The ladies at Cramlington House often enjoy a good old pamper session every other Friday where they get to choose therapies of their choice and given the red-carpet treatment!
Whether it’s getting their hair done, their feet massaged, or getting their nails done, Angela and Kim from our care team ensure a small group of residents each Friday morning are treated to the ultimate pamper experience.
Angela Heighton, a care assistant at Cramlington House, said: “It’s not every day that you’ll come across a care home that has its own hairdressing salon complete with a pamper station so it really is wonderful to be able to offer this at Cramlington House.
“Every Friday morning, we ensure a small group of residents are treated to getting their hair done, or nails, and we find the effects hugely beneficial to their overall wellbeing.
“During the pamper session, residents natter among themselves and following it are visibly upbeat and relaxed for the rest of the day, ready to spend time with their loved ones who often visit over the weekend. It really is a fab way to start the weekend!”
The pamper session helps to boost overall wellbeing and it’s really nice to see how much the residents enjoy it and see their confidence and general happiness levels increase following a pamper session.
Olivia Harper, one of our residents who took part in last Friday’s pamper activity, said: “I used to get my hair and nails done every Friday when I was younger so I love to do this; it reminds me of my life when I was younger and makes me realise how, no matter how old you get, you don’t change. I always loved fresh hair and nails on a Friday and I always will!
“I enjoy catching up with the others too while we relax in the salon and enjoy the treatments given to us.”
"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."
