I specialise in hand massage and manicure treatments for the elderly, particularly those with dementia and other medical conditions. I have over 14 years experience of working with such clients. I use an individually tailored treatment for each client, and adjust the length of the treatment and the pressure used for a massage, during the treatment, according to the individual's needs.
I offer various services from a simple cut, clean and file, or a file and polish, to a full manicure with hand/arm massage, or a deluxe manicure incorporating either hand reflexology or an aromatherapy massage.
I am happy to come to a nursing or care home to provide treatments for several residents, on a regular basis, if required. I hold a current CRB check, can provide references on request and am fully insured.
I currently visit several nursing and care homes regularly on a weekly or fortnightly basis, to provide regular manicure and hand/arm massage or aromatherapy massage treatments to residents. All the elderly people I treat really enjoy their sessions and look forward to the next one.
Connecting with those who find verbal communication difficult is challenging, but extremely rewarding, especially when they make it clear that they are happy and relaxed while being massaged or having their nails manicured. I frequently hear the word "lovely" from clients who don't normally say very much!

Aromatherapy Treatments for the Elderly
Aromatherapy massage treatments, particularly those containing lavender essential oil are calming, relaxing and extremely soothing and beneficial to those with dementia, who may be agitated or anxious. Many of my clients have suffered strokes and are confined to bed or in wheelchairs and many are frail and immobile, but all enjoy their aromatherapy massage treatments very much.
I tailor all massage treatments to suit each individual client's needs and use extremely gentle massage techniques to protect the integrity of their skin. Touch is very important to comfort and reassure people that they are safe and cared for. Often the only time elderly people are touched is with gloved hands. Massage can help to counteract some of the anxiety that is felt by elderly people and can reach clients who rarely respond because of their illness.
In my experience of working with patients with various types of dementia, including several who are agitated and sometimes aggressive, I have found that touch is a valuable tool to help to reduce stress and bring calm to difficult situations.

Manicure and massage treatments for the elderly are designed to make them feel pampered, relaxed and gives them some one to one attention. Let me provide some loving care for your relatives between your own visits!
