Residential Care Homes: A Small Thing That Makes A Big Difference
Name Labels In Nursing Homes & Residential Care Homes
Most of our name labels are used by parents to label their children’s school uniform and equipment BUT they’re also a valuable tool for people who are helping a friend or relative as they move into a nursing home or residential care facility.
While everyone involved will be doing their best to keep things as stress-free as possible, moving into a care home can be a worrying time and is often a sudden change that is done as a matter of urgency. While we can’t take away the stresses and worries of moving into a care home, you may find that our name labels can give some peace of mind when it comes to keeping your friend or relative’s personal possessions safe and secure.
Nursing and residential care homes are reliant on the use of shared rooms and facilities, which means it is all too easy for a resident’s belongings to be mixed up or accidentally left behind in a communal space. When items are lost in this way, it can cause great distress to residents (and their friends and family) and to members of staff, who will lose precious time trying to locate missing items – time that could be spent doing much more important things.
Name labels are a simple and easy to use solution; adding a label with a resident’s name (and room number) to their personal belongings makes it extremely easy to return items to their rightful owner. We supply TWO name label products, both of which are already used by a number of care facilities across the country:
STIKINS ® name labels; our most popular product, these multipurpose labels simply stick on and stay on and can be used to label clothing and fabric items, as well as personal items.
TRONS ® name transfers; these labels do require a bit more patience to apply but create a completely permanent name label on any fabric item.
We are happy to accept orders from residents themselves or friends/family members acting on their behalf (order anytime online via our website, give our Customer Service Team a call to order by phone (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm), or use one of our Leaflets to make a postal order) OR from care homes and residential care facilities who wish to order (in bulk) on behalf of their residents (please contact our Customer Service Team by phone or by email to receive a 15% discount).
