Dear family member

Another weekly update to all our families, with our continued thanks and appreciation to you on your kindness and understanding.

As you know this week, we had all our staff and residents tested for COVID-19 across our five centres. This is a very welcome development as it allows us to manage the situation and take all the necessary precautions as directed. We have first received the results of one centre back late yesterday, so we are in the process of informing each individual resident, family and staff member now. This looks positive so far and we should have the remaining results in the coming days.

As you know where we have any confirmed or suspected cases, we have a specific area where these are cared for and then can return to their usual room following completion of treatment.

We have ongoing media coverage of nursing homes again this week. Please be assured that all our homes are well supported, and staffing is in place to maintain a safe service. Our staff continue to work to cover shifts. which we really appreciate. We have also received more ipad’s as our activity staff will be engaging more with you over the coming days to maintain good contact.

We will continue to update you on a regular basis and rest assured that no news is good news.

Yours sincerely

Noel Mulvihill
Chief Executive
