Coronavirus Update

5th May - With immediate effect, we are delighted to inform you that residents are now able to enjoy time away from our nursing homes in an outdoor space for example, a park or a private garden. We have taken advice from the Local Clinical Commissioning Groups and can confirm that residents can travel in the private family cars of their two nominated visitors who are regularly screened by Lateral Flow Device (LFD) testing. The residents and their relatives must wear a fluid repellent mask whilst travelling in the vehicle and it is advisable to ensure good ventilation by keeping the window open. Visitors and residents will both need to take, or show evidence of, a negative LFD test dated on the day of the visit or outing. It is very important that residents remain outdoor at all times apart from when they wish to use the bathroom facilities. Residents are advised to wear mask if they use the indoor facilities. All other visiting poilicies and procedures remain in place, unchanged. Please do not hesitate to contact the homes directly for more detailed information and guidance.

9th April -  Due to the changes in the National Care Home Visiting Guidance issued by the Government on 6th April 2021, we have reviewed our current visiting policy in line with Public Health England and the local Clinical Commissioning Group advice. From the 12th April, we will be delighted to introduce 2 named visitors for indoor face-to-face visits supported by Lateral Flow Device tests (LFD) in conjunction with the wearing of the full PPE. The visit can take place together or separately, as preferred.

We can also continue to offer visits to other friends or family members in the visiting rooms or outside in the garden. Visits with children can now be accommodated and will be discussed individually due to the different protocols for each different age group. Any children visiting (apart from babies and very young children) should also be counted towards the maximum number allowed for the visit. Please contact the homes directly to learn more about the specifics relalting to the precautions and guidleines in place to keep everyone safe at each. 

8th March - Due to the changes in the National Care Home Visiting Guidance issued by the Government on 4th March, which come into effect today, we have reviewed our current visiting policies in line with Public Health England's advice. All our homes are approaching visiting slightly differently according to their individual circustances and residents. However, all are very much looking forward to restarting visiting next week. We will be able to offer indoor and outdoor visiting appointments for one regular visitor per resident, supported by Lateral Flow Device tests (LFD) in conjunction with the wearing of the full PPE. Please contact the homes directly to learn more about the specifics relalting to the precautions and guidleines in place to keep everyone safe at each. 

4th January - Due to the National Lockdown, please contact the homes directly to discuss their current visiting arrangements which are in constant review to keep up with the latest news, information andvice from Public Health England. We remain commited to keeping our residents, staff and visitors safe and well at all times and look forward to hearing from you.

1st December - We are currently accepting admissions and we are delighted to be able to facilitate visiting for our residents' nominated friends, family and loved ones. Admissions and visits are conducted to incorporate current best practice guidance from Public Health England and all Government advice. Please contact the homes directly to learn more.
