We are so excited to tell you that Holywell House, our newest care home, now boasts its very own hair salon – much to the delight of our residents!
Having an in-house salon means residents can enjoy a good old pamper or get their hair or nails done and even enjoy a body massage treatment relevant to their specific care needs too.
We have a salon at Cramlington House which continues to be hugely popular and beneficial to residents so we just know already the impact the new salon at Holywell House is going to have.
Ashley White, our manager at Holywell House, said: “The salon looks absolutely fabulous and we are thrilled with it as our residents. In fact, one resident, Cilla, has just had her hair done recently at the salon and it’s clear to see how much she appreciates it!
“Not only does the salon offer a chance to relax and unwind it always gives residents a taste of normality too as before they moved into Holywell House, but they would also have enjoyed going for a beauty treatment, to get their nails done or visit their hairdresser for a colour or cut.
“It’s amazing to have our very own salon as it’s not something many care homes can offer. It really helps residents settle in and feel at home. And if you’re ever feeling a bit off or having a bad day what’s better than a trip to the salon or beauticians to cheer you up? We’re looking forward to creating a lot of happy and relaxed residents (and wonderful hair) who leave the salon with a huge smile on their face feeling content with life.”
"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
