Coronavirus Update

As advised by the government and as we move to the next phase of our plans to support our residents and staff during this period of uncertainty with coronavirus (COVID-19), we are asking for your help and support. We are requesting NO visitors, except healthcare professionals, as from Friday 20th March 2020.

This is to ensure that we keep you and your loved ones as safe as possible as we know that this virus is very contagious.

Where there are exceptional circumstances, we may permit a controlled visit provided that it has been pre-arranged with managers and can ensure that the risks are fully mitigated.

We will still ensure that visitors wash their hands on entering and we will be asking all visitors to ensure they have no symptoms and will be taking their temperature.

At The Beeches Residential Home, we are able to take phone calls for messages to be given to loved ones or to enquire about their health and wellbeing.

If anyone would like to FaceTime or Skype we will try our best to assist you in doing so, to ensure you keep in touch with your loved one.

We are confident that our staff will do all they can to ensure that life in our home remains as comfortable and sociable as possible as we support them with delivering interactive activities.

We understand that this is a worrying time for you and want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure that our residents and staff are as safe as possible while we are guided by the advice from the public health authorities.

You can learn more about the government response to coronavirus here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Angela Wade, Home Manager
