Beauty Therapy for the Elderly

*Griswold Home Care does not offer hair-cutting or nail-care services, please consult your healthcare provider and discuss what local options are available to you

Who doesn’t love a fresh new look? A trendy haircut, a new hair color or a simple shampoo and set can do wonders for the spirit. A barber shop shave, mustache trim or beard sculpting can boost your self-esteem and make you feel like a new person.

Looking your best makes you feel better and will help you have a positive influence on those around you.

There are countless salon services for elderly men and women, including a variety of mobile beauty services for seniors. Check your local listings for a mobile beautician for elderly customers in your area. Simply call the number, make an appointment, and you can have your own beauty therapist at home.

If you enjoy getting out and going to the hairdressers for your beauty needs, find a salon for seniors that specializes in beauty services for the elderly.

You’ll get plenty of social interaction, and you’ll find stylists who focus on hair care, beauty treatments, nail care, and consultations for people who are looking for products and services that meet their needs as they age.

If you live in an independent living, assisted living, or nursing care facility, there is usually a beauty salon on site. Take advantage of it!

Ask the stylist’s advice about a new, low-maintenance hairstyle. Get a manicure, or try out a fresh, new lipstick color. Try something different and give yourself a boost.

If you have a loved one who suffers from dementia, there are nursing and beauty therapy services for the elderly that specialize in beauty treatments for those with declining mental health.

Dementia causes confusion, agitation and fear in many elderly people. Clinicians who specialize in beauty care services for individuals with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease know how to make most people relax and feel at ease.

They may begin with a hand or foot massage. They make eye contact with the person and speak in a gentle reassuring tone. A person with dementia must feel safe and calm before beginning any process. A knowledgeable stylist can make the beauty treatment relaxing and enjoyable.

Dignity and self-respect are important at any stage of life. Treat yourself or your loved one to a day of pampering and watch how quickly a beautiful smile appears in the mirror!
