Gravesend Residents let Their Hair Down

There hasn’t been a bad hair day in sight at Edward Moore House Residential Care Home, since the hairdresser returned to work following the easing of restrictions.

With the hairdressers invited to return to work, with PPE and precautions in place, our residents are over the moon to be reunited with their stylists. There have been plenty of cuts, blow-dries and restyles, as residents have been lining up to have their turn in the hot seat.

And it isn’t just the ladies who are loving their new looks, as the gents have been enjoying a much deserved and long awaited freshen up too. The hairdresser has been rushed off her feet but is thrilled to be back at work and chatting to the residents once more.

Melanie Martin, Deputy Manager at Edward Moore House said: “Whilst things are still far from normal for us all, the hairdressers being able to get back to work brings a little bit of joy and familiarity for our residents, who have all been chuffed to bits to be able to visit the salon again.”

“We’ve done our best to keep life as normal as possible for our residents here at Edward Moore House, whilst also keeping them safe, and I’m really proud of the team and how they’ve pulled together – they’ve done such a great job over the past few difficult months!”

Question 2

Would you prefer to rent a bedsit within a small house or to buy or rent an apartment within a scheme?
