Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, it is important that we protect our residents and staff.
Typical symptoms of Coronavirus include a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to sense of smell or taste. These symptoms may progress more in people with weakened immune systems, older people and those with long-term serious health conditions.
With this in mind, we wanted to let you know the steps we are taking in order to minimise the chances of the virus spreading within our homes.
We understand that moving into a care home is a big step, which is why we have introduced ‘supported admissions’ for our new residents. This is where a friend or family member can stay at our home during moving in day to help their loved one settle. They can even enjoy their first meal together. Speak to our friendly team to find out more about how we can support you every step of the way.
In addition to our high standards of infection control already in place, Ideal Carehomes has successfully launched an initiative called ‘Ideal Fresh Living’, bringing a new and continued focus on cleaning and sanitisation in direct response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Focussing our efforts on infection control is paramount and we have extra staff allocated to cleaning within the home including frequent sanitising of all surfaces as well as regular deep cleans. This is monitored with routine audits carried out by our Home Manager and Regional Director.
Our modern, purpose-built care home provides a perfect environment to implement natural ventilation into daily life, with lots of large social areas to enjoy as well as spacious bedrooms with en-suite facilities to allow plenty of personal space for each resident.
All our homes have Covid safe social rooms for visits and you can liaise with the home directly to book an appointment.*
We do understand that this is a difficult and strange time to be looking for care, but our team really are here to help. To find out more about our homes and the next steps, speak to our friendly team on 0113 385 3800.
Please see below for our regular updates and also contact details for each of our homes.
