Our residents are beautiful! Through conversations with them and their families, we are in awe at the experiences they've had and their optimism about life. One of the best parts of working with senior citizens is learning about how life used to be when they were growing up, the things they value, and what brings them joy. Any time we reminisce on their lives, without a doubt, they each get a twinkle in their eye and that beauty surpasses anything.
Not only are our residents beautiful on the inside, but their pure beauty shows on the outside. Throughout the day we will see our residents walking up and down the halls getting their exercise and occasionally we will see them come down for an appointment at the beauty salon.
Here at Summerfield, we have a beauty salon on site where residents come regularly to get their hair done. We have two beauticians who wash, cut, curl hair, etc etc. Many also come down for a nice and relaxing manicure or pedicure. Our resident's love the option of having someone available in our community to help them accentuate their beauty. All they have to do is call to make an appointment.
"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."
