Latest Update

3rd September 2021

We understand that this remains a worrying time for relatives and those looking to move into a care home or visiting.

We are accepting new move-ins and have developed safe visiting so that relatives can maintain face to face contact with our residents. We have access to testing for all residents, staff and visitors, when required and plenty of protective equipment for all.

Visiting restrictions have now been relaxed in accordance with new government guidelines. You will still be asked to book your visit in advance and to produce a Negative Lateral Flow test before entry to the home. We also have the facility for you to take a test when you arrive.

Masks will continue to be needed to be worn inside the home but outside the home, in the gardens, masks will not be required although social distancing must still be observed.

Over 95% of our Team have been vaccinated and all residents have been offered a vaccination, with the majority having had both doses of the vaccine.

Residents who visit family, outside of the home, are no longer required to isolate on their return.

The safety and welfare of our residents, staff & visitors remains our highest priority and we are confident that we are doing everything needed to remain Coronavirus free.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oakland Care soon.
