Health, Safety and Wellbeing

The health, safety and wellbeing of our Residents and Staff are always our top priorities. Our staff continue to do an excellent job working in line to our policy and procedures to respond to the coronavirus outbreak in the country. Our plans are kept under regular review and updated as advised by the Public Health authorities.

New Residents

We continue to take new residents into our care homes. Please contact our Care Enquiries Team if you are looking for care in Peterborough area.

We want to assure you that when admitting all new residents we have a strict 14 day bedroom isolation policy. Plus we have a regular covid-19 test regime for residents and staff. We have procedures in place depending on the outcome of the test to ensure the safety of our residents and staff.

Visiting our Homes

Visitors are not permitted inside our Homes, except in some exceptional circumstances.

We are waiting for the soon to be available guidance from the Department of Health regarding visiting. What this guidance will be and how it will be controlled are yet to be established, but as soon as we know we will review how the guidance will be safely put into practice.


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.

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.
