At Heatherwood Care Centre our first priority is always the safety of residents, colleagues and visitors in our homes. With the annual threat of norovirus or influenza, our home managers are already well versed in infection control and have clear processes in place to prevent and contain infections among both residents and team members. However, we are not complacent about the coronavirus outbreak or the potential risks it may pose for older people.
We want to reassure you that, whilst we are doing our best to keep care home life as normal as possible for residents, we are continuing to assess the situation nationally and locally, and to put in place measures to reduce the risk of the virus inadvertently being brought into the home.
Please note that from the 11th November 2021 it is a requirement that all visitors are vaccinated against Covid-19 or can evidence exemption.
