The Beeches unveils new visitor pod for family visits this Winter

We are so thrilled introduced our new visitor pod that will allow our residents and their loved ones to meet indoors this winter.

Over the last few months, residents at The Beeches Residential Home have been enjoying socially distanced garden visits with their family and friends. With the winter fast approaching, concerns were raised as to how these visits could continue through the colder months.

The visiting pod will allow for only two people in the room at once and includes Perspex that will sit in between individuals and hand sanitiser stations. We are maintaining our strict safety procedures in line with Public Health England, maintaining social distancing within the visiting pod to ensure it is Covid-secure for visitors and residents.

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

“We are delighted to debut our new visitor pod. This has been a much-welcomed development in unprecedented times, and we are very happy to be able to give the gift of time and space for our residents and their loved ones.

“We’re all looking forward to the day when they can hug each other, but until then, we hope that our new secure visitor pod will make it a bit easier for our residents and their families.”

Here at The Beeches we are pleased to accounce that we are still welcoming new residents to the home. We have specific procedures in place, to continue to support families who are looking for care for a loved one, whilst minimising the risk for residents and staff.
