This January at HC-One’s Averill House
residential memory and nursing memory care home, in Manchester, Residents have been embracing their new hairstyles thanks to one wellbeing Colleague at the home.
Residents always admire Wellbeing Coordinator, Jodie Yates’ hair, as she normally has them in plaits or braids. They always comment on how neat it looks, so Jodie asked if they would like their hair done the same. And everyone was quick to jump at the chance!
Jodie said, “Well I wasn’t expecting the response I had! Residents queued up and waited patiently to have their hair styled in plaits or braids.”
Residents commented on how lovely it was afterwards and many asked if Jodie can do it for them again, as they liked having a different style.
Domestic Colleague Sarah Summerscales, added, “It looks really nice and the Residents are loving all the comments they’re getting!”
Jodie remarked, “Residents enjoyed having a new hairstyle and also that it was the same as mine. All enjoyed the compliments they got on the day!”
