Caregiver Tips

Give A Manicure With Purpose(s)


Contributed By: Caregiver Mercy


Many of our residents take pride in their appearance and I do whatever I can to help them achieve those goals. For example, Residents Kitty, Kay and Diana like having their nails done...and being pampered. They typically choose nail polish colors to correspond with the season – brighter, more vibrant colors in spring/summer, darker and deeper pigments for autumn/winter. In addition to the ladies feeling good about themselves, there's lots of girl talk. Fun. Plus, I learn more about how they are feeling and look for changes in their well-being.

FYI: For our male residents, a hand massage is a great alternative.
