COVID-19

We are delighted to be able to open our doors to visitors and welcome new residents. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating and, at times, overwhelming impact on everyone’s lives, we are only too happy to be making steps back to get life at Amberley Care Home back to normality. 

The health of our residents, their families and our staff remains our top priority and it is our ongoing commitment to everyone in the Amberley Care Home community to do everything within our power to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Extraordinary Care during Tough Times

We have maintained the highest levels of safety, hygiene and respect for Government guidelines, all the while maintaining a warm and friendly environment. While preventative measures remain a priority, it has always remained imperative that any measures implemented have minimal, if any, effect on the outstanding around-the-clock care that we pride ourselves on. Our teams at Amberley Care Home remain dedicated to supporting our residents and loved ones through these unprecedented times and are a continual source of reassurance for their families and friends.

As of the 15th December, new social care regulations enforced by the Government means that residents in care homes are enabled to be supported by one essential care giver and allowed three nominated people to visit. Adherence to testing prior to visiting in line with the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies will be required. PPE guidelines must be complied with at all times during their visit. Those visiting will not have to show proof of vaccination, however it is encouraged. Members of staff at Amberley Care Home will be required to take a lateral flow test daily and a PCR test weekly, and residents will also receive regular testing. Relatives are welcome to take their loved one out of the home, but upon return they must take a lateral flow test daily for two weeks and isolation may be required if any results come back positive or inconclusive. All trips out of the home must be pre-booked with the care home.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly. 

 

Preventative Measures

A host of additional safety measures at our facilities have been put in place to ensure our residents continue to live their lives as they always have, with minimal inconvenience. All new safety measures are designed to have as little impact upon residents and their day-to-day lives; by making just a few adjustments to our daily lives we can mitigate the risk of COVID-19 in our community.

Our specialists at Amberley Care Home are prioritising the mental, emotional, and physical health needs of all residents; from staying up-to-date with government regulations to providing advice to all residents and their loved ones.

Our Activities Team here at Amberley Care Home is working hard to ensure that an active social life can continue to be enjoyed, while maintaining the highest standards of infection control.
