We are always looking for ways to enhance our residents' quality of living and often it is the simple pleasures in life that make all the difference.
The benefits to mind and wellbeing of a visit to the hair & beauty or grooming salon are well researched however the feasibility of such trips for many of our residents is impossible . To bring the benefits of this experience to our service users, we have established a partnership with a friendly and caring mobile hairdresser who is dedicated to making our residents feel pampered and valued in the comfort of their home setting.
Having hair styled and nails manicured is exactly the sort of thing that keeps our residents in touch with their individuality and identity.
Being able to continue to do something familiar, making style choices and maintaining their appearance improves well-being and sense of self worth.
"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on ours hearts, and we are never, ever the same" Flavia Weedn
Foot health has a fundamental link to health and wellbeing of individuals
Healthy, pain-free feet are important in maintaining mobility. Podiatry is a much valued service and for older people is pivotal in maintaining mobility. Our care team work in partnership with the chiropodist to ensure good foot health. Our residents benefit from regular foot spa treatments, including the options of weekly foot soaks in epsom salts.
Foot and lower limb problems are common and are a significant cause of ill health, pain and disability and can lead to impaired balance increasing the risk of falling. It is estimated that eighty per cent of older people have foot related problems
(Harvey et al., 1997)
Here at ELGINCARE we encourage the building of meaningful and supportive relationships between our residents and many of our clients have built lasting friendships that are mutually benficial. Often the pastime of choice is to simply sit in good company, with friends and acquaintances and chat.
Continuation of any hobbies/activities is promoted and representatives of all denominations are welcome. The local church choir and prayer group visit each month to provide a choral service and ensemble.
We encourage clients’ relatives or friends to accompany our residents on day trips out and visits to familiar and significant places because we believe that self identity is a cornerstone of happiness. It is important to many of our clients that the are able to remain involved with family, friends and ties to the community as a whole. There are 2 large lounges at the front of the house and a sunny dining room where friends and family are welcome to spend the day with their relatives. Or, if a more secluded or intimate space is preferred, visitors can be received in private bedrooms.
Deliveries of daily newspapers can be arranged and a local paper is always available. Clients may also arrange for their own private telephone line to be installed. The mobile library visits ELGINCARE on a monthly basis and we have a visiting clothing vendor and weekly visit from a musical entertainer.
