Across the UK, busy care home staff spend over 6,000 hours a week rummaging through lost property and residents’ rooms looking for mislaid clothing. That’s a lot of hours spent on this fruitless task! With this in mind, one company has identified a quick, easy, and cost-effective solution to labelling residents’ clothing. Snappy Tags ® are discreet and resemble small buttons, making them comfortable and unobtrusive to the wearer. Care Homes who have implemented Snappy Tags® agree:
Robert York, CEO of Nazareth Care Charitable Trust, said: “I was so impressed when I first saw Snappy Tags that I bought them for my own mother, who is a resident in one of our Houses. We have never had an issue with Snappy Tags falling off in the laundry and I am very happy to recommend them to families of residents in all our locations”.
The team at Snappy Tags laser-etch either names or room numbers into the tag, ensuring that they will never fade, even in harsh industrial laundry conditions. Tags are simply snapped onto the laundry label or garment seam using the applicator. The brilliant thing about this product is that they are re-usable and they can be re-applied to a new item of clothing quickly and easily. Dale-Jaimé Matthews from St Cloud Care also said: “Snappy Tags has made it so much easier to keep track of all of our residents’ clothing….everything else we have tried has failed….The little tags have given back hours of time to our laundry staff and have provided peace of mind with the residents and their families for their items of clothing”.
