It was always envisaged that staff would need to return to their loved ones, albeit for a relatively short period during the current situation. Alison Stokes and Tracy Mansell have done that during the week and have been replaced by Michelle Griffiths and Emma Mansell.

As part of our stringent infection control procedures, all new entrants to the home who have been in the community will be required to wear face masks for a seven-day period.

This has been explained to the residents and is only used as a precaution. Having made considerable sacrifices to maintain our resident?s safety this is a small price to minimise any risks to both staff and residents.
