A garment worn hanging from the neck on the chest to protect clothing from spilled food is called a bib. Out of all people, seniors need it the most. Being old and weak, they don’t have the same force at their disposal which they once had. Therefore, it’s not only hard for them to feed themselves properly, but they also lack the ability to clean their mess up. This requires constant help from another individual. As far as the feeding process is concerned, people don’t show resentful feelings towards feeding adults. But nobody wants to wash dirty clothes of the elderly, especially when there’s a chance of them getting dirty again after every meal.
That’s where adult bibs come to the rescue of a senior citizen. To an old person, eating freely and without any worry of spilling food over their clothes can prove to be a mentally satisfying act. While it satisfies them, it serves its primary purpose of protecting their clothes. Adult bibs are easily washable. Therefore, it is too much of a risk to not wear one while eating. Besides, they are very easy to handle. All that needs to be done is to hang one over the neck, and yeah, that’s pretty much it.
Not only are adult bibs for the elderly, they can serve a lot of beneficial purposes for men and women of any age. While they find their foremost duty at the dinner table, they can be used pretty much everywhere. All you need to do is to improvise a little and I’m certain you’ll find ways to protect your clothes in every scenario possible. For example you can use them in your car. If you have to drink your coffee in your car, you can always wear a bib and enjoy your coffee to its fullest without having to worry about spilling some on you precious suit.
You may have begun to think that application of bibs is only limited to your culinary endeavors. But this is not the case. They find their use in medical activities too. In dentist offices, paper bibs are used to protect your clothing during procedures.
The adult bibs are available in washable and disposable styles. The standard sizes for the adult bibs are 18” by 30”, 18” by 34” as well as 18” by 36”. Many adult bib designers can make them in custom sizes. The bibs also have different closures which make it easy for the wearer to put on and take off. The types of closures are:
Snap closures: The snaps are located on the back flips which helps keep the bib secured. Some styles also come with 2 snaps that make better neck sizing. Although, these styles of bibs are not easy to pull off by the wearer – they are an easy option for the caregiver. The snap closure style bibs are only available in 2 neck sizes which might be difficult for the people with bigger necks.
Velcro closures: The Velcro closure bibs include Velcro strips on the back flaps to keep the bib safe and secure. The bibs can be easily worn and taken off by the wearer, but the Velcro strips collect lint and can lose adhesive after some time.
Tie Closures: The adult bibs that come with tie closures that the caregiver can tie on the back of the neck. The bibs are easily washable also.
Overall flap closure: The bibs can be easily worn by the wearer and include an overlapping flap.
The adult bibs are also available in different fabrics such as:
Terry cloth: One of the most common types of bibs is made from towel type material.
Flannel: The bibs are less absorbent than the terry cloth ones but are lightweight and come in a variety of patterns.
Plastic: The plastic material is not absorbent but can be easily wiped after each use to be reused.
Quilted: The quilted bibs come in many attractive colors / patterns and have quilted stitching.
Although, many feel awkward wearing bibs, but these come in handy especially for those patients who suffer from any sort of disabilities and want control as well as comfort when they eat or drink.
