Visitation Guildelines

As of 19 July 2021, the Government has announced England’s roadmap out of Covid restrictions.

Visiting indoors has moved to unlimited named visitors. Where possible we will chat with our residents to ask them who they would like as their main visitors. This will be documented in the careplan. Where a resident does not have the mental capacity to choose their named visitors, we will have a discussion with the next of kin or power of attorney to ensure the named visitors are recorded.

Visiting Guidelines from 19/07/2021

Following on from the Prime Ministers easing of restrictions as of today, the ONLY change that relates to visits to nursing homes is the scrapping of the 'Nominated Visitors List'. Therefore, all other procedures remain.

LFD Covid test to be carried out on arrival at the premises. Once a negative result is shown the visitor will be allowed in the premises and to the room.

Only 2 visitors per resident per day. This can be 2 visitors at the same time or you can visit separately.

A booking system still remains in place. Call 01562 755888 to book your visiting slot.

Prime Ministers Announcement on 5th July 2021.

You will probably have heard the Prime Ministers announcement on the 5th July announcing the possibility of the easing of the current lockdown on the 19th July. There was very little content in the speech about how this would impact Nursing Homes. We are now awaiting official guidance from Public Health England and also our local CCG on what, if anything will change with relation to nursing homes and the visitation rules for relatives/friends.

As soon as we have been informed of any updated guidelines we will of course let the immediate next of kin know.

We now have a dedicated 'Donation Station' table located just inside the entrance. All donations we receive will be used for in-house fundraising events for our residents.

Statement Date 28th May 2021

WMCA statement concerning allegations that the Government was aware that patients were being sent to care homes without being tested for Covid

Boris Johnson has expressed "full confidence" in Health Secretary Matt Hancock over claims he lied about protecting care homes from Covid. The West Midlands Care Association does not share Boris Johnson's confidence!
