Weekly News Update 30th October 2020

From Monday 2nd November, it will be possible for you to visit your relative or friend in a dedicated visiting area. Our priority continues to be preventing the spread of Covid-19 and maintaining the safety and wellbeing of our residents, their visitors, and our staff.

Designated Outdoor Visiting Pod
Unfortunately, at Culliford we do not have a designated indoor visiting room. Therefore, we have installed a heater to the outdoor visiting area.

Essential Bedroom Visits
If your relative is unwell and unable to leave their room, we may be able to facilitate a visit in their bedroom. You will be taken to their bedroom by a member of staff and asked to ring the call bell when you are due to leave.

Visitor Protocol

  • Visits will be for a maximum of 30 minutes
  • We aim to ensure all our residents receive a visit wherever possible
  • If you arrive late for your visit, the length of your visit will be reduced to ensure that other visits can go ahead on time
  • If you decide to cancel your visit, please let the home know as soon as possible
  • All visitors will be provided with PPE and a face covering when visiting
  • We request that you do not visit if you are unwell or if any members of your household are self-isolating, or if you are from an area where there is an enforced local lockdown
  • Ensure that any gifts that you bring are handed to staff to provide opportunity for sanitisation, in-line with our infection prevention control measures.

On Arrival

  • Please ring the main doorbell
  • You will be asked to sign attendance register and a temperature check will be taken
  • In compliance with our infection prevention measures you will be asked to use hand gel to sanitise hands and will be given a facemask to wear
  • Staff will then take you to the designated outside visiting area.

We continue to monitor local Covid-19 infection rates and if our home is instructed to suspend visiting by the Local Director of Public Health, we will let you know as soon as possible.

We do hope you will be able to take advantage of these revised visiting options but if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Visiting Co-ordinator, Marnie Moors Deputy Manager.
