Nail Cutting

Prama offer a Nail Cutting Service if you have poor mobility, poor eyesight, are a low risk diabetic or take an anticoagulant e.g. Warfarin.  Our Nail care workers are trained by the PCT Podiatry services department.  Your doctor or medical surgery will need to confirm that it is safe for us to cut your nails rather than a fully trained chiropodist, we will take care of that for you.

There is a fee of £17 to cut your toe nails or finger nails, discounts may apply for people in the same household and for additional nail cutting.  We will supply to you, at the first visit, your own set of clippers and nail file in a small case, the charge for these is £10.50.  We will only use the clippers provided by us. If you would like to have your nails cut with us, please get in touch by ringing Prama on 01202 207308.

Local areas covered are Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Blandford, Wimborne and Ferndown.

Love talking sport?

A new memory and discussion group for older sports fans will begin on Saturday 10th September in Parkstone.  The group is open to all older people who love sport but is designed to stimulate people who have memory loss and dementia.  Research shows that friendly discussion groups can help combat feelings of depression, loneliness and social isolation.  The group has been developed by Dorset charity Prama, Poole Well-Being Collaborative and Poole Social Prescription Service and will be using materials from the national Sporting Memories Foundation. 

Group organiser, Bridget Barrett of Prama commented; “Sporting Memories is designed to keep older people connected by tapping into their passion for sport.  The group is open to anyone over the age of 50 who loves sport, but the group will particularly focus on people living with memory problems or dementia to trigger long-held memories of watching or playing sport”.

People are welcome to attend alone or come along with a family member or carer and the group will also welcome volunteers who are interested in sport and want to join in.  The first group will take place on Saturday 10th September, 10am-midday and will then take place alternative Saturdays at Alderney Community Centre and Social Club, 287 Herbert Avenue, Parkstone, BH12.  Further information from Bridget Barrett on 01202 207300.
