Finding the right care home can take some time. If you have specific or complex care needs it can sometimes be difficult. Charities and organisations related to your specific disability might be able to offer advice about choosing a home.

Easy2name note that the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) inspects all registered homes and produce reports on what they find. Reading the reports on the homes you are considering might help you make a choice.

Minimum standards issued by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety state that care homes should offer trial stays.  If possible, you should visit residential care or nursing homes that you are considering, to make sure they meet your current and possible future needs.

You may have a checklist with you of points that are important to you in case you forget to ask something, which may include:

  • Is it accessible?
  • Is it safe?
  • Is there adequate room for my belongings?
  • Is appropriate equipment available – for example handrails, hoists, adjustable baths and armchairs?
  • Can I have my family and friends to visit/stay?
  • Can you keep your own doctor?
  • Can your food, hygiene and dietary needs be met?
  • Can your religious or cultural needs be met?

Easy2name can help you to make sure that when you move into your selected care home, that your belongings are safe. With our diverse range of labels and tags, which are easy and quick to use, everything that you take with you into the home can be labelled. You will be safe in the knowledge that whether the item needs washing or not, the labels and tags will remain in place.

Easy2name wish all year 6 pupils ‘Good luck’ with their SATS tests this week. Children can often feel nervous and even daunted, which is completely understandable. As a parent, it can be hard to know what to do or say to help.

Here are a few practical ideas on how parents and families can help children:

Give them these 6 Tips:

1.  Prepare all school things the night before so you don’t have to worry about organising themselves in the morning

2. Get a good night’s sleep – you could take a warm bath, have a milky drink before bed

3. Ensure that you have a good breakfast

4. Read the question before you attempt your answer

5. Attempt to answer all of the questions

6. In the morning, leave all of your worries behind you and ‘do your best!’

Easy2name are here to help you with labels, tags and stickers, for every occasion. Easy to use, durable and bespoke, we can supply exactly what suits you and your child.

Label It Smart:

Choosing Clothing Labels for Children

As we get ready to return to the new school term, parents are getting ready for “back to school” by planning and purchasing uniforms and athletic kit for the year. But who has the time to sew labels into children’s clothing?

Apparently Kate and Pippa Middleton’s Mom. According to a recent post in The Guardian “How Do You Label Your Children’s Clothes” Mom’s everywhere are struck with the task of not only sending their children to school with the appropriate uniform or kit, but ensuring that those articles actually return home.

Well, being a Mum of four boys makes me an expert on the topic, and the Easy2name business was set up in 2000 inspired by my own struggle to keep track of my children’s belongings. We make and dispatch labels every day for nursery, school, care home and craft use, we can even make labels with your own team or business logo as well. Continue reading »
