Isaac Robinson Court, a care home for people with Learning disabilities in Hull recently celebrated the opening of their new salon; ‘Pam’s Parlour’.
Pam’s Parlour is a very special place for both residents and staff at Isaac Robinson court, the salon is dedicated to the memory of resident Pam, who spend many happy years living at the home, during her time there, staff helped her to fulfil one of her dreams of visiting Hull Fair again, she loved her last visit to the fair, having had a fantastic time with friends and staff from the home. Pam was a very popular member of the Isaac Robinson Community, leaving staff and residents with many fond memories.
The money to create the salon was generously donated by Pam’s Sister Jackie, Jackie Bateman has been an active Board Member with HICA for the last 28 years. She is the Board partner for Activities, Wellbeing and Learning Disability Support and sits on the SHINE Committee.
Jackie wanted to do something special in memory of her sister and thought the Salon would be great both as a lasting memorial and a wonderful new amenity to be enjoyed by current residents
The Salon has been enjoyed by many residents since its opening but perhaps most of all by resident Sally. After falling in love with giving beauty treatments whilst at Hull College Sally set up ‘Sally’s Salon’ a mobile salon where she gave hand treatments such as nail treatments and hand massages.
Now she is looking forward to working at Pam’s parlour which has been custom made to create a wonderful experience for the homes residents. Sally first heard about beauty treatments whist doing a first Aid course, she saw the course on beauty treatments, and it all started from there. Sally says ‘I have always loved taking care of others and like to make them feel good’.
Pam’s Parlour is proving to be very popular and is a wonderful way to remember Pam, who spend many happy years living at the home.
