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.
In the last week we have experienced a significant rise in positive cases and we wish to protect your loved ones and staff and we have made the decision to stop visitation inside homes apart from when End of Life is near. We are facilitating outside visits using a pre booked system, please contact the homes directly to book your visit.
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
