A garment for supporting the disabled or paralyzed arm of a wearer. The garment has a fabric member with an open bottom, a head opening in its top, and a pair of arm holes, which allow it to be worn like a standard shirt or vest. An arm support pocket is positioned on the front of the garment. The arm support pocket is a sleeve in which the disabled arm is placed to be retained and supported. A utility pocket is also preferably positioned near the bottom of the garment. The utility pocket is preferably divided to keep items in the pocket from migrating to locations where they may be difficult to retrieve. The garment may also have an openable and closeable seam in the back to facilitate dressing and undressing by the wearer.
