As you are all aware, the Christmas period is rapidly approaching, with resident activities being developed.

At the same time, staff rotas are almost complete in order to give staff the maximum notice to allow them to plan their own family activities.

I think the best present we could give to the staff is for national infection rates to fall so that the necessity to wear masks will be removed.

At least someone has thought of a festive use for surgical masks. Hopefully, they have not been used before.

It would be appreciated if families could let us know if their loved ones will be celebrating Christmas with their families or at the home at the earliest opportunity to assist in future planning.

Here’s thanking you all in anticipation.
