This past year certainly hasn’t been easy, for our Staff and especially for our Residents. However, we are so very proud that we have not has a single case of Covid-19 in our home since the beginning of the pandemic!
Our amazing team of highly trained staff and incredible Manager, Emma, is the reason for this. We have been thorough with all of our staff members and ensured regular testing 3 times a week – still keeping regular testing in place now! We don’t want anything coming into our home that could affect our Residents. Any visitors such as Doctors or Nurses are sanitised head to toe, and we make sure they take a lateral flow test showing negative before entering our home.
We have always adhered to Government Guidelines when allowing visitors in our home and made sure all guests are wearing gloves, masks and aprons when visiting our loved ones and sat in a well ventilated room. It’s so hard to ensure the safety of our Residents and keep them healthy as well as trying to live a normal life and enjoy their time in our home, it has been very difficult but we had to do what was best for our Residents!
We have been ensuring that our Residents are always entertained with two activity sessions a day as well as enjoying the sunshine out in the garden – or whatever they would like to do really! Our staff have worked tirelessly to ensure that everybody is happy and healthy in this last year – and we couldn’t be more grateful for their dedication!
We hope to get through and out the other side of the Covid-19 pandemic VERY soon so we can get back to a sense of normality and so our residents can get out more and see their families again. The most important thing is that we keep everybody safe, happy and healthy!
