How Are Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Seniors Different?

Often, compression socks for seniors are boring, translucent stockings with an off-putting medical look and feel to them. At Nurse Yard, we married style with function to create compression socks that are not only a pleasure to wear but also have a fun and sporty look. 

Available in an array of colors and prints, our compression socks for seniors are also durable and innovatively designed. Starting with a cushioned ankle and supported arch, we protect and support your foot, so each step feels more comfortable. Next, we added a no-slip cuff so you won’t waste time adjusting them—once you put them on, they stay in place. 

We make our compression socks for seniors with a wave-knit pattern that provides graduated pressure along the length of your calf. Whether you struggle with fluid retention or muscle fatigue, we’ve got you covered.

The best part? These are easy on compression socks for elderly, meaning it won’t be a struggle to get them on.

Risk Free 60 Day Guarantee

We proudly stand behind our product, which is why we offer a lengthy guarantee.

If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, return it within 60 days of your purchase for a full refund.

20-30 mmHg of graduated pressure. The perfect balance of compression... Not too tight, yet not loose! The ideal amount of support.

Fabric & Care

Our socks are made of 80% Nylon + 20% Spandex. Recommended to air dry to prevent shrinkage and for a longer lasting sock. Wash cold. No fabric softener.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Compression Socks Do For Elderly Persons?

As people age, their stamina decreases, and it becomes more difficult to stand or walk for long periods. You may become more prone to conditions that cause blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, poor blood circulation, or swelling. 

Nurse Yard’s graduated compression socks for seniors address each of these concerns by: 

  • Improving circulating and blood flow
  • Supporting muscles, joints, and connective tissue
  • Alleviating muscle-related soreness or pain
  • Preventing blood clots and fluid retention

These benefits can improve your elderly loved one’s quality of life by enabling them to continue doing things they enjoy and retain more of their independence. 

What Is the Design of a Nurse Yard Compression Sock?

While other senior compression socks have one or two enhanced features, Nurse Yard’s design offers multifaceted support focused on effectiveness, wearability, and—above all else—comfort.  

These features include:

  • Looser in the toes for air circulation
  • Support in the arches
  • Cushioned ankles
  • Wave-knit design for graduated compression
  • No-slip knitted cuff, so they never fall down

What Size Compression Sock Should I Get?

Wearing correctly sized compression socks helps ensure they work properly and stay in place. To find your size, measure the circumference of your calf muscle with a flexible measuring tape. Compare that number and your usual shoe size to our sizing chart to find which compression sock is the best fit for you. 

For instance, if your calf measures 8 inches and you wear a size 7 women’s shoe, our S/M women’s compression sock should fit you perfectly. 

Since our sizing chart is flexible, you may end up falling between sizes. Our socks are roomy in the toes, so if you prefer your socks to be snug in the foot, choose the smaller size.

Does Nurse Yard Have Different Colors & Sizes of Compression Socks for Seniors?

Nurse Yard’s compression socks for seniors come in an array of sizes to fit almost every foot, including men’s and women’s sizes from S/M to XXXL. 

Since we believe style and comfort are equally important, our compression socks also come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Our CORE series, which is available year-round, includes the following styles:

  • Black: black with gray design
  • White: white and gray with light gray toe and heel
  • Blue: blue and gray with white toe and heel
  • Green: green with gray design
  • Orange: orange and gray with black toe and heel
  • Pink: pink and gray with white toe and heel

Our limited-time HERO series features science and medicine-related designs, including: 

  • Scrub Life: white with blue details and teal scrubs print
  • DNA: yellow with multicolored DNA strand print
  • Ambulance: teal with white ambulance print, orange toe, and heel

Each style is available in every size.

How Tight Do Compression Socks Get?

Nurse Yard’s compression socks for seniors provide just enough pressure to improve circulation and stay in place without hurting the skin or disrupting blood flow. They fit snugly around the ankle with 30mmHg of firm, cushioned compression, then loosen slightly to 25mmHg of medium pressure around the calf and shin. The cuff provides 20mmHg of light compression right below the knee. 

Graduated pressure helps your compression socks work more efficiently to improve circulation and prevent fluid retention so you can stay comfortable all day.

Where does Nurse Yard ship from?

All Nurse Yard compression socks are shipped via USPS from our central warehouse in Phoenix, AZ. 

How long will Nurse Yard shipping take?

Once submitted, your order should arrive within 3 to 5 business days. In cases of severe weather and other extenuating circumstances, shipping may take up to 11 business days. 

If your shipment is delayed, we’ll alert you with an update as soon as possible.

Benefits of Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Seniors

When it comes to aging gracefully, compression socks for seniors provide a wide array of benefits. Cushioned ankles and a no-slip cuff help support the joints, while comfortable graduated pressure supports the muscles and connective tissue. A roomy, breathable foot helps prevent chafing, while light arch support comforts the instep.

Leg pain

The advance compression socks are the best. My leg pain disappears while I am wearing them. My only negative is wearing them on really hot weather, I give Nurse Yard a big thumbs up!

We understand that they may not be the most comfortable in hot weather, but we appreciate your support and are happy to have Nurse Yard's approval. Take care!

Jean Goble
Original single color compression socks

Love the way these socks make my legs feel while I am wearing them. My legs continue to feel good when I take them off and go to sleep. My legs are so much less “restless” while sleeping when I have worn these socks while I was awake and active.

Hi Jean,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Original Solid Compression Socks. We're happy to hear that you love how they make your legs feel while wearing them. We're even more delighted to know that your legs continue to feel good even after taking them off and going to sleep. That's great news! We're glad our socks have helped with your 'restless' legs while sleeping. Thank you for choosing our product and we hope to continue providing you with excellent support and comfort. Have a great day!

Robin Woolard
Great Socks

I have been looking for compression socks and really liked your ad on Facebook. Two things I really love about the socks are the size and the color. I have big calves and most compression socks are too small for me. The sizing on the socks is great so I was able to get a perfect fit. They look like dress socks which is also great. That way it is not obvious that I have on compression socks. My legs feel supported due to the compression and it really helps my lower leg swelling and the resulting pain and soreness that accompanies swelling. I would definitely recommend the socks!!

Hi Robin!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We're so glad to hear that our Original Solid Compression Socks have been a great fit for you. We understand how frustrating it can be to find compression socks that accommodate larger calves, and we're happy to hear that our sizing worked well for you. We're also thrilled that you appreciate the dress sock look - we designed them with that in mind! We're happy to know that our socks are providing you with the necessary support and helping with your swelling and pain. Thank you for recommending our product, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you ever need anything else.

Cheers to happy and healthy legs!

Comfy and plushy support

These are very soft and comfortable, more so than I was expecting. I have another pair from online retailers that I had to do extensive research to ensure they were properly the right compression, much less comfortable than Nurse Yard. Nurse Yard provides cute support for a very good price. Customer service team is fantastic!

Hi Leslie! We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying our Best Nurse Compression Socks. We pride ourselves on providing both comfort and support, so we're glad we exceeded your expectations. Our team is always happy to assist with any questions or concerns, so please don't hesitate to reach out in the future. Thank you for choosing Nurse Yard!

Emily Van Engen

They’re comfortable. They actually fit around my calves and stay up for multiple hours! No pulling these back up in the middle of the day. I wish there were prints for teachers or more prints like this one, although I know this site is targeted to our sweet nurses out there.

Hi Emily,

We're delighted to hear that our Nurse Yard compression socks are comfortable and stay up well for you throughout the day! Your feedback about the prints is valuable to us, and we appreciate your suggestion for more variety, including prints for teachers. While our primary focus is on providing support for healthcare professionals, we'll certainly take your feedback into consideration for future designs. Thank you for sharing your experience.

Hi Margaret,
