Visiting Our Homes
In line with government guidance we are now able to remove some of the visiting restrictions that have been in place during the COVID pandemic and continue on our journey towards “normal service” with friends, relatives and the community joining us again in the day to day lives of our Service Users. We thank you for your support and kind words during this most difficult of times.
The current government guidance for visits to care homes which do not have an outbreak of Covid-19 looks to support a more normal visiting environment, alongside the need to remain observant and reactive to the transmission of communicable disease. To enable us to safely manage the number of visitors in the home at any one time, we would prefer that visits are pre-booked by calling the home 24hrs before the planned visit with all visitors following our safe visiting protocols. We are of course happy to support visitors on a walk in basis again with all visitors following our safe visiting protocols.
Registered essential care givers (ECG) may continue to visit at any time.
It is preferred that visitors are fully vaccinated, unless they are medically exempt, and do not present with symptoms of COVID or any communicable disease on the day of their visit. Visitors will now only have to submit to their temperature being taken, this only being followed with an LFD test if indicated as required via screening.
Visiting out is supported via a risk assessment to reduce the risk of residents coming in contact with infected parties.
It is not recommended for unvaccinated residents to go out.
We can confirm that:
