Keeping residents and staff safe during UK Coronavirus crisis
At Keate House the welfare and safety of our residents and colleagues is always our main priority and never more so during the current time. The recent UK outbreak of Coronavirus and the latest government guidance now means that all visits to the home from relatives, friends and volunteers are suspended, but our high quality care continues as we put even more stringent hygiene and infection control procedures in place.
The only exceptions to the home’s visitor restrictions are for essential medical visits or for exceptional circumstances agreed in advance with the Home Manager.
As we appreciate that the new restrictions are very difficult, we ask and thank everyone for their full support and patience in following them.
Our team is working hard to keep day to day life as normal as possible for all our residents, with social interaction, daily activities and entertainment being a key priority. Residents are being encouraged and supported in making regular telephone and video calls as well as emails and letters, to stay in touch with their loved ones.
The team at Keate House would like to thank all those in our care as well as their relatives and friends for their continued support at this difficult time. Malcolm, Diane and Mathew would also like to recognise and thank all the dedicated team for their passion and commitment in delivering high quality care as well as outstanding hygiene standards, at this challenging time.
Please check the Keate House website for latest updates which reflect any developments or changes to guidance.
