Dear all I feel sure someone out there has had this problem. Mum has been in a care home for eight months. When she went into the home we had to buy mum new clothes to cope with the frequent high temperature washes, etc. All clothes have to be labelled. We have got into the routine and doing this ourselves when we buy anything new. This means that we do not have to wait for the laundry to do it. However, our problem is that mum's clothes go missing. This is for a variety of reasons. They are put in the wrong room, other residents take them, etc. In the recent past we have had two single slippers go missing from two different pairs. So far one has turned up and we had to resort to buying a new pair. We have recently had to report two cardigans and two pairs of trousers going missing. So far they have found the trousers and one of the cardigans. The trousers had to be relabelled. I have had to resort to keeping a photographic record of her clothes. Looking after mum's clothes has become a job in itself. A friend recently told me that she has to replace her mothers clothes on a regular basis due to the washing regime. Any thoughts?
