What makes the best care home uniform? It’s a question we’re often asked here at AWB Textiles, and something we have considerable experience in.
In our blog on the positive aspects of care home uniforms, we outlined the following points:
Why wear a uniform in a care home?
Nowadays there is a huge choice of care uniforms available to staff, enabling them to look stylish and feel comfortable at work without the starched, clinical look sometimes associated with a care home environment.
This communicates a more professional image and makes identification of care staff easier. With the latter point it is easy to use colour to identify each carer’s specialism (such as a dementia specialist) and/or level of seniority.
Uniforms also send a positive message about good infection control; while care clothing colours will often have a positive effect on residents. Having staff in bright uniforms only contributes positively to this.
Our best care home uniform
Easily our bestselling care home uniform is based around the Dickies Ladies mock wrap scrub top (pictured opposite).
The top comes with a contrasting trim colour giving it a stylish look at work, but yet still hard wearing and comfortable. It also features:
- 2 patch pockets
- Side vents and tie back for extra comfort
- Flattering fit with tie at back to give added shape
- Complete range of sizes and 11 stunning colours
Complete the look with the matching trousers: Dickies unisex drawstring trousers or Dickies ladies boot cut.
