Beauty Therapist Volunteer
At Silk house we believe it is really important to support our patients who are living with Dementia. Service users on Silk ward are often in the end stages of dementia but can still benefit significantly from stimulating interaction, social engagement and happiness that can be gained from something as simple as a hand-massage or hairdressing treatment. We are looking for volunteer’s – even if it’s a few hours a week who can support us and the people who are living with Dementia in our care. The post holder would support inpatient service users and the Occupational Therapy team with carrying out self-care and pamper interventions such as hairdressing, hand massage and nail painting. This role directly supports service users in a very practical way to encourage motivation for self-care and to maintain previous levels of beauty care.
