We are confident in the processes in our home with all of our staff trained in infection control, and our staff have been brilliant in implementing this.

We are following medical advice, and if and when needed we have sufficient and appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE).

Please be reassured that our staff are trained in this practice, and we are confident that the right procedures will be followed to keep everyone as safe and well as possible.”
