Following on from COVID-19, we continue to be committed to ensuring that all our residents stay connected with their friends and family.
In our home, our residents are more than welcome to go for overnight stays and day trips. To enable this, residents will be required to undertake an individual risk assessment which includes the use of respiratory screening questions upon returning to the home. Currently, there are no requirements for testing and isolation for temporary leave but we do encourage everyone to keep up with vaccinations for day trips and overnight stays.
If visiting become restricted within our home because of an outbreak, for example, we are able to keep our residents connected through our variety of online devices. With these devices, we can organise video calls with friends and families so they can stay connected. We know how important it is for human connection and participation in activities to provide for our resident’s mental and physical well-being, which is why we go above and beyond to support our residents.
