COVID-19

At Pottersway House Care Home, the well-being and safety of our residents remain our top priority. We understand the ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, and we want to assure you that we are taking comprehensive measures to protect our residents and staff.

Here’s an overview of our COVID-19 protocols:

  • Infection Prevention and Control (IPC): We adhere to strict IPC guidelines established by health authorities. This includes regular handwashing, proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and thorough disinfection of surfaces.
  • Resident and Staff Testing: We follow recommended testing protocols for residents and staff, helping to identify and isolate potential cases quickly.
  • Vaccinations: We strongly encourage vaccinations for all residents and staff who are eligible. Vaccinations significantly reduce the risk of severe illness and hospitalization from COVID-19.
  • Social Distancing and Isolation Measures: We implement social distancing measures and isolation protocols when necessary to safeguard residents at high risk.
  • Communication and Transparency: We are committed to keeping families informed of any developments regarding COVID-19 within the care home. We provide regular updates and encourage open communication.

By working together, we can create a safe and healthy environment for our residents at Pottersway House.

Our COVID-19 Approach

Care homes in England can make risk-based decisions as to whether face masks are required to be worn. Following a risk assessment, our care home has made the decision to remove the universal wearing of masks. It is a personal choice whether visitors still wish to wear a mask and people receiving care can ask staff to wear face masks; our staff will continue to work in whichever way makes our residents most comfortable.

We continue to no longer have restrictions as to the number of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained.

At any time, the decision to not wear face masks can be changed as determined by the Home Manager, company, local or national healthcare agencies. COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National, and Local Healthcare Agencies may also change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Our dedicated staff have gone above and beyond to ensure that residents and their loved ones are as protected against COVID-19 as they can be.
