The role of beauty in nursing homes
Which professionals to rely on?
The pandemic has obliged the whole world to ponder over the importance of the elderly, and over the need to protect a generation steeped in wisdom and knowledge. This is the reason why – now more than ever – it has become critical to raise awareness on this topic in nursing homes, encouraging them to implement the beauty services which have the greatest therapeutic effect:
Hairstyling, manicure and pedicure
For hair care – including hairstyling and hair dying for women, and a nice regular and neat hair cut for men, rely on the skills of a hairdresser or a barber at least once a week. Manicure and pedicure, carried out by a beautician and a podiatrist respectively, combine the care of appearance with a nice nail varnish and the functional care of health, with the treatment of calluses which may cause pain and even trouble walking.
Face and body
For skin care, rely on a beautician who knows how to ensure good skin moisturising and, why not, who can also perform a light rejuvenating make-up. A massage therapist will be able to reactivate venous and lymphatic circulation through a specific massage, ensuring better tissue oxygenation and improving muscle tone.
