Covid 19 Update
As a charity, our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff and our residents. We are monitoring Coronavirus symptoms daily across both homes, to ensure that these remain isolated so that we, as a leading and caring organisation, can continue to thrive and support those in need.
We have closed our three community halls and suspended our lunch clubs.
STEPS WE ARE TAKING
Hygiene standards are always a top priority, however, with the virus, we have asked staff to increase their cleaning routines. This includes washing hands, using disinfectant sprays and alcohol wipes,
We have a dedicated team monitoring the situation with calls routed to their mobiles and homes.We have ordered additional supplies of personal protective clothing and have face masks for if anyone is diagnosed with Covid-19.
Our team are closely watching the latest advice from the government, local authorities and NHS and will make the necessary changes as time goes on.
