Welcome to BCVS Homes
Visiting Update 5th May 2021
The Government have announced that from 4th May, residents will be able to leave their care homes to visit a friend or family member’s garden, or go on walks in places such as parks, public gardens and beaches and not have to self-isolate when they return. Please feel free to contact our Home Managers directly should you wish to discuss this change in the guidelines further.

Staff Testing & Vaccinations
All of our care home staff at Bathampton Manor and Greystones will undergo three tests per week; 1 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test and 2 Lateral Flow Tests (LFT). The staff members will be swabbed, prior to coming in to work, to rule out any risk of spreading COVID19. We are believe that this is the highest level of protection that we can offer to our Residents whilst they are awaiting the vaccine.
Vaccinations are due to commence in the week beginning 12th January and we have actively encouraged all of our staff to take part in the process. Many GP surgeries are preparing for mass roll-out of vaccinations for Residents. If your loved one is unable to make decisions, and you feel that it is in their best interest to have one, please contact the home for the relevant consent forms that we need to be signed by their power of attorney for health and welfare.
Relative visits to our homes
We firmly believe that maintaining family and social connections is fundamental to the health and well-being of our residents. We are absolutely committed to ensuring residents in our homes are able to enjoy visits from their family and friends wherever possible while complying lockdown restrictions.
Where visiting is not possible, we will do our upmost to keep residents in touch with families using a wide range of tools. This includes using new tablets for Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp and phone calls.
Please feel free to contact the Registered Home Managers at our homes if you would like to obtain home specific information as they will be happy to update you.
