‘Delay stage’ statement

As we move from the ‘contain phase’ to the ‘delay phase’ for managing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, all at Christadelphian Care Homes remain committed to ensuring that we keep our residents, families, staff and visitors as safe as is reasonably possible.To be able to do this effectively we need to implement a number of control and protection measures. We do not make these decisions lightly and we appreciate that this will cause a level of discomfort, but we believe that this is a necessary step to take.As a preventative measure, we are asking family members and friends to minimise the frequency of visits and the number of visitors at any one time to ALL our care homes. This will be until further notice to help us mitigate the risk to our residents.Please be prepared to be asked the purpose of your visit on entrance AND please accept the decision made by our teams about admission, acknowledging that this is a very challenging and quickly changing situation.There may be situations that require direct family members to make ‘non-routine’ visit, in these situations we ask that you discuss this with the Home Manager so we can ensure that all the appropriate precautionary measures are taken, and any potential risk is minimalised.In addition, we are limiting visits for the foreseeable future, including: -- All general visits from the community;- External activities & entertainment;- Non-essential maintenance.During this stage of the outbreak our staff will continue to do all they can to ensure that life in our homes remains a positive social experience. We have reasonable contingency plans in place to continue to deliver a wide range of activities and occupation and are thankful for the support of our ‘screened’ volunteers.We will also endeavour to ensure that essential health visits continue and will be liaising directly with our health & social care partners to promote positive health outcomes.Be assured that we are closely following the guidance provided by the Public Health authorities to ensure that our teams are supported to continue to deliver great care whilst keeping our residents safe.If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via the form in the Contact tab on this website.We do really appreciate your support with these measures, we understand the emotional difficulties they will create, and we thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation.

Coronavirus (Covid-19): Advice when visiting a Christadelphian Care Home

The situation around coronavirus (Covid-19) is fast-paced and ever-changing, guidance is being updated on an almost daily basis as more is understood about the virus, how it spreads, how it affects individuals and how to ‘manage’ it.We are doing all we can to mitigate the risk to our residents, staff, volunteers and visitors across all of our homes and schemes. Our teams are used to dealing with outbreaks of viruses, such as norovirus and seasonal influenza. As a result, we already have robust infection control arrangements in place. We are actively promoting in all our locations the importance of good hygiene and handwashing, placing posters in prominent places as a reminder.We would ask all our visitors to be as equally diligent in your personal hygiene by washing your hands regularly and using the hand gel which we have made available. Good hygiene is critical for your own protection but is imperative in supporting our efforts to protect our residents.We will constantly update and refine our plans as the situation changes, we are constantly listening to the guidance being issued by the Government and have our own ‘steering group’ to support effective intervention.As we progress through the stages, we will also be guided by public health as to what steps we would need to take as each situation will differ. This will range from asking a staff member to stay at home and isolate themselves, community activities being cancelled through to a resident being isolated in their room or a home having to be closed to visitors.Any home closures will be communicated on this page.Thank you for your support and understanding.Guidance from the Government is being constantly updated.To find out the latest go to gov.uk/coronavirus or nhs.uk/coronavirus
