As most of you know, we are planning visits to start again in our gazebo from 2nd November. Some of you have already made appointments. Marnie will be in touch to arrange these. Is it possible for those who have already booked to have this as a regular slot? This would avoid a lot of hassle. If you haven’t heard from Marnie yet, it won’t be long.
Other contact can still be supported via letters, emails, telephone calls and video calls using Skype/Zoom/Facetime.
Last week we started Restore2. This is a piece of work around observations of Residents. We were already taking temperatures twice a day. Now we are checking SATs twice a day too. This will be for all residents so we can establish their ‘norm’. This will them make it more obvious to us if they become unwell, and if they were to get Covid or deteriorate in other ways, we would be in a better position when we speak with GPs or Paramedics.
All Residents have been tested this week and all had a negative result.

So, what have we been up to this last week!
Thank you to Fr Darren A’Court who led our Harvest Service Last Friday. It was lovely to come together virtually in celebration and thanksgiving.
The Residents have been busy making Halloween decorations for our windows and spider pompoms to hang around looking spooky. We will be having a Halloween party on Friday 30th. Staff and Residents will be dressing up!!
