Lifting spirits with care home pamper days

22nd April 2020

Residents across Care South’s homes have been having their spirits lifted with pamper days.

Many of the homes have their own on-site salons, allowing carers at Wickmeads care home in Tuckton, Dorset House and Elizabeth House in Poole, Talbot View in Bournemouth and Fremington Manor in Barnstaple to treat residents during the lockdown.

And one member of staff, it was a chance to live out a childhood dream. Lesley, activities organiser at Wickmeads, had dreamed of becoming a hairdresser as a child. She leapt at the chance to take over. Due to the restrictions on visitors to keep everyone safe, the usually guests who do haircuts and treatments have been unable to visit.
