Our homes are being asked if they are now accepting New Residents? We thought we would provide you with an update which would help with some answers.
All of our homes can currently accept new residents to live with us on a respite or permanent basis.
Importantly this does mean that your loved one would need to be tested for Coronavirus. Our care teams, taking all precautions, would conduct the test. This is so our medical professionals can ensure the test is conducted correctly – results normally come back to us in around 48 hours.
Subject to a negative test we can admit your loved one into one of our homes. The choice of rooms can be conducted virtually and virtual tours of the homes can be facilitated, and of course you can speak to your loved one regularly using technology. Your loved one would need to remain in their room for a period of seven days.
Unfortunately, due to shielding advice, any family member would not be able to come into the home, but all of our homes are now arranging socially distant visits by appointment.
We hope this helps, if you have any questions please do let us know and speak to the home.
