Delight as all residents at The Beeches Residential Home are fully vaccinated!

We are delighted to announce that all residents and staff here at The Beeches Residential Home have received both doses of their COVID-19 vaccinations!

We were visited by Dr Hart of Ixworth Surgery, who immunised all residents and staff with the second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, a crucial milestone in the fight against the virus, one year after we entered into full lockdown on 23 March 2020.

Bev Shave, deputy home manager at The Beeches, said:

“After such a difficult year for us all, this feels like such a huge step towards getting back to some normality.”

“I am so proud of the team and how they have continued to work tirelessly throughout the pandemic, prioritising the health and care of our residents.”

“Now that everyone in the home has had both doses of the vaccine, we can start to work towards getting back to a new normal but will remain extremely vigilant in our approach.”

Following the recent Government guidance regarding visiting rules, we are now allowing Residents to nominate one family or friend to make repeated visits to the home.

Visiting is taking place either indoors in our dedicated COVID-secure pod or if weather permits, family and friends are able to sit outside and enjoy the spring sunshine in our beautiful garden!

Testing is only required if visitors decide to enter the home and will be asked by a member of staff to take a Covid test three days prior to their visit with us.
