In order to support all efforts to protect our residents unfortunately we have had to make the very difficult decision to restrict visiting to our Care Homes until further notice.

Robust and comprehensive contingency plans to assist and prepare us to respond to the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK are in place. We have formed a steering group who will regularly review the plan as advised by Public Health.

Non-essential visiting has also been restricted and includes external and community entertainment and non-essential maintenance visits for the foreseeable future.

We would appreciate your full support with this matter, we are more than happy to facilitate contact with your family via telephone calls or by other means of technology.

Any request to visit where there are exceptional circumstances will be considered, however these visits will be kept strictly to residents’ bedrooms no access to communal areas will be given.

Please do not attempt to arrange a visit if you feel unwell, have a cough, shortness of breath or if you have been in contact with someone who may have Coronavirus.

Our Home Managers and staff are aware of the steps to take to help prevent the spread of infection and you will be informed of all updates accordingly.

Further advice can be found at If you have any further questions, please contact the Home Manager.
