carewill encourages people who have difficulties with dressing. For people having such difficulties, a process of dressing is stressful rather than enjoyable.Most of them spend between 10 to 15 minutes by dressing themselves, or need help from another person such as a caregiver, and a family member. Dressing itself gives us a fulfilling life and makes us confident in general. However, it gives patients mentally pain. carewill solves this problem.
In addition, under the current coronavirus pandemic situation, assisting with dressing increases the infection risk between the supporting person (a nurse, caregiver, helper, etc.) and the wearer. A survey from nurses revealed that the function of shirts worn by patients may affect their motivation for rehabilitation.(Note1) We believe that carewill is a "medical garment" that reduces the risk of exposure to other people by supporting the wearer's independence in dressing.

“carewil” is a clothing brand developed by a dressmaker and her son that both felt uncomfortable with the clothes that his father was forced to wear in hospitals and care homes. We provide clothing that respects the wearer's will of self-selecting and self-dressing, and preserves their self-esteem.
carewill is developed based on the needs of wearers with physical disabilities and their families, and the expertise of doctors, nurses, caregivers, and clothing designers.
What we value most is to create clothes to fulfil the functional needs of medical staff and caretakers while making patients feel optimistic and excited to see others. Our product could be a gift from a patient's family and friend to their important ones along with get-well-soon wishes.
Our founding story: https://xn--y5qu63gelv.com/story-in-english/
By creating well-designed clothing and services, enhance fulfilling well-being for people requiring nursing care or having physical therapies.
- Easy to Wear, Ready to Go. -
carewill is designed to help people with physical disabilities especially shoulder injuries and elders who may experience difficulties with dressing themselves.EASY-TO-WEAR clothes with no zipper and less button, and wearable in one hand.
In addition, carewill pursues a design that is loved by both those who need care and those who do not.
Clothes provided in nursing homes and hospitals look cold and inorganic in appearance. As people usually feel the same, the founder of carewill and his mother had the same impression that these clothes make people who wear them extraordinary.
We believe that these clothes create a boundary between "everyday and extraordinary," and emphasize a difference between "home and outside(hospital etc.). This boundary has resulted in the inability to maintain the dignity of the person, loss of independence, and isolation of existence.
This is why carewill pursues designs that allow everyone to spend their daily lives comfortably, regardless of whether they are indoor, outdoor, disabled, or not.
