Our ongoing efforts are to continue with your safety and the wellbeing of your loved one. We are writing to you to provide an update. Our joint work between yourself and staff have maintained an extremely low infection rate. We are striving to maintain this position. As you are aware from the media there has been new guidance issued to ourselves on the 22nd July 2020. Please refer to our website where there is an updated position statement and links to useful guidance we are using.
As some of you may be aware we have piloted socially distanced visitation within a couple of our settings. We aim now to provide this in all of our homes and this is being implemented by the following policy:-
A visit will have to be ended if this is not maintained as the government guidelines stipulate social distancing at all times.
We do appreciate all the efforts you have made during this very hard period but your efforts have kept your loved ones and our residents and staff as safe as possible. This must be a joint effort going forward which will allow these restrictions to hopefully be reviewed and relaxed. We will be posting updates regarding individual homes on our website on visiting restrictions to provide timely information.
In the future to prevent a time lag we will update our website showing the visitation status.
Yours with great thanks
Management Team – Hermes Group Homes
