What we are doing to support at the RED setting

We will keep you updated with any major changes announced by the government and the measures we are taking to support this.

Our staff are fully vaccinated, and we continue to take precautions to maintain our COVID safe villages.

Visitors

Village Residents:

Our communal areas are open, and residents/visitors will need to show a vaccination pass when requested. As outlined in the Government’s protection framework, access to these communal areas is limited to vaccinated people only.

Regular activities will resume. Mask wearing is essential except for eating and drinking.

Care Home:

Visitors are once again welcome to visit their loved ones in the Care Home. Please contact reception in the first instance to make a booking.

Vaccinated visitors are welcome and are limited to two people at a time.

Visitors will be required to sign in and scan the Covid Tracer app, show My Vaccine Pass, and provide photo identification.

 

All visitors are required to wear a mask for the duration of their visit and undertake a health check (temperature taken).

If you are unvaccinated or accompanying a child under 12 years, outdoor visiting only is allowed which requires staff assistance. Please phone the village directly to organise a time to visit, as we need to ensure this is in the safest way possible.

We thank you again for the collective approach that has been taken from our community of residents and staff working together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Your health, safety and well-being are very important to us. It is in everyone’s interests to follow the guidelines that have been set.

Keep strong, stay safe, be kind to one another and enjoy time spent with loved ones.
