One of the most popular activities at the Manor House is our pamper sessions, and we ensure they appear regularly on our busy activities calendar. We have found that these sessions are welcomed by our residents and enhances the quality of their lives.
We are lucky to have an in-house salon, with a hairdresser visiting regularly to care for our residents’ hair. The salon allows residents to be pampered in a small group setting, creating a therapeutic atmosphere where chat and reminiscing take place. Manicures, pedicures and face masks are all popular choices. Dimmed lighting, soft music and lovely scents help create a luxurious atmosphere.
Facilities Manager Sophie says, “Residents love participating in pamper sessions and feel the benefits long after. Helping them feel extra special and seeing how happy it makes them is wonderful.”
The benefits of pamper sessions are not just physical; it also helps increase self-esteem and self-confidence. Residents love the opportunity to make their own choices and decisions, something we encourage as much as possible at the Manor House. Some residents have enjoyed selecting new nail colours whilst on a shopping trip, again giving them independence to make their own choices.
These sessions help prioritise our resident’s wellbeing, as well as boosting their confidence. We have pamper sessions planned over the coming months and can’t wait for the next one!
