Welcome to BCVS Homes
COVID-19 - UPDATE Monday 11th May 2020
Following the Prime Minister's announcement we have considered the new guidelines in line with our action plan going forward to ensure the safety and well being of our residents.
We appreciate that you will be aware of the media focusing and reporting on the national crisis in care homes and we would like you to know that neither of our homes have had any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19. Our staff are well equipped to protect themselves, we have sufficient stocks of PPE sourced through the BANES Council and we have also purchased additional items to ensure that we remain well stocked in case of an emergency or national shortage of PPE from government supplies. We now have access to equipment to test residents on site and remote facilities available to test staff.
As we have been successful in preventing COVID-19 from entering the homes, please be aware that our visiting restrictions will still apply to continue to protect our residents and staff for a minimum of three weeks. Please continue to contact the Home Managers with any queries, we will continue to maintain contact via virtual technology as often as we can.
BCVS Homes has an occupational sick pay scheme and staff will be paid this benefit if they experience any symptoms of COVID-19 and need to self-isolate. There have been some minor staffing shortfalls due to isolating or shielding and we are extremely proud of our staff who have remained dedicated and committed during this time to care for our residents and the Board of Directors have introduced a bonus scheme in the short term with the aim to support our front line staff through this period.
Marie Kelly-Perkins, Company Secretary/HR Manager

Please feel free to visit and see whether one of our homes is the right one for you. We offer a one month trial period to help you decide or you might like to consider a short stay or holiday break and for us to assess your personal care needs.
BCVS Homes has been established for over 65 years providing care for the elderly on a "Not for Profit" basis. Profits are ploughed back into the company for the benefit of the residents. We believe in giving value for money. We will not compromise on the quality of your care or standard of your accommodation.
Our philosophy is that care should be of the highest standards, but unobtrusive, our main concern is quality of life.
Our objective is to look after our residents in a caring and sympathetic way; to ensure privacy and dignity is respected and to encourage active independence for as long as possible.
