Our response to

coronavirus

We are continuously monitoring government regulations regarding coronavirus on a national and regional level in order to safeguard our residents and employees.

We also want families of our residents to be informed and confident that we are providing the best care for their loved one.

With Coronavirus regulations changing, we aim to keep this page updated with any changes happening at our Millennium care homes.

Concerned about covid?

If you have a resident staying with one of our care homes and would like to speak to a member of our team about how we are protecting your loved one during the pandemic, we are more than happy to speak with you.

Are you still admitting new residents?

We are working with hospitals, health care professionals, local authorities and family members to offer safe admissions into our homes.

To ensure the safety of other residents and staff, we do require a negative covid test result and the resident will be isolated in their room for seven days.

Are you performing covid tests?

Covid tests are performed at all of our care homes for staff and residents as per Government guidelines. Currently, these are done on a weekly basis for employees and monthly for our residents.

Can I visit a relative in care?

As you can understand, the safety of our residents is our top priority and therefore we are limiting visits to family members during the pandemic and following closely to government guidelines.

Many of our homes now provide video calls with residents to keep in touch with loved ones, however with many of our areas going back into local lockdown we advise you to check with your specific home for visitations.

For our Worthington Lake and Lakeside homes, visits can also be booked into our outdoor facility, The Rawsthorne Retreat for secure visits in-person.

 

What about residents wellbeing?

Part of our care commitment to our residents is by taking care of their wellbeing and happiness.

A big part of this is undertaken by our Activities Coordinators in each home who provide meaningful activities for our residents and keep spirits and morale high during this time so the residents don’t feel isolated during the lockdown period.

In short, residents and staff in our care homes are like family and we look after our families. Together they share a mutual respect and care for one another and this means that during this time there is always somebody checking in on a resident.
