Welcoming New Residents at Albany Lodge Nursing Home

Ensuring a safe environment for all

As we continue to welcome new residents into Acacia Care Centre as usual, our highest priority is to ensure their safety and wellbeing. We have been working with the UK coronavirus vaccination programme and have implemented several robust health and safety protocols to provide peace of mind for residents and their loved ones.

 

 

The UK coronavirus vaccination programme at Albany Lodge Nursing Home

 

We have been working with the Government’s UK vaccination programme to ensure the safety of residents and staff.

Our staff have received full support to ensure they are vaccinated, and our Care Home Managers are taking proactive steps to be prepared for vaccinations and avoid any potential delays.

Our nurses have the skills to vaccinate residents as we have rolled out vaccinations across all of our homes.

Protecting residents, staff and visitors against Coronavirus

 

We have adopted a whole-home testing approach to reduce resident self-isolation on admission.

We have also implemented the following robust infection control measures to prevent the risk of transmission:

Temperature checking of staff before coming on duty and all essential visitors to the home

Regular Testing of Staff and Residents

Enhanced cleaning

All staff and residents at Albany Lodge Nursing Home have access to personal protective equipment. Our in-house procurement team also has access to further PPE supplies if required.

Installation of Aura Air air purification units – clinically proven to destroy coronavirus and providing safer air for care homes.

Taking measures to keep people connected

 

We’re doing everything we can to ensure residents at Albany Lodge Nursing Home, stay connected to their loved ones in the safest manner possible during this difficult time. This includes:

  • Communal living areas that allow residents and their loved ones to meet safely whilst maintaining social distancing.
  • Video conferencing facilities for regular virtual contact

Our safe visit approach includes:

  • Provision of safe visit pods or rooms with enhanced cleaning between visits
  • Restricting visits to one identified member of a household visiting
  • Using floor to ceiling screening
  • A robust visiting roster that leaves time between visits for cleaning
  • Continued compassionate visits to continue for End of Life residents – full use of PPE for those visiting
  • Promotion of window visits
  • Sending you regular updates about the changing circumstances and the policies we adopt
