Protecting our Residents and Colleagues
Please be assured that Church Farm Care is treating this matter with the utmost seriousness and comprehensive contingency plans are in place in the event of a coronavirus outbreak at a home.
In response to the growing UK coronavirus outbreak we have created a dedicated steering group. Led by our Head of Operations, this group comprises senior managers from across the business who meet regularly to review and further develop our plans, reflecting the evolving situation.
The steering group meet regularly and is monitoring and reacting to the latest guidance issued by the UK Government and Devolved Administrations, the NHS, and public health bodies.
The steering group has already taken action, including working to secure the medical supplies we may need in the event of an outbreak in a home, and developing and implementing the policies and protocols needed to make sure Church Farm Care homes can continue to provide high-quality care during this time.
All Home Managers and Colleagues have been informed of the steps we are taking and how they can help prevent the spread of infection. This includes completing infection control training.
This page will be updated to reflect the latest information and advice regarding any additional steps we are taking to safeguard the health of our Residents and Colleagues.
