Visitors are permitted to visit relatives
Following successful visits organised through the garden access to the west of the building and distanced visiting on split level patios, many of you have been able to see your friends and relatives in the summer months.
Recognising that summer is sadly over, outdoor visits are not always possible. We have invested in wipe clean surfaces and vinyl tiled floors in the Conservatory, so that we can arrange indoor socially distanced meetings for the next period. Please call the home to book a slot and we will try to accommodate you at times when we are less busy (i.e. avoiding medicine rounds and mealtimes). We will try to provide privacy for your visit although the home is open plan.
For clients at the end of life or, with long term illness we are able to arrange room visits with full PPE. Please call the home for more details, keep an eye on our Facebook page or, ask for your email to be added to our relatives and friends email distribution list where updates are posted when necessary.
These are ways in which you can help us maintain a quality of life for residents over the coming days.
Please avoid telephone calls at busy times such as early morning, lunch and early evening.
Try and call residents own dedicated line when they are likely to be in their rooms. (If you don't know it we can email it to you).
Send messages by email and include picture or video clips, which we can share. (We will try and reply)
Use our Facebook page to send encouragement and to see our residents activities.
Visit with appropriate pre-booking and only when well observing our PPE and social distancing policy.
The residents are occupied and generally happy and we have good supplies of food and provisions. We are having to be more creative than ever to ensure that their quality of life remains high and are rising to the challenge.
We continue to email our residents relatives and friends on regular basis with a short newsletter.
