Are You Wanting to Add a Beauty Shop to Your Assisted Living Facility?

by Vincent Wallace

Whether you are the owner or the director of an assisted living facility, you are probably always wanting to make it a lovely and comfortable place for the residents. You probably already have craft days, bingo afternoons or evenings, special movie days, and other activities that will bring fun and diversity to the lives of individuals who live under your care. If you're thinking of adding a small beauty shop, here are some things that will help you accomplish that goal.

Find the Right Beauticians

Perhaps the people who live in the assisted care facility sometimes have limited funds. Consider finding beauticians who will not even charge for their services. Go to beauty shops and explain what you are doing and you will probably find volunteers who want to share their talent with the folks at your establishment. Another idea is to go to local beauty colleges and work out an arrangement where the students can earn credit toward their graduation by working on your residents. Additionally, a lot of cosmetology schools require their students to perform a certain amount of service hours.

Plan The Beauty Shop Area

You certainly don't need very much space. Divide the room you select into three basic areas.

  • One area can be set up with a simple table and two chairs for the individuals who want manicures. Don't forget to have a good light on the table. Local beauty supply stores may donate polish, remover, and the other things that are needed for a manicure.
  • If you're going to offer pedicures, you'll need a space for that. Of course, you will want to be sure that the health needs of your residents are being monitored. For example, if you have residents who are diabetic, foot care takes on a whole different approach.
  • The third area of the room needs to have a proper chair where the beauticians can easily work on hair cuts and sets. In addition, one of the most important purchases will be the shampoo bowls you select. Even though it may be a bit more expensive, consider selecting a shampoo bowl that is very flexible. Think of your residents who use wheel chairs. Choose one from a company like Wholesale Salon Equipment that can be raised, tilted or lowered and that is on wheels, so that it can roll to customers that can't come into the shop. Make sure that there is proper plumbing for the shampoo bowl. Can you imagine the delight of residents who are wheelchair bound who can now have their hair washed at an actual shampoo bowl?
