The power of touch is undeniable. Babies suffer from Failure to Thrive syndrome and so do our seniors when they are not touched. As a result of aging, often senior adults have fragile skin, hair and nail concerns which can be exacerbated by medical conditions, medications lack of proper care.

Recognizing the conditions of aging, knowing how to Respond appropriate to professional capabilities and knowing who to Refer to in the community- if necessary -is all part of the expertise in working with seniors. A sensitivity of their needs both emotionally and physically stimulates new light and vitality in each individual who is touched by a Beauty Becomes You volunteer.
