Peterborough Care would like to offer reassurance of our commitment to keep your loved ones safe amid recent publicity regarding the spread of Coronavirus. We will deal with any suspected outbreak of the virus in accordance with published NHS and Department of Health Guidelines. The guidelines cover the potential identification and diagnosis of the virus in somebody connected to one of our homes as well as the process to be followed thereafter – isolating of the infected person, their transfer to a specialist unit, and the environmental deep cleaning of the Home.
You may be aware that the UK Chief Medical Officer has now raised the risk of the Coronavirus being a public health emergency of international concern from low to moderate and as such it is imperative that we first and foremost protect the safety and welfare of our residents.
This is why we have taken steps to put measures in place and we rely on your support to assist us with these including the communicating of them.
It is important to bear in mind that every year our Homes prepare to respond to infectious diseases such as Diarrhoea and Vomiting, and a severe flu outbreak. Therefore, whilst coronavirus is new, it is very much business as usual for how we safeguard the health of our Residents and Colleagues.
All of our homes currently remain open to visitors, but we are now taking steps to minimise the risk of infection to our Residents and Colleagues. Such measures have already begun to be implemented.
Before visiting any of our homes, please consider the following:
Having considered the above information, if you are still planning to visit one of our care homes it is important that you do so safely and in a way that minimises the risk of infection to our Residents and Colleagues. Therefore, before visiting and whilst on site, please consider the following:
We appreciate your full cooperation with our Coronavirus procedures, we rely on your support to communicate our procedures out to family and friends connected to your loved one and we will continue to keep you updated as changes to our procedures occur.
These procedures will be updated regularly as the pandemic develops.
