Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 6

Milkwood Care Covid-19 Response – 29th Match 2021.
As of the 8th March we have opened every one of our homes to internal visits and have policies in place for this that acknowledge the latest Government guidance in England and Wales. Our visiting guidance remains necessarily cautious, and we will monitor the situation as we increase indoor visits.
Our key points include-
- There will be a nominated visitor for each individual resident.
- The nominated visitor will undergo LFD testing when they visit the home.
- The nominated visitor will be allowed to hold hands with their loved one.
- We will supply PPE to be worn by visitors.
Outdoor visits, POD visits and window visits will continue along with palliative care visits. Some homes may not be able to have visits due to an outbreak, but all families will be informed.
We would like to thank you for the continued support, patience and understanding during this time and very much look forward to welcoming you inside our homes again.
