Hair Care for Hospice
Pam’s involvement with Care Centers for the elderly, handicapped, and disabled is a true gift. She is a very talented hair dresser who can work in all types of environments and around all kinds of obstacles. The individuals absolutely love getting their hair done. Their faces light up every time Pam is there. The individuals are so pleased when they get that new look it gives them a boost of confidence and a source of independence. They always want to go out and show off their new “do’s” because they are happy with it. The individuals also ask Pam about hair products used on their hair and what they need to do to care for their hair. She does such a great job explaining it so they can understand.
It is a true blessing to have someone like Pam to be able to do in-home and facility visits. For many individuals because the wheel chairs make it more challenging to go to a salon and get the services that Pam provides when she comes to the home. She also donates her time and services for Hospice patients.
Many of Pam’s clients say she is one of the most selfless, compassionate, and genuine people they have had the honor of knowing. They truly believe Hospice Hair (her volunteered service for hospice patients) makes those last few months, weeks, even days better. She has dedicated much of her time and effort into going to homes, and for just one hour, making the people she takes care of feel very loved and cared for. This feeling of care is a different feeling than feeding or bathing them. She is making them feel beautiful. That feeling of beauty is an invaluable important gift. Pam truly loves what she does because she truly loves those she does it for.
Note: Pam’s Mobile Hair Salon provides free hair services to Hospice patients and $10 services for an in-home or facility visit. To reach Pam, or donate to her cause, call (801) 870-3139.
