Ideal Carehomes staff are looking and feeling smarter than ever following the launch of their brand new uniforms.
The new range of tunics, which come in a range of colours dependent on job role, was launched following feedback from staff.
Stacey Linn, Ideal Carehomes’ Director, said: “Our staff are really proud of where they work and want to look their best when representing their home, both to residents and visitors, and when out working in their local community.
“We listened to feedback and decided to introduce a different colour uniform for each job role. This way our residents and guests can easily identify staff, and understand their role quickly and easily. We also want our staff to feel comfortable when at work so we responded to requests for a more modern style with a lighter fabric, and the addition of two pockets. These may sound like subtle changes but they will make all the difference to our staff, and help them focus on doing what they do best – caring for our residents.”
The coloured tunics range includes black for senior care staff, grey for the care team, and purple for ancillary staff. The uniforms also carry the Ideal Carehomes logo and also have the home name proudly embroidered on the front.
Sarah Louise Lowden, who has worked at Newfield Lodge in Castleford since it opened back in 2012 and, won a £500 prize to mark the launch.
She said: “The new uniforms look fantastic and we’re all really proud of our new look. I was really shocked and overwhelmed to win the big prize because I have never won anything before. I plan to spend my winnings on Christmas presents for my family this year.”
