Vanity Hair – Highlight Of The Week For Homebound Seniors

Most assisted living facilities and nursing homes offer services for getting a shave, cut, wash and blow dry for their residents. But what if seniors living at home are finding it increasingly difficult and exhausting to wash their own hair? Why not talk it over with an elderly relative or friend and offer to arrange a weekly visit to a local hair salon or barber shop?

Seniors living alone at home rely heavily on routine to give structure to their everyday activities, but as they lose the independence of driving and physical ailments prevent them from doing certain hobbies such as gardening or cooking, they may find themselves staring out a window all day instead. Mental and physical activity, socializing and interaction with others are such important factors in keeping up morale and healthy living. There should be more to life than looking forward to, (or dreading) going to regularly scheduled doctor appointments.

Depending on your area, you might want to call around to see if any salons or barbers specialize in senior citizen services and/or offer senior discounts on certain days. If driving themselves to the appointment is not an option and there aren’t any family members or friends available to drive, you could research senior transportation services offered by most communities, arrange a pick up, and drop off for a weekly trip to the hairdresser. It might not be for everyone, but for some, it could very well be the highlight of their week!
