Stylin’ in Long Term Care

The Labradorian - - Front Page - BY EVAN CA­REEN

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.
