Recent Press Reports

In recent weeks there has been a lot of attention on Care Homes during the Covid-19 outbreak, and many of the headlines have focused on the difficulties Care Home are facing. Whilst our hearts go out to any of our social care colleagues who are suffering outbreaks within their homes, it is also important for us to make you aware of our committed and dedicated staff and how good infection control practices help to keep the virus under control. Every single day, our staff go to work to make a difference to people’s lives, and they continue to do this even more so than ever during these harder times.

Our policies regarding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that were implemented when the homes were closed to non essential visitors remain in place, and we have sufficient supplies. We felt it was important that you were aware that we have no concerns about maintaining this supply, in contrary to reports from the news. We continue to source PPE on a daily basis and we are linked into all the local and national supply chains including those whom we can contact in an emergency situation should we ever be in a situation where our PPE is low.

It was announced by the Health Secretary that testing for Covid-19 had now been made available to any residents who were showing symptoms. The Government also announced that all social care staff would have access to local testing facilities and we are very pleased to learn that a testing centre has opened in Peterborough.

I want to thank our relatives for the support you have shown during this period, as I know it can’t be easy for any of you.

Please all stay safe.

Amar Marjara
