News Update – Visiting guidance at The Beeches Residential Home

As we welcome the spring sunshine, here at The Beeches Residential Home we are thrilled to announce we too can begin reuniting loved ones back into our home following our visiting guidance.

Following the recent Government guidance, we are now allowing every one of our residents to have the opportunity to nominate one family or friend to see and to make repeated visits to our home.

Since January, all of our staff and residents received their first vaccination against COVID-19 and to ensure the utmost safety for everyone, we are following strict procedures and maintaining social distancing during visits to ensure it is COVID-secure for visitors and residents.

Before entering our home, we have included some new visiting guidance and rules that you must know and follow before visiting.

1.  All visits are by appointment only


If you wish to visit a loved one here at The Beeches Residential Home, you must prebook an appointment with our friendly staff on 01359 230773.

Visiting can take place either in our dedicated COVID-secure pod, indoors, or if weather permits, you can sit outside and enjoy the spring sunshine in our garden.

2. Visits are still socially distanced


As many of our staff and residents are still awaiting their second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, we are asking relatives to still maintain a social distance during visits.

Hand holding is permitted but only when visitors have completed a COVID test before entry, wearing the correct PPE and sitting outside.

3. Testing is required prior to entering the home


Testing is only required if visitors decide to enter the home and will be asked by a member of staff to do a COVID test. Every visitor has the choice to say no to a test but in this circumstance, we would legally not be allowed to let visitors enter the home.

If you wish to enter our home for a visit, you must inform us when pre-booking your visit so we can administer you with a test that needs to be done 3 days before date of visit. On the day of visiting, you will be retested to ensure the utmost safety for yourselves, residents and staff members.

If visitors wish to only visit outside in the dedicate visiting pod or in our garden, a test is then not required.

From all of us at The Beeches Residential Home, we wanted to thank you all so much for your patience and understanding in these challenging times, and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to our home.

The Beeches are still welcoming new residents and has clear policies and procedures in place to be able to do this safely.

For more information on visitations or The Beeches Residential Home, please call 01359 230773 or fill in a contact form here.
