6th July 2020
Despite the recent relaxation seen across the country in terms of lockdown and social distancing, there are no changes being implemented in relation to visiting practices across the Active Care Group at this present time.
As lockdown easements are underway, the Government is yet to provide guidance for the Adult Social Care industry on what happens next in care homes.
Since 18 March 2020 we have not allowed visitors, other than clinicians, to visit our residential homes, services and supported living accommodation. We await further government strategy and guidance to support us with any adjustment to this situation.
Until this guidance is available, we want to thank you for your continued support and understanding, as we concentrate on protecting the most vulnerable people within our care.
Throughout this time, all our teams have endeavoured to provide alternative opportunities for family members and friends to safely communicate with the people we support, either via the introduction of video messaging or social distance compliant visits. We know this makes a difference to people’s mental health and wellbeing.
