How Larchwood Care is Responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our residents and teams remains our highest priority. As older people in care homes are among the most vulnerable groups in the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we have taken preventative steps to protect those in our care and employment.
Due to the rapidly changing situation, and to protect our residents and team members, we have taken the decision to close our homes to ALL visitors.
This decision has not been taken lightly, and we are sure that you will understand that the health and wellbeing of our elderly residents is the most important thing at this time.
In exceptional cases, such as when a resident is at the very end of life, an application may be made for special permission to enter the care home. Please contact the home manager directly to discuss this process and the conditions that must be observed for this to happen.
We are complying with the government’s advice in respect of the isolation requirements for both residents and staff. At the same time, our head office and management teams are also taking all the necessary precautions to delay the spread of this virus. This includes the provision of home-working where this is possible.
We will continue to review these steps daily and will update this webpage with our latest position.
