Generally speaking, double curtains are more suitable for the elderly. The thin gauze curtain of the inner layer can be drawn during the day to properly adjust the indoor brightness and prevent the elderly’s eyes from being stimulated by strong light.


The outer layer is made of cotton curtain, which has good air permeability and can ensure a certain warmth, especially at night, and can avoid the elderly from getting cold.
