Stylin’ in Long Term Care
Residents in the long-term care facility in Happy ValleyGoose Bay now have another way to spruce up their day.
The local Kinsman and Kinettes club donated two barber chairs to the facility so residents can now get hairstyling done on site.
Charlotte Stronach with the Kinsman and Kinettes said there was definitely a need and they were glad to assist.
Stronach said her mother is a resident as the facility so she understands how this was an, especially in the winter.
“Every time she needed a haircut we had to take her out,” she said. “The residents here don’t have to go out now in the winter, they can get it done here. They’re all thrilled.”
Stronach said there was a salon in the building but it didn’t have the proper chairs. She said she spoke to a few local beauticians who said the chairs would not be comfortable for them, or for the residents.
So when the facility asked the club for assistance, they were happy to help. Stronach said she has been speaking to a few local stylists who have offered to come in and help. They are still looking for a few more to donate their time, she said, adding the stylists will be compensated for the work.
Members of the Kinsman and Kinettes were on hand for the presentation of the two barbers chairs to the Long Term Care facility in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
