Name Labels For Residential Care

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Moving into residential care can be stressful for relatives as well as the person involved, and often there is little time to plan. One of the many things that need to be done is adding name labels to all clothing and personal possessions, so that they do not get mixed up with those belonging to other residents.

There are several name labelling options including sew-in labels, iron-on labels and now there are stick in labels, called Stikins. Sew-in labels are the best and will also be the most durable, the problem is that there is a lot of work involved in sewing them in, and then continuing to sew in labels if new clothes are acquired. Iron-on labels can be good, but some are better than others. They are certainly faster to apply than the sew-in labels.

If you choose sew-in or iron-on labels you will need to order additional labels for shoes and personal items.

Stikins have been used in care homes since 2004. These new name labels simply stick onto the wash care label of garments and can also be used for other personal possessions including shoes. The ease of application is especially important because relatives have limited time to do the labelling, also residents themselves or their care assistants can easily stick the labels on.

Whichever name label type you choose, fast delivery is essential so check that the labels can be supplied in time; some companies do not make the labels themselves and  you may have to wait a couple of weeks for delivery.
