We have a visiting hairdresser during the week. She provides a quality hairdressing service at a reasonable cost. You can, of course, visit a salon outside the Home if you wish, or a hairdresser of your choice can use the Home’s facilities.
It is the right of every service user to continue to observe her faith. Services for a range of faiths are held at the Home and we will always endeavour to arrange for a representative of your religion to visit the Home or if possible for you to attend a place of your particular worship, should you so wish.

There is no restriction on pets visiting the Home unless a specific pet is likely to adversely affect the health, safety or personal rights of other service users or members of staff. Visits must be discussed with the Manager before they are undertaken. Due to the nature of illness of service users at St Brelades beloved pets cannot be admitted to St Brelades to stay.
