Dear family member
I would once again like to thank you all, for your ongoing understanding and patience at this most difficult time.
Since I wrote to you on Friday last 3rd April, we have had two individual confirmed COVID – 19 cases across our group. As you know all the necessary precautions and protective equipment is in place and we are doing our utmost to ensure that it does not spread. We are fortunate in comparison to many of our neighbouring nursing homes that we have no outbreak (which is 3 cases in a 72 hour period)
This only works with the continued vigilance of our excellent staff. Where we have taken many precautions to ensure no transmission occurs. As already explained, we are fully equipped with all of the required protective equipment as we were well prepared over the past two months and had purchased our own.
As you are aware the Minister announced support for all nursing homes in both finance and professional support. The finance support I am passing on directly to our frontline staff for a three-month period as recognition of their outstanding commitment to the care of our residents.
I will continue to keep everyone updated on a weekly basis, and if you have any further questions please contact the nursing home directly.
