Why my grandma always wears a robe?
If you are older then that means that you have a lot of life experience and throughout life, you have tested a lot of things. One of those things is clothing. The Elderly had a lot of time to test what is the most comfortable, and also easy to put on while they are staying home.
Also, your grandma is most likely living with your grandpa or alone, so there are not a lot of visitors and other family members that they should dress up for. The elderly are retired which means that they don’t have to work, and get up at 6 AM every single day and then dress up for work.
A robe is often a substitute for a pajama because a pajama is not that easy to put on. After all, it often is separated into two parts and requires stretching to put on, but on the other hand, a robe is very easy to put on.
Your grandpa would like to wear something that is easy and fast to put on due to her lack of mobility, and the same goes for your grandpa. The older you get the more you have to be careful about your body.
