Morale booster

Dave Blun­don, Clin­i­cal Nurse Man­ager for the fa­cil­ity, said this will be a huge help for res­i­dents.

Since the 71 res­i­dents all re­quire a fair bit of care and a lot have lim­ited mo­bil­ity, Blun­don said, be­ing able to have reg­u­lar hair­cuts will greatly im­pact their well­be­ing.

“This is go­ing to be phe­nom­e­nal for all the res­i­dents here. It’s go­ing to be a big morale booster for them, it’s go­ing to make them feel more in­de­pen­dent in what they can do and they can get things done when they want to get them done now,” he said.

He said since he started work­ing there two years ago he’s been ad­vo­cat­ing for get­ting the chairs for the fa­cil­ity. And he’s re­ally happy to have this goal ac­com­plished.
