Woodland House celebrate a milestone in curls, cuts and colour

Posted by cornwallcare on February 5, 2019

This week residents and staff from Woodland House celebrated 40 years of hairdressing with lovely hairdresser Kay Haynes.

Kay has supported our clients in looking their best throughout this momentous time. Over the years Kay has also supported our residents at Trevarna, Mountford and Redannick with their hairdressing needs.

Her loyalty and dedication to Woodland House was recently celebrated by us presenting her with some lovely flowers and a gift. We also enjoyed eating some delicious cakes which were baked by our friend Bert Keast.

Thank you so much Kay, you are a very special person to us all x

Benefits of hair care in dementia treatment

A good hair day not only affects how we look but also impacts on how we feel and a new study, led by the University of Stirling, highlights for the first time the benefits appearance-related support like hairdressing has in helping people living with dementia.

The Hair and Care Project, research conducted by Senior Lecturer in Dementia Studies Richard Ward, University of Stirling, and Sarah Campbell and Professor John Keady, University of Manchester, focuses on the role of hair care in dementia. The research found that hairdressing and hair care are integral to the everyday support that people with dementia receive as part of their care.
