There’s a bit of a doom feeling about Mother’s Day with limited things to do in lockdown this year, perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that Covid started showing its face in the UK exactly a year ago now and 12 months later, we’re still at the whole social-distancing thing.However, whether we can see our mums in person or not, Mother’s Day 2021 is a chance to celebrate everything she does for us and it turns out, there are plenty of ways to make her feel extra-special, no matter what your plans might be. So, we’ve decided to help keep your mum safe with the SOS Emergency label. Designed to be scanned using a phone camera to display a son and daughters contact details in a crisis situation. This will definitely bring her some much-needed cheer this Mothering Sunday (which btw is Sunday, 14 March, put it in your diary NOW).
Let Them Know You Care
Because there's no better feeling than coming home to a thoughtful letter in the post from someone close to you.
SOS Emergency Label
This label will display basic personal information, important medical information, and emergency contact numbers when scanned using a phone camera.
Part of your HOME Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).
The perfect gift for someone who lives on their own or is a carer for someone. A discrete and convenient way to communicate your medical conditions, allergies and emergency contact details. No need to worry how the emergency services can contact your next of kin in an emergency or crisis! No need to worry if the emergency services can access health information!
No need to search in phone books or trying to unlock mobile phone's!
The Emergency label is clearly marked with Emergency text and instructions so it will be noticed, especially if it is displayed on a fridge and inside the front door.
The simple answer is to scan the emergency sticker label using a mobile phone camera and your next of kin’s contact details or medical conditions will be displayed on the screen.
Designed to scan with an iPhone or Android phone camera
Hold your device so that the labels QR code appears in the viewfinder in the Camera App. Your device recognises the QR code and displays your emergency contact information.
Where To Stick
Our emergency scanning labels can be applied to prominent areas around the home. In the event of an emergency, it is critical the labels are clearly displayed so they can be scanned immediately.
For many ageing parents, continuing to live on their own is a sign of pride and independence. You want them to be able to age in their or your home as long as possible. At least now you know you can be contacted if an emergency happens.

Mother's Day is celebrated all around the world. It seems to be a universal thing that cultures put a day aside each year to celebrate the act of motherhood.
To pay tribute both to the miracle of birth and to the special woman who performed that miracle: your mother.
However not everywhere celebrates Mother's Day on the same 'Mothering Sunday' as the UK.
There are many different Mother's Day celebrations around the world, as the complicated table below makes clear!
The most common alternative date is the second Sunday in May. This is the American date.
Celebrate Mother's Day around the World, by sending a SOS Contact Label to allow the Emergency Services to contact YOU should a crisis occur.
