Nail and hair care a favorite


At Deseret Health and Rehab, residents enjoy many activities. The Activity Department offers a wide variety of activities each week to meet the residents’ interests, as well as the physical, mental and psychological well-being of each resident.

It has often been said that the two most important activities at the facility are Hair Care and Nail Care. On Wednesday mornings, resident line up outside the Activity room for these activities.
