Hospital and Care Home Hairdressing Service
Caring Cuts is a hospital hairdressing service based in Welwyn Garden City. We offer this unique hairdressing service to residential care homes, nursing homes, care centres and hospitals.
The business owner, Bernadette Haughian trained and qualified as a hairdresser at Robert Fielding's of Regent Street back in 1983. She now has over 27 years experience in both ladies men's hairdressing.
After a break from hairdressing (while bringing up her children) she started working in the care industry.
Our Experience in Care Home Hairdressing
With a father in law suffering from Vascular Dementia and a mother in law who lived with her and had mental health problems, Bernadette already had experience in this area. She has also undergone training on dementia awareness, health and safety and moving and handing for dealing with this clientele. She then developed the understanding and patience required to deal with people in care and in the new business she did both hair and nails for patients and residents.
Her reputation in this field was gradually established and as a result new business started to be generated from direct recommendations. The current business was established in 2007 after the local hospital granted Caring Cuts a NHS Lease. We were originally known as as "Pinkaffair" but later re-branded to our new business name, "Caring Cuts".
Bernadette understands that old people need their voices to be heard. They need to be treated with dignity and all of her team have the caring attitude, patience and expertise required to work within this specialised hairdressing field. The team know that sometimes 100 year old Elsie may tell us she is going shopping with her mum but that is not a problem.
Our team are all NVQ qualified hairdressers. They have all completed the required dementia awareness and health and safety training. We also hold appropriate Public Liability insurance along with enhanced disclosure. Note that even when people are bed ridden we will find solutions and get the job done. This same service is also offered in residential homes
