Covid-19 Update for Holmesdale House & Holmesdale Day Care.
We at Holmesdale House have an evolving contingency plan in response to Covid-19.
We continue to follow guidance and directions from Public Health England to minimise the risk of infection. The health and wellbeing of our residents and staff will remain as always, our top priority.
We are following government instructions with regards to restricting visits which are also instructions to the wider population also. However, we appreciate that communication is still vitally important between our residents’ families and friends, we are facilitating this through, facetime and of course our telephone line.
We are aware of our obligation as a social care provider to support those in need of our services and to assist our hardworking colleagues in the NHS. We are at a time when we must all do what we can for the good of the wider community, in particular those who are elderly, frail and vulnerable.
We whole heartedly appreciate this is a worrying time for families and the anxiety faced of caring for a loved one, particularly during these unprecedented times. There is no need to feel alone as we are here to help. Holmesdale House will always provide a home from home experience for your loved one. Feel free to call us and we’ll be happy to discuss.
To re-assure you, as a responsible care provider, any new admissions to Holmesdale House are done on a very precautionary basis to ensure we safeguard our existing residents and staff, ensuring that your loved and our staff are not put at risk:
- The potential resident has not been exposed to an environment which has had reported cases of Covid-19.
- They are not displaying any symptoms themselves.
- They have not been in contact with others that may display symptoms.
- An assessment will be conducted in their own home and decision made within 24 hours.
Holmesdale Day Care
Unfortunately, Holmesdale Day Care remains closed until further notice.
We are continuously following the advice from Public Health England and will update our practices accordingly.
Thank you for your continued support at this time.
The Holmesdale Team
