Milkwood Care Covid-19 Response – 6th January 2021.
First of all I’d like to wish you a happy new year and thank you for all your support throughout 2020.
Milkwood Care Group has taken the difficult decision to suspend all visits to its care homes until further notice, following the news of a new strain of Coronavirus in the UK and the consequent tightening of restrictions. This will affect outdoor and indoor visits to residents, with the exception of our residents who are at end of life. Window visits can continue
While we understand how deeply upsetting this is for relatives and residents, it is crucial we act early. The new strain of COVID is reported to be significantly more infectious. That means we must do our utmost to protect residents and staff over these coming weeks and months and continue to keep our care homes as safe as possible.
On a positive note our residents and staff in some of our homes have now started to receive their vaccine.
If you have any questions please speak to your relevant Home Manager.
