At Tangles Salon, we understand that visiting a salon can be an overwhelming experience for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. Our mission is to provide a sanctuary where they can feel safe, comfortable, and valued. We believe that everyone deserves a space where they can relax and enjoy a pampering experience, regardless of their cognitive challenges.

Tailored Environment

Our salon is designed with the specific needs of Alzheimer’s patients in mind. From the moment clients walk through our doors, they are greeted with a calming and welcoming atmosphere. We use soft lighting and soothing colors to create a tranquil environment that reduces anxiety and confusion. The layout of the salon is simple and easy to navigate, minimizing the risk of disorientation.

Specialized Training

Our staff undergoes specialized training to understand the unique needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s. They are skilled in communicating effectively and compassionately, ensuring that every client feels understood and respected. We prioritize patience and empathy in our interactions, allowing clients to move at their own pace and making sure they feel in control of their experience.

Personalized Services

At Tangles Salon, we offer personalized services tailored to the preferences and comfort levels of our clients. Before any treatment, we take the time to understand their likes, dislikes, and any specific concerns they might have. This ensures that each visit is a positive and enjoyable experience. Whether it’s a gentle haircut, a soothing scalp massage, or a simple nail trim, our services are adapted to meet the individual needs of each client.

Familiar Routines

Consistency is key for individuals with Alzheimer’s. We strive to maintain familiar routines during their visits to help reduce stress and promote a sense of security. Clients are often paired with the same stylist for each appointment, allowing them to build a trusting relationship. This continuity helps in creating a sense of familiarity and comfort, making each visit something to look forward to rather than a source of anxiety.

Family Involvement

We encourage family members to be involved in the salon experience. Whether they accompany their loved ones during their appointments or provide input on their care preferences, their involvement is crucial. We believe that collaboration with family members enhances the overall experience and ensures that we are providing the best possible care.

Sensory Considerations

We are mindful of sensory sensitivities that many individuals with Alzheimer’s may have. Our salon minimizes loud noises and avoids strong scents, creating a serene environment that is gentle on the senses. We also use products that are hypoallergenic and free from harsh chemicals to ensure the comfort and safety of our clients.

Promoting Dignity and Independence

At Tangles Salon, we are committed to promoting the dignity and independence of our clients. We understand that personal grooming is an important aspect of self-esteem and identity. By providing a supportive environment and personalized care, we help our clients feel good about themselves, boosting their confidence and overall well-being.

Community and Connection

Beyond providing exceptional salon services, we aim to create a community where individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families feel connected and supported. We regularly host events and support groups, offering a space where clients and their loved ones can share experiences, gain support, and build meaningful connections.
