On the show this week is Jimmy Zollo of Joe And Bella. Joe & Bella is the first contemporary adaptive-apparel brand for older adults. They make stylish, comfortable clothes that innovatively balance form and function, making dressing easier, stress-free, and more dignified.  

Joe & Bella is a “passion project” of a single-family whose all-too-common experience of caring and advocating for aging parents has led them to innovate and create the finest adaptive clothing for older adults. Though Joe & Bella’s beginnings are humble and relatively recent, their promise to improve the lives of older adults, their caregivers, and their families have catapulted their growth.

Jimmy and I discuss why adaptive clothing becomes more necessary as our population ages. Additionally, we discuss why living with age-related changes does not mean wearing clothes that don’t look or feel like you. What we wear is a part of our identity. 

You’ll enjoy this conversation. It’ll make you think and, more importantly, look at clothing differently.

After helping care for her grandmother who had vascular dementia, Jennifer realized her Mother was showing signs of early onset Alzheimer’s. After the death of her father in 2017 Jennifer went searching for answers to many of the common questions and Alzheimer’s caregiver faces. Being a busy entrepreneur Jennifer realized that a podcast would be the easiest way to learn more about caregiving while completing other tasks.

Sadly, in late 2017 she only found one and it didn’t quite address what she was looking for, so she did the next best thing, and started her own. The Fading Memories podcast is now in it’s fourth year and despite the death of her Mom in March 2020, Jennifer is still talking to caregivers and still learning how to be an excellent caregiver. On the podcast she discusses caregiving, brain health, self-care and how to age well.
