I would firstly like to thank you for your continuing support towards Lavender House and our residents.
As we begin to move into the winter period, our sector faces some challenging times especially as covid–19 cases begin to rise across the country. We continue to hold very good stocks of PPE to allow our staff to do their work safely.
I am pleased to report that we currently have no Covid cases amongst staff or residents. Staff continue to be tested weekly and residents every 28 days although we are able to ad–hoc test any resident sooner than 28 days should we require to do this.
As part of our continued effort to support our staff in being able to do their work in a safe and effective way, we have organised a series of training sessions specific to covid–19 and infection control.
Lavender House is creating Covid Champions whose roles are to act as the lead in supporting the Home Manager with covid infection control practices and procedures.
Our priority during the pandemic has always been the protection of our residents and staff, and to prevent infections entering the home. The current visiting arrangements of Garden Visiting when the weather permits still remain in place and I am thankful for your support and patience in adhering to the current arrangements.
Work is starting on installing visiting shields that will allow for safe internal visiting in the near future.
As we enter a new 4 week national lockdown, we will continue to closely monitor any government guidance regarding care home visiting and will update you with any change to our current visiting arrangements.
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.
