Looking Good & Feeling Better
The effects of illness and treatment
Our Headstart and Beauty Therapy services are designed to help Living Well patients to cope with the effects of illness and treatment on hair, skin and appearance. We can help our patients to rebuild their confidence and feel good about themselves again.
Our 'Headstart' service helps patients to cope with hair loss. A specialist nurse is available by appointment to advise on hair care and related problems.
We can help our patients by:
- pointing out useful websites and other sources of information
- showing them how to wear scarves, hats and hairpieces
- giving advice on the purchase of scarves, hats and hairpieces.
Patients may choose to buy from the stock we display here or browse our catalogues and select from a wider range of scarves, hats, turbans and buffs.
"It was lovely to be pampered"
A 'drop-in' beauty therapy service is on offer to all Living Well patients. Patients can enjoy manicures, pedicures and eyebrow shaping. These sessions take place in an area next to the communal lounge area and do not need to be booked in advance.
