COVID-19

After months of lockdown and the challenges that have been faced by our residents, their families and friends, we are delighted to be opening our doors to visitors and welcoming new residents. While we recognise that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating and sometimes overwhelming impact on everyone’s lives, we are happy to be making these small steps back to normality. 

The health of our residents, their families and our staff remains our top priority at Queens View Harbour Care Home. We have seen the life changing impact of COVID-19 first hand, thus it is our ongoing commitment to everyone in our community to do everything within our power to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Care that Goes Above & Beyond, Always

Our teams have been dedicated to supporting our residents through these unprecedented times, prioritising the health and safety of our residents above all else. As well as being a continual source of reassurance for their families and friends. We have maintained the highest levels of hygiene, in a warm and friendly environment, with around-the-clock, person-centred care.

It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.

A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.

For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.
