Care Homes

Fixxon’s comfortable, robust name labels for care homes.

Name labels for care homesIdentifying residents’ individual garments is a big challenge in any care home. The Fixxon name labels for care homes button system helps to solve this issue, making labelling clothes easy and efficient.
Traditionally residents in care homes would have their clothes name labels put in by their families. However, the common methods of marker pen and iron on names wash off very quickly in a care home laundry and sew-on labels are very time consuming to attach.

The unique attachment and printing system (patent pending) is designed to be comfortable and discreet on all items of clothing. The name label buttons are able to withstand the extreme temperatures and chemicals encountered during the laundry process.

Most importantly, once in place the name label buttons are completely smooth and do not irritate the skin.

Ensuring that the correct clothes are returned to their rightful owners is extremely important for residents’ comfort and dignity. This is a primary concern for any family and well run care home. Using the right name labelling system also prevents unnecessary expense in replacement garment costs.

When new clothes are bought, the Fixxon buttons can simply be removed from the old ones and reattached. The Fixxon buttons are designed to last for years.
