Update and news 7th May 2021

Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to this week’s newsletter. We hope you find this useful in terms of giving you an update on what is happening at Culliford and what we’ve been up to, including any updates regarding COVID.

Throughout the pandemic we have continually reviewed our visiting policy in line with latest government guidance. We understand how important continuing to visit your relatives is to you and that is why we want to keep you up to date with our plans as much as we can. 

We are pleased to inform you that we can now extend our indoor visits from 30mins to one hour from next Monday 10th May.

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.

Visits out of care homes
From 4 May 2021, residents can leave their care home to spend time outdoors, without subsequent isolation for 14 days. Guidance was published this week that sets out:

  • How visits out of a care home can take place
  • Steps to reduce risk around a visit out
  • The role of the provider in supporting visits out
  • Risk Assessing

Please click on the link below for further information and latest updated guidance on visits out of the home:
» Arrangements for visiting out of the care home

We are looking further at the guidance and will provide more details in next week’s newsletter. 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.

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

Sir Captain Tom Initiative – The 100 challenge

Last April Sir Captain Tom set out to walk 100 laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS. His simple message of hope “Tomorrow’s another day” had inspired us all. 
We have asked residents to come up with ideas as to what we can do in celebration of his achievements. We would like to also ask you for your suggestions and ideas too. Not too hard please!

Please email your ideas to Janet or Steph
