The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff are always our top priorities. We have therefore put in place robust and comprehensive contingency plans to prepare for, and respond to, the coronavirus outbreak in the UK. Our plans will be kept under regular review and updated as advised by the Public Health authorities.
Before visiting a Kingsley Healthcare home
As a preventative measure we are asking visitors, including family members and friends, to now restrict visits to our care homes to between the times of 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m. until further notice. We also request that children do not visit our homes. We have not taken this decision lightly, and appreciate that this may cause some discomfort, but feel that this is a necessary step to take. We would really appreciate your support with these measures. In the unfortunate situation that we do have a case in one of our homes we will need to stop all visiting completely and we will keep you informed accordingly.
How to safely visit a Kingsley Healthcare home
Having considered the above information, if you are visiting one of our homes it is important that you do so safely and in a way that minimises the risk of infection to our residents and staff. Therefore, before visiting and whilst on site, please follow this simple guidance:
* Hand washing - It is important that you wash your hands thoroughly before you visit the care home, and regularly whilst you are at the home. Please make sure you wash your hands for a minimum or 20 seconds, using either hot water and soap or 60% alcohol sanitiser gel.
