Pretty nails brighten residents’ day

September 23rd, 2019

Many ladies find that pretty nail polish can brighten any day. The unexpected flash of colour and smooth finish has a way of catching the wearer’s eye all day long. These ladies at Points West Living Slave Lake were no exception when they got their nails done recently.

“Giving residents fresh nail polish can change their mood, and give them the feeling that we treat them special,” says recreation coordinator Mailyn Fornoles, adding, “A manicure can actually help reduce anxiety and improve your mental health!”
