Welcome to BCVS Homes
COVID 19 - UPDATE Monday 23rd November 2020
Since the Government's announcement of a national lockdown in England on 5th November, BCVS Homes have received guidance on how this lockdown affects visits to care homes and details of our approach during lockdown is outlined as follows;
- Our teams are following guidance around social distancing, respiratory and hand hygiene members and the correct wearing of PPE.
- We have been taking advantage of all available testing, ensuring colleagues have a weekly COVID-19 test and residents are tested once a month wherever possible.
- We have introduced protocols to support family visits that are as safe and enjoyable as possible for all involved whilst complying with Government guidance and are continuing to invest in new technologies to maintain family connections. Moveable Perspex screens have been built for both homes.
- We have measures in place to limit the number of non-essential people coming into our homes, including a strong focus on reducing agency workers , ensuring our teams only work in one care home and postponing all non-essential visits.
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.
