06/04/2020 Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Last updated 06/04/2020

We want to thank everyone for supporting the new and stringent measures we have implemented across our Homes, in line with advice from central government and local health authorities.

Visits remain limited to absolutely essential visits only and by arrangement with the Home Manager until further notice. We realise that this is a difficult time for family and friends, but our sole aim is to protect and safeguard our residents and staff.

We have provided additional resources like iPads across our Homes so residents can live chat with their loved ones. This is proving so popular so please bear with us if you have experienced a delay in getting through. If you would like to schedule a call, please email the Home Manager. 

The welfare of our staff remains paramount and we’ve implemented several additional precautions to help keep everyone as safe as possible. We would like to say a huge thank you to our staff who are working tirelessly to keep spirits up in the Home. We have been overwhelmed by their determination, positivity and passion.

We are currently looking for more kind and compassionate people who want to make a difference in these challenging times. If you know someone who is looking for work – either as a stop gap or to start a new career, we want to help. Previous experience of working in the health care sector isn’t essential, just great life skills. Come and be part of our friendly team in one of our six Care Homes, simply go online to view vacancies and apply - www.morriscare.co.uk/careers.
