Cedars Care Group would like to update visitors and offer reassurance that we are doing everything practicable to keep our residents and employees safe during this unprecedented spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we would like to confirm that all of our homes have regular testing to ensure we are keeping COVID free.
Our current position, in line with the Government and Care Home Guidance on visiting is that as from Friday 18th September 2020 we will no longer be able to facilitate visits to any of our Care Homes. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and we understand that this situation will be upsetting and frustrating for our residents and their loved ones. The Director of Public Health has been monitoring the outbreak rates in our local areas, alongside regional colleagues and unfortunately the increase in cases mean that it has become unacceptable to permit visitors into our homes. Our priority remains keeping our residents safe and well, and preventing the spread of infection within our homes. We will be continuing to monitor the Government guidelines due to the fluidity of this situation and any changes will be communicated out to our residents’ main point of contacts in the usual way. Information will also be updated on this page as and when changes need to be made.
We are still encouraging our residents families to use Skype or other forms of video calling in order to keep in visual touch with their loved ones. We are also more than happy for families to come and have window visits where possible.
For anyone who is interested in applying for one of our vacancies, we would like to confirm that we are still conducting interviews via zoom and employing new staff members. If an interview is booked for you, details of how it is going to be carried out will be advised accordingly as the process will vary between each home.
Please be assured that we will keep you updated as soon as we have any new information to share and we would like to thank you for your support at this time. For your further information please see our COVID-19 risk assessment to reassure you that we are taking all necessary precautions required at this time. Covid 19 Risk assessment
