the residents want to have name badges have you any ideas re making them or any designs

Hi Ann, some stationary suppliers have magnetic name badges which have a plastic cover and attach to clothing with magnets, this eliminates the use of pins. You slide a card into the plastic cover, 90 x 60mm, perhaps you can print the resident's name on the card and get them to decorate it. If this is too small or you want something fancier, have a look on for paper medallion rosettes. If you attach one end of a piece of ribbon to the rosette and the other end to a small bulldog clip, the clip should clip the rosette onto clothing. Hope this helps.

Thanks Meredith

I gave some samples of font types, sizes and layouts to our elders to choose from and the most popular one was one that I could print onto a template and then cut and fit into plastic covers that had clips attached. It had the elders first and surname shown in bold large font with our facility's logo in one corner and then our address listed at the bottom. As it was a suggestion from our elders I also submitted it as a Continuous Improvement in to our facilitys admin. Many did wear the tag initially but most now need reminding to wear them!:)
