Renovated Hair Salon at Our Residential Care Home in Nottingham

 In Activities, Blog

At Newgate Lodge Care Home we have an in-house salon where residents can have their hair done in the comfortable surroundings of our residential care home. We recently renovated the salon to match the quality of the interiors throughout the home.

Care Home Hairdresser Visits

We have a local Nottingham hairdresser come to visit the care home every week to cut the ladies and gents hair. Due to Coronavirus restrictions the hairdresser was not able to visit for a while, so we took this opportunity to transform our hair salon and it has been completed just in time for hairdresser visits to resume.

In-House Hair Salon

The décor in the salon before was tired and basic, our maintenance team transformed the salon by adding vibrant wallpaper, new mirrors and accessories selected by our Home Manager Kerry. The result is a stylish and up to date hair salon for all of our residents to thoroughly enjoy. Each and every part of the décor was specially selected to cater to a variety of different tastes, giving a modern yet traditional look to the salon.

Self-Care Activities for The Elderly

When you look good you feel good, regardless of what age you are or what medical conditions you may have. Our Activities Co-Ordinator ensure that residents have good physical and mental wellbeing and this includes arranging pampering sessions such as painting residents’ nails alongside the weekly hairdresser visits to ensure that residents look and feel their best.

Being pampered is also a good social exercise for residents and staff to gather round and bond over their love for pampering and reminisce about their younger years.
