Update and news 16th April 2021

Dear <<First Name>>,
Some good news! From Monday 12th April the government announced that Care home Residents will be able to be visited indoors by a second, named individual as part of the Prime Minister’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions.

Marnie or Julie will be in contact in the coming week to identify a second named visitor and to discuss these arrangements further with you. 

Please click on the link below for further information and latest updated guidance:

» Guidance on care home visiting – GOV.UK (

At all times, we continue to take direction from our local Public Health regarding the ‘R’ rate and monitor this ourselves very carefully. We will also consistently be reviewing our visiting guidance, and this may change instantly, as, and when required.

Indoor visits will be subject to a Lateral flow test and must be in line with government guidance and our infection, prevention, and control measures. See attached link:
» Coronavirus lateral flow testing in adult social care settings

End of Life Visits
Should your relative become acutely unwell or be approaching their final days of life we continue to accommodate essential visits. In these circumstances we can allow up to 2 relatives from the same household to visit supported with a lateral flow test.

Please do email Marnie Moors our Deputy Manager if you have any questions or concerns.

So, what have we been up to this last week!

Celebrating Easter
A good time was had by all as we celebrated Easter at our annual Easter Tea. Lots of lovely food and a very special Easter Cake was enjoyed by all. Although we couldn’t welcome relatives, it was lovely to be able to welcome some of you via Zoom for our Grand Easter Draw. Congratulations to all the winners!

Easter Service
A truly lovely service was held on Good Friday and led by Allen Knott.
We all enjoyed this moment of reflection.

Word Game
How many words can you guess? Always great fun and amazed with how words can be found.

...and last
We were sad to hear the news of HRH Prince Phillip death last Friday. Residents spoke fondly of his royal highness and The Queen. 

In preparation of St Georges Day, we have been busy preparing flags and enjoyed talking about British traditions and landmarks.
