COVID 19 INFORMATION
Through vaccination and strict infection control measures, both our homes are free from Covid-19. The safety of our residents, staff, and visitors remains our priority therefore we have maintained a range of measures to keep our people healthy.
INFECTION CONTROL MEASURES
Staff and residents get tested weekly
Visitors must take a lateral flow test upon entering our homes
All staff and visitors have their temperatures checked
Adequate supply of necessary PPE
Multiple hand sanitising stations throughout our homes
Safe Admissions Wing
Enhanced cleaning procedures
Social distancing measures
We are delighted to be able to welcome back residents’ families and friends, and to resume offering a busy calendar of events. Although Government restrictions have been lifted, we kindly ask all visitors to do a lateral flow test when entering our premises, and to wear appropriate PPE which we are happy to supply. Residents can have up to two visitors at a time in their suite. If there are more, we ask they meet in our lovely dining area where social distancing can be applied.
We’re still offering support to our residents so they can make full use of digital technologies to keep in touch with their loved ones.
We are following all Government guidelines and currently offering all residents and staff their third Covid-19 vaccine and flu shots.
We are safely welcoming new residents. All new residents must produce a negative Covid-19 PCR test. They will move into a safe admission suite where they will stay for 14 days. These suites have en-suite bathrooms, WIFI, TV and all the other amenities available to the rest of the home. On the final day of isolation, a lateral flow test is performed.
The isolation period for new residents can be reduced to 10 days if the following criteria are met:
- The resident has a swab for covid-19 within a 48 hour of admission with a negative result
- There is confirmation from a medical professional that a resident has been isolated for a minimum seven-day period whilst in hospital
- A second PCR test is done three days after admission, and it is negative.
Please get in touch directly with your care home for more information.
