After thoroughly researching challenges facing the care of patients in a nursing home, Keep Your Wings was made to ease those challenges and improve everyday life. Three specific issues were tackled, all of which primarily aided the caregiver. In turn, the solutions benefited the patient as well. The color scheme is meant to be unexpected for the content, bringing life to what is normally a dull world.
Each patch containing the primary mark is a symbol awarded to a caregiver for stellar performance on the job. Bars along the side of the scrub jerseys are given to caregivers to show how many years of experience they have. The name is displayed on the front and back in a large size for patients’ visibility. The number represents which floor the caregiver is working on.
The Wing Bands are meant to serve as a reminder to caregivers that your job is to care for another human being and make his/her stay as accommodating as possible. Every time the caregiver feels overwhelmed or their patience is being tested, they can look at the band and count from ten. They will then refrain from any wrong doing and get back to work in a positive manner.
