COVID-19

The team at Beechgrove are aware of the negative effect the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to everyone’s lives, however we are thrilled to start the process of the return to normality.

The health of all residents, visitors and staff will remain a top priority at Beechgrove Care Home. COVID-19 has caused a devastating impact within care homes, and we will continue to make the effort of ensuring everyone in our home is safe and at optimal health.

Residents’ Safety Will Remain a Top Priority

COVID-19 preventative measures are achieved to the highest of standards by the staff at Beechgrove Care Home. We will continue to ensure that these preventative measures are in place and that they lead to minimal disruption in our residents’ daily life. We work hard to ensure our home meets the top levels of safety and hygiene, while also ensuring that the home remains a warming and inviting place. Our care team is dedicated to supporting both future residents and their loved ones, as well as those who are currently residing with us during these unknown times.

It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.

A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.

For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party. At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change.
