We care about safety

The health, safety and well-being of residents, visitors and team members is paramount. Especially at a time when Covid19 and other viruses circulate within society.

We take pride in our extremely high standard of cleanliness
and attention to detail, which have helped ensure we are well
prepared for situations just like this. Our number one priority,
now and always, is ensuring the safety of our residents and

But we’re going even further during these unprecedented times
and have implemented additional measures to keep everyone
safe and happy in our home. Some of these measures include:

  • All staff do Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) before coming on duty.
  • The home has a comprehensive Infection, Prevention and Control Policy which includes staff training and up-to-date communications with residents, families and staff.

  • Our housekeeping teams follow a robust cleaning and environmental decontamination programme throughout the Home overseen by the Management Team.

  • We follow Government guidance and, along with advice from the Covid Safe Team, customise our policies to safely meet the needs of our residents.


Visiting The Home

We want to make visiting your loved ones as easy and
straightforward as possible while keeping them safe. Nothing
can replace the care and love family and friends provide.
We know the period of the pandemic has been a particularly
difficult and emotional time for care home residents, their loved
ones, and staff.

The Government’s Covid 19 Vaccination programme has to a
large extent minimised the impact that this virus has had on
society and in particular vulnerable individuals such as our

We therefore would appreciate your continued co-operation
with the precautions and risk assessments that remain in place
at our Home to keep our residents, staff and visitors safe.

It is particularly important that you:

    • • Take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) on the day of your visit. Testing supports care homes to safely maintain a balance between infection control and the vital benefits of visiting to the health and wellbeing of our residents. We are happy to give you a LFT kit on arrival should you need them for use before entering the premises.
    • • Continue to book appointments to visit the care home as this means there is time for cleaning surfaces between visits to keep your loved ones safe and also minimises the footfall through the Home.
    • • Effective communication between us all is key to a shared
      understanding of the necessary policies and practices that
      we have in place and we promise to ensure we play our part
      in this.

If you have any other questions about visiting or matters
concerning your family members, please contact Monica
Le Mière, our Home Manger on Tel: 855656.
