StashAll: Stylish Accessories For The Physically Challenged

Red StashAll shoulder bag with accessories

Description: The StashAll has been designed as a high-end fashionable accessory for fun day trips or a more sophisticated night out. It features pockets/sections that allow the owner or a caregiver to easily locate a commonly grabbed item, like glasses or credit cards. It is lined in a high-quality, attractive fabric and provides optional, coordinating accessories, like a glasses case, cell phone case with neck strap, credit card case and discreet pouch for briefs that can be taken to the restroom. When StashAll creator Mary Tennyson’s 92-year-old mother wanted to attend the Ballet or do lunch, she always had a hard time pushing her walker and managing her purse at the same time. This need lead Mary to create The StashAll, an attractive bag that attached to the walker and would also fold up with the walker when it came time to put it in the car or set it aside once seated. The StashAll was born out of an important personal need, but has been tested by other seniors and caregivers alike who gave important feedback in the research and development process. The StashAll also comes in handsome styles for men who face the same problems and a version with a shoulder strap that can also be used by caregivers when not attached to the walker.
