The residents of Epsom-based care home Linden House have enjoyed some well-earned pampering after being reunited with their hairdressers.
During the lockdown periods of the last 12 months, the home’s usual hairdressers have been unable to visit. Despite this, unlike most of the population, the Linen House residents have still been able to enjoy regular trips to the salon.
The Epsom care home is lucky to have its own in-house salon, so residents do not have to go far. Thanks to this, the Linden House team have done a fantastic job in keeping hair and beauty treatments a part of weekly life. A good old chat, a wash, and a blowdry have gone a long way in enhancing wellbeing during visiting restrictions.
However, given the news that the hair professionals would be returning, appointments were soon snapped up! In the last week Janine and Rachael from J I Hairdressing, have set up in the Linden House Salon to treat residents to their first proper cut and colour in 12 months.
Jeanette, a resident of Linden House, said: “Having my hair done made me feel a lot happier and made me look younger.” Fellow resident Christine added: ” I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and liked what the hairdresser did.
Following her appointment with the hairdresser, Anne added: “I thought she did my hair very well and I felt better for having it look so nice.”
In line with current government guidance, hairdressers are now allowed to visit care homes following a dynamic risk assessment. With strict infection control procedures in place for the visiting professional, including a negative LFD test, residents can enjoy the pampering they have missed.
