constantly working on finding dressing solutions for Independent dressing and assisted dressing.
