Outward appearance is often a way to demonstrate and maintain identity. Using a hairdresser or barber is a normal and enjoyable activity for most people. Residents at the Care Home should be encouraged to have an interest in their appearance and use the hairdressing facility if they wish. A designated salon in the Care Home is allocated on the ground floor for the purpose of providing resident hairdressing services. Manager's have arrange the services of two suitably experienced hairdresser's that attend the Care Home on a weekly basis, one visiting on a Tuesday and the other on a Thursday, the prices are set between both hairdresses and this is normally paid through our care management system so that we have an audit trail on all monies. The hairdresser's have provided multiple professional references of previous employment, this show their hairdressing experience & competency. The hairdresser's have had a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check if the Care Home is in England or Wales.
