COVID-19

The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents, staff and their families is of the utmost priority to us at Trinity House Care Home. We are committed to our residents and the community we have created and we will do all we can to ensure everyone is safe, protected and healthy. 


It is undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, an immense impact on everyone’s lives. Everyone at Trinity House Care Home is working extremely hard to mitigate the effects, keeping the overall welfare of our residents at the heart of everything we do.

Care with Health, Safety & Wellbeing at the Core

We prioritise installing and carrying out preventive measures against Covid-19; it always has and continues to remain critical to us that any new processes established and implemented into the home have minimal, if any, impact on the exceptional around-the-clock care that we are known for. We continue to ensure that we maintain the greatest levels of safety, hygiene, and adherence to government regulations while maintaining a warm and welcoming environment.

It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.

A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.

For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly. 

Providing Support to Residents & Loved Ones

We are extremely proud of our team during the Covid-19 pandemic; responding professionally and cooperatively to prioritise the health and safety of our residents. We have introduced a whole host of safety measures to our home, so our residents can continue living their lives in a happy and safe way.

By implementing these preventative measures we have been able to reduce the risk of Covid-19 in our community. Our team at Trinity House Care Home are prioritising not only the health needs of our residents, but their emotional and mental needs too; from keeping up-to-date with government guidance to providing advice to all of our residents and their loved ones.

Our Measures Include

From the very start of COVID-19, our team members have, and continue to dedicate themselves to ensuring residents and loved ones are as protected as they can possibly be. Following Government guidelines, we have implemented a number of preventative measures including:

Screen Dividers

We have dedicated areas within our home that have ] had floor-to-ceiling screens and intercoms installed allowing residents to continue seeing their loved ones, in the safest way possible.

Social Distancing

As advised by the government, residents and employees must keep a distance of at least one metre between them.

PPE

To further ensure the rate of infection is minimised, our staff are required to use personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes, but is not limited to, face masks, aprons, and disposable gloves.

Remote Contact

Whenever possible, we encourage our residents and their family and friends to arrange video calls to maintain regular contact. Residents have access to a range of devices and technology that will ensure contacting their loved ones is easy.

Santisation

Sanitisation stations have been implemented all throughout our home; we encourage residents, staff and visitors to regularly wash their hands and use the antibacterial gel.

Secure Premises

Our home is an extremely safe and secure facility where residents and their loved ones can feel confident that preventative COVID-19 measures are in place, and government guidance is respected.

Maintaining a Safe & Welcoming Setting

During such times, above all else, the health, safety and wellbeing of our residents is the most important thing to us. Whilst we have implemented a number of precautions within our home in order to reduce the effects of COVID-19, we are still providing our high standards of around-the-clock care and making sure our home remains comfortable and welcoming. Despite this challenging time, our team has worked hard and have committed themselves to be able to offer a range of COVID-19 friendly activities, to keep our residents active and entertained.

Keeping Loved ones Connected

We understand that human connection is extremely important to all of us, especially our residents, now more than ever. These unprecedented times are difficult enough without having further limitations when it comes to communication, which is why we have made sure our home is well-equipped with a variety of devices and facilities that enable residents to keep connected with their friends and family. We continue to work hard to ensure that communication within our home is never challenged and that residents know that they can always rely on us.

Offering a Full & Enriching Life at Trinity House

From the events we host to the facilities we provide, we strive to ensure our residents feel inspired and valued every single day. We believe that building strong links and continuing to foster close connections with our residents and those closest to them is extremely beneficial to us here at Trinity House Care Home. Due to the exceptional work from our Activity Coordinators, there is no shortage of things to do or activities to take part in; residents are presented with a varied programme, leaving them spoilt for choice and able to enjoy something new every day.
