Visiting from 8th March 2021

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he was “pleased” that it would soon be possible for people to be “carefully and safely reunited with loved ones who live in care homes”.

Our residents will be allowed to hold hands with loved ones from March 8 under the government’s plan to ease Covid-19 lockdown restrictions in England.

Residents will be allowed one person to regularly visit them, as measures begin to loosen across the country.

Visitors will be required to take a coronavirus lateral flow test before entry and personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn.

Please contact the home to arrange visits.

Covid-19 Visiting

We want to be able to allow visitors but are led by Government policy at all times. It is paramount that any visits must be pre-planned with the home. We will be able to test up to 2 visitors per resident, twice a week. Visitors will need to arrange visiting with the care home in advance, and will need to be mindful of the additional workload for the care home and that the care home will need to make their own assessments and may develop further policies to ensure the safety of the residents they care for and their staff.
