COVID-19

We are thrilled to be able to open our doors and welcome new residents to our home. While we acknowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on everyone’s lives, we intend to return to normalcy slowly but surely.

At Boclair Care Home, the health of our future residents, their families, and our staff will be our main focus. We recognise the life-altering effects of COVID-19, therefore it will be our continual commitment to everyone in our community to do everything possible to keep them healthy and safe.

Boclair Care Home Is Always By Your Side

The entire crew at Boclair Care Home will continue to prioritise preventative measures. It’s vital to us that the COVID-19 safety procedures performed at home have as little influence as possible on our unrivalled around-the-clock care. We strive to maintain the highest levels of safety, hygiene, and adherence to government guidance while maintaining a warm and welcoming environment. Boclair Care Home’s staff is dedicated to assisting our residents and their families at this difficult time.

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.

While outside meeting spots will be available, our internal spaces have been outfitted with floor to ceiling screens and intercoms to allow prospective residents to visit loved ones in a safe and secure manner.

Social Distancing

Social distancing will be established throughout our home in accordance with government regulations. To reduce the risk of transmission, residents and employees will maintain a distance of at least 1 metre between them.

PPE

To make sure that the rate of infection will be kept to a minimum, every member of staff will use personal protective equipment (PPE), this includes face masks, aprons and disposable gloves in accordance with government and local authority guidelines.

Remote Visits

We can arrange for communication between residents and their loved ones via online apps. We have invested in the latest video call technology so you will never miss a moment.

Santisation

There will be many sanitisation stations available throughout our building, where future residents and visitors will be encouraged to regularly use our hand sanitiser.

Preserving Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Our dedicated activities team will provide a variety of activities to keep our residents busy and entertained during a time where visits outside the home are limited.

Keeping As Connected As Possible

Staying in touch with those closest to you has never been more crucial. We believe receiving love and support from friends and family is essential for our residents’ mental and physical well-being. Which is why we will provide a variety of electronic devices to enable residents to video call their loved ones. Despite the challenges COVID-19 has presented, we will work collectively to overcome them and come out the other side together.
