Any new admission from hospital will require to have two negative tests prior to the agreed admission date. Any other new admissions will require to have at least one negative test. All new residents will be required to isolate for 14 days, however at the home we use this time to help our residents familiarise themselves with the home and the team. They are greatly supported by our team every day including set up of activities to make the most of your day and time at the home.
