Please be assured that we are doing our upmost to get things in place as soon as possible, so our visits can commence. 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.
