Coronavirus Update

Update 15 April 2021

Visiting Broadleigh

As lock-down eases across the country we are seeing some additional ways we can extend visiting for our residents and wanted to update you on this and how it will work at Broadleigh.

Contact Visit

These are visits for a nominated person for each resident.

There is now an option to have 2 nominated / named visitors. This means that one of the two nominated visitors are the only people permitted to visit this way at any one time.

Please contact Broadleigh to add the second named person.

All visits are by prior arrangement.

POD Visit

These will continue as normal and need to be pre booked.

There is a maximum of 2 people per pod visit and they must be from the same household or bubble in line with current government guidance.

Garden Visit

As we see the more clement weather setting in, we are now able to permit garden visits as we had done previously.

These are by prior arrangement with the home and will be for 1 person at a time.

Visiting Arrangements

We are pleased to extend visiting to children and babies.

Please advise us ahead of your visit if you are bringing a child along and that this is kept to one child per visit.

Any child under 11 years old does not have to wear a mask if they do not wish to.

All visitors over the age of 18 years old will be required to take a lateral flow test on arrival to the home and, if this is positive will not be permitted to go ahead with their visit, and will be advised to go home and isolate as per government guidance. You will also be advised to take a government PCR test to confirm your result.

Lateral flow tests are currently still required regardless of whether you have received any vaccination against Covid-19 due to the ongoing clinical trial of effectiveness, and some of our residents are still awaiting their own vaccinations.

All visits named above are your choice and you will only be able to choose one type of visit until further notice.

We will also not be able to facilitate multiple visits at the same time and so pre-booking a visit will continue to be the visiting policy.

Booking a Visit

Telephone Broadleigh on 01733 561 475 to book a visit.


We remain committed to the protection of all who visit Broadleigh and for those who live here so please bear with us as we try our best to accommodate all visit requests.

Thank you all for your support.

Please all stay safe.
