Buttoning requires precise fine motor control. Someone with weak hands, or who has suffered from a stroke or has arthritis may have a hard time with buttons. Fortunately, a button hook can help. The device only requires one hand and can make you independent with dressing once again. They cost between $8-$20 depending on the make and model. They can be purchased through online sites such as Life Solutions Plus, Maxi aids, and Sammons Preston.
