Everyone loves a nice pamper session. Having your hair done is one of the ways many of us like to relax.
So why should it be any different for our residents?
Rachelle Dainton, a resident at Bishopsmead Lodge Care Home in Bristol regularly welcomes her hairdresser Dianne Short into her home.
Rachelle said: “I love having my hair done. It makes me feel nice and fresh, plus it means I can have a good old natter with Dianne.”
Francaise Miles, Home Manager, said: “Just because you live in a care home doesn’t mean life has to stop. We strive to make our care home, a home from home for our residents. We try and do what we can to ensure life can continue as it did before they came to us. Little thing like welcoming Dianne, the hairdresser, has such a positive impact on Rachelle and the other residents; which encourages us to do more of it as we like to have happy residents.”
