Covid 19 Statement
The health, safety and well-being of our residents, visitors and staff is paramount, and we can assure you that your priorities regarding safety, care, cleanliness, and enjoyment are ours too.
We take this responsibility very seriously and as such, we have implemented robust infection control measures in line with Government and PHW (Public Health Wales) advice to ensure the safety of everyone who visits, lives and works within our home.
These measures include but are not limited to:
Symptomatic multiplex testing for residents and staff
Vaccinating and offering booster vaccines to residents and team
Our visiting arrangements are detailed below, however if you have any questions regarding this, or our response to Covid 19 - please contact us
From 7th September 2022 the requirement for visitors to wear face masks has been removed.
Visits will continue to be via pre booked appointment only, except in the event of an emergency or end of life care, under these circumstances, please contact us to discuss.
