From the Spa to the Salon: How We Pamper Our Senior Residents
"And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only
grows!" – Audrey Hepburn
Getting a fresh haircut, a manicure, or a relaxing massage can go a long way toward uplifting the mind, body, and soul. As we age, it is common to feel less worthy of these beautifying treatments, no longer taking care of ourselves in the same ways that we used to. That's why beauty care is especially important as we age, as it helps to remind seniors that they are beautiful--on the inside and out.
At our senior assisted living community here at Canyon Creek, we inspire our residents to age with grace and beauty, offering on-site beauty and relaxation services. How can you inspire your aging loved ones to feel beautiful inside and out? Read on to learn about the therapeutic benefits of senior beauty care, get tips for how to pamper your senior loved ones, and discover how we bring the spa to our seniors here at Canyon Creek!
Salon Services for Our Senior Residents
On-Site Beauty Salon
At Canyon Creek, we have an on-site salon located on the second floor of our senior living community, near our Activity Room. The salon is operated by Heather Dee, who offers a variety of services for both men and women. She does haircuts, hair styles, color, perms, pedicures, nails, waxing, and shaves.
She operates this full-service salon primarily by appointment, but does accept walk-ins. Heather’s assistant, Amy, helps in the salon because it is so popular with our residents. The residents LOVE going to the salon—take a look at Dora’s pink hair! So much fun.
Mini manicures are a beloved activity here at Canyon Creek, and are a time to be pampered and connect with friends. We host mini manicures as a part of our regularly-scheduled activities, and they are offered nearly every Wednesday morning. And, of course, residents can always schedule a manicure at the salon. Take a look at Joan’s hair and nails—Halloween-themed!
Our whirlpool spa provides relaxing and therapeutic relief for our residents and is often used as a part of rehabilitation for those individuals who have mobility issues or are recovering from surgery.
Massage for Seniors
In addition to our regularly-scheduled manicures, we also offer full-body and hand massages for our residents. Check out the times on our monthly activities calendar and come to the Activity Room to relax and unwind with a therapeutic massage. Learn more about the therapeutic benefits of massage for seniors on a blog we posted earlier this year.
Getting a new ‘do, a fresh color of polish on the nails, and a massage are all key components of a happy and healthy life, and should be indulged in as often as possible. Contact us with any questions you have, stop by to take a look at our amenities, and show all of your aging loved ones how beautiful they are inside and out! And, if you’d like to schedule a visit at our salon, non-residents are also accepted! Feel free to contact our Canyon Creek Senior Living beautician, Heather Dee, at 385-315-4605 for an appointment!
