Latest Issue: October 2020
We regret to inform you that all visits remain suspended (with the exception of those residents on End of Life Care) in our Shropshire and Telford homes, as advised by the Directors of Public Health (DPH) of relevant local authorities. Corbrook Park, near Audlem continues to follow current local guidance of pre-booked socially distanced outdoor visits.
We fully acknowledge how important your visits are to the well-being of our residents. We continue working in our aim to introduce a safe and secure visiting protocol where we will be able to accommodate pre-booked visits via a dedicated safe visiting room. We will provide you with an update on this as soon as we can.
We are exceptionally grateful for your continued patience and understanding as we all work together in maintaining the safety of our residents and staff.
All our residents and staff continue to have their regular blanket testing (monthly for our residents and weekly for our staff). We also maintain stringent infection control practices in our homes. The government has made available testing kits for all residents and colleagues who work and live in care homes as part of their testing strategy.
This is a key approach as it will help identify both colleagues and residents who may have COVID 19 but are showing no symptoms whatsoever. Residents and colleagues will isolate immediately should any positive results be confirmed and follow the government advice in full. We also continue to encourage our staff to take up the antibody testing provided by the government.
