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.

New creative project to support people living with dementia

People living with dementia and their close family members are invited to join a new free art and reminiscence project in Poole.

Mementos is a new group organised by Dorset charity Prama and Borough of Poole Arts Service and is open to people living with dementia and their family carers. A team of professional artists will work with the group and support them to share memories and use textiles, fabrics and photos to create beautiful and personal mementos.

Katrina Keeling from Prama said: “Caring for someone with memory loss can be stressful at times and it is so important to find activities you can enjoy together. The Mementos group is a chance to enjoy a relaxing and rewarding activity together, to learn new skills and make friends.”

Anna Shiels, Arts Programme Manager, Borough of Poole Arts Service, said: “Working with textiles can be really beneficial for people with dementia as it is such a tactile experience. The sessions will be relaxed and informal so everyone can work at their own pace and focus on what people enjoy and can achieve together.”

Mementos is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and is free to take part for people with dementia and their family carers. The group will meet on Thursday mornings at Cynthia Close in Poole. To book your place, or to find out more about taking part in the Mementos project, either as a participant or as a volunteer, please contact Anna Shiels on 01202 633971 or email
