How hair salons can make a big impact on the lives of senior citizens
Do you take the time to engage in meaningful ways with the elderly? If not, perhaps you should. You could make a real impact.
Consider this: Seniors who socialize with others have the opportunity to live a higher quality of life. There are a number of reasons why, but one of the most important is because studies have proven that regular social interaction leads to happier and more fulfilled lives, ultimately resulting in better long-term mental health for senior citizens.
There are also some important health benefits for seniors who spend time with others, including a potentially reduced risk of dementia, high blood pressure, arthritis and more.
A regular appointment with a hairstylist and a trip to the hair salon is just one way seniors can reap the benefits of regular social interactions.
And that’s just part of the reason why the team at Trixies Salon & Spa is so excited about our partnership with WesleyLife to bring three new locations to the area and help take care of local retired residents.
A meaningful partnership
Our mission has always gone deeper than simply offering haircuts and salon services. We are driven by a desire to truly care for people and want to build authentic relationships with our guests, who often become like family.
In fact, nothing motivates us more than being able to help and give back to those who need us. Our relationship with WesleyLife is the perfect way for us to do both.
And guess what?
Some studies show that maintaining a beauty routine as you age can have positive effects on mental health and can even be a viable form of care for people with dementia. What’s more, hair salons can serve as a micro-community, as well as a place for social gatherings.
We are thrilled to be able to provide standing appointments to pamper our guests at WesleyLife the only way we know how — by making sure each person who sits in our chairs knows just how beautiful they are, inside and out, for as long as we’re a piece of their lives.
