Welcome to BCVS Homes
VISITING UPDATE 6th March 2021
In light of the government’s announcement on February 22nd, we are delighted that we can soon safely begin face-to-face visits from the 8th of March. We would like to again offer our sincere thanks to our incredible care teams, and a huge thank you also for your support and kind understanding throughout these difficult times. We are very much looking forward to seeing your familiar faces again soon. We shall share more details and update you on the visiting procedure in coming days. To swiftly address any concerns you may have at any point, please speak with the Home Managers or a member of the team directly at the home either by telephone or email.
COVID 19 - UPDATE Friday 8th January 2020
As a result of the national lockdown you will be aware that Government guidelines have suspended in-room visits for care home residents. As infections in the local community have recently increased, we have reluctantly been required to temporarily withdraw our visiting provision for internal visits that have been taking place in the conservatory and garden rooms. Visits deemed essential or the health or well-being of the resident will still be considered on a case by case basis with the Registered Home Managers as before.
On a positive note, we are filled with optimism due to the COVID19 vaccinations gradually becoming available to our Residents and staff and further testing recently becoming available to our staff.
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.
