The Covid-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the interaction that residents are allowed with their loved ones in care homes across the UK which is why Millennium care UK made the quick decision early this year to provide the next best thing – safe visiting lodges outside the main buildings at homes in the group across Lancashire.
Following the announcement made by Boris Johnson yesterday evening Millennium care would like to reassure all family and friends of residents that visits can continue under Government guidance which states-
You can leave home to visit someone who is in a care home (if permitted under care home guidance) Visits to care homes can take place with arrangements such as substantial screens, visiting pods, or behind windows. contact indoor visits are not allowed. No visits will be permitted in the event of an outbreak.
Thanks to the wonderful safe visitation lodges at Millennium care hundreds of residents have stayed connected with their loved ones and have been able to see them – while socially-distanced and safe – over the last few months and this can continue throughout national lockdown.
If you did not receive an email update regarding visiting policy during national lockdown please find attached below, you can contact your home Manager to add your email address to our database.
