At Beechgrove Care Home it is our top priority to make sure that everyone within our home is safe from the risks of COVID-19. We continue to follow guidance and legislation as issued by the Government and key sector bodies and we are committed to keeping our residents, their families, and our staff well-informed at all times.

Despite the results of COVID-19, we have worked hard to implement policies and procedures that provide a level of reassurance for all residents and visitors to the home.

Keeping Safe

At Beechgrove Care Home, we make sure we have a supply of PPE and hand hygiene products and that all team members follow the infection prevention and control measures we have put in place.

Additionally, we keep up to date and in compliance with official advice and guidance provided by the Government, Department of Health, and the local NHS Trust. We recommend that everyone in our home remain up to date with all available vaccinations and boosters for both COVID-19 and flu and where cases do occur, we have an effective system for recording cases and taking appropriate action to keep them as contained as possible.

Staying Connected

Following on from COVID-19, we are dedicated to ensuring that our home keeps connected with their families and members of our local community. We support our residents in being able to leave our care home for day trips and overnight stays. To enable this, residents will be required to undertake an assessment which includes screening questions when they return. At present, there are no requirements for testing and isolation for residents who temporarily leave the home but to ensure everyone’s safety we do encourage residents to be vaccinated for day trips and overnight stays.

If there is a time when visits may be difficult, we offer a variety of online devices to enable our residents to video call their loved ones to remain connected. We understand the importance that human connection and participation in activities have on our resident’s mental and physical well-being, which is why we go above and beyond to support residents in continuing with their hobbies, pursuing new interests, and meeting new people.

We understand the importance of COVID-19 and keeping our residents, their families, and our staff safe. At Penrose Court Care Home, we are always happy to assist and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Here are some of our FAQs regarding COVID-19. 

Whilst being vaccinated is no longer mandatory we strongly recommend that all residents, their visitors, and team members at Beechgrove Care Home are fully COVID-19 vaccinated, including future boosters, unless medically exempt. To reduce the risk of infection to others we will continue to encourage our team members to have all their vaccinations.

During an outbreak, there may be risk assessments carried out to include but not limited to the control of visiting arrangements, admissions to the home, and the use of communal areas for a period of time. We work closely with local and national agencies in accordance with local agreements and guidance. For more information please contact our Home Manager directly.

When transferring from the community or another care home a person does not need to isolate if the circumstances at the care home / interim care facility from which the person has transferred are known.

If the resident is symptomatic or has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, then they should isolate and perform two LFT tests on day (0), and again on day (2). Isolation can end following two negative tests.

If the resident tests positive in the home, they must be isolated for 5 days. The resident can then return to their normal activities if they feel well and do not have a high temperature (without the use of medication paracetamol).

Residents who test positive should avoid contact with other people who are eligible for COVID-19 treatments for 10 days after a positive test. Residents unable to take the test should isolate for 5 days.
