When owner Josie Delgiglio spoke to the company's former owner, she wasn't primarily thinking of taking over the business. Instead she was interested in finding a clothing solution for her mother. “She became an amputee due to an infection in the hospital,” Josie says. “I found that trying to dress her in pants and make her look proper was a difficulty.”
Looking for the appropriate clothes turned out to be a lot harder than Josie thought it would be. But with her background in fashion design and technology, she was able to see the gap in adaptive clothing as a great opportunity to provide the public with products she wanted to see herself.
“I grew up in a senior facility,” she says. “My mother had a care facility and I saw the way people came to life when they came to stay with her.” That connection stayed with Josie and led her to Adaptive Comfort Clothing.
