ADAPTING OUR PRACTICE DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK

The outbreak of COVID-19 throughout the world has led to unprecedented measures being taken in social care services in order to meet the challenges we all face.

Please know we are doing everything within our power to keep those in our homes safe and to keep our vital services operating as normally as possible during this difficult time. We are adhering to Government guidance – and in some cases going above and beyond those measures.

All staff are now based at home for the foreseeable future, unless operationally essential to be on site, for example, in our Semi-independent homes and supported living services. Inevitably, this may affect the way we work with you and this is outlined below, along with current adaptations to our practice that have been necessary:

SEMI-INDEPENDENT 16+

We have unfortunately reduced access to our homes to essential visits only, which are heavily restricted and determined on a case by case basis. We are doing everything we can within our capacity to keep families, social workers in touch with their relatives on an individual basis.

Please rest assured that while these measures are necessarily stringent we are working very hard to ensure our residents continue to live varied and fulfilled lives inside our homes. We have taken measures to introduce new activities and equipment and are utilising all our resources to make life as enjoyable and as normal as possible for everyone.

We will continue to update this notice regularly, as Government guidance changes. If you have any questions at all about our practice in context of the Covid- 19 outbreak, or any other questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team.
