The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and colleagues continues to be our top priority and we are continuing with our robust and comprehensive response to Coronavirus. Our plans are kept under regular review and are updated in accordance with government guidance.
Following the recent Government announcements regarding a return to indoor visiting in care homes, we are now delighted to be welcoming visitors back to our homes.
In line with the guidance, indoor visiting is allowed by two designated people (the same people each visit). The option of outdoor visits for up to two ‘constant visitors’ is also available.
All visits must be booked in advance with the home; and visitors should ensure they continue to follow the protocols for visiting safely including the use of PPE; and for any indoor visits, being tested using a Lateral Flow Device (Rapid Test). The guidance from the government is that a resident and their visitor can hold hands, but there should be no other close contact such as hugging.
If at any time we experience an outbreak of Covid-19 we will have to suspend indoor visiting once again, but please be assured that we will follow all government and local health protection guidelines if this were the case.We appreciate your continued support and cooperation.
