Plenty of Personal Protective Equipment for all - we acted quickly and early and we've always had plenty of PPE
Robust Infection Control Procedures - and we've employed extra housekeeping staff.
Experienced Leaders and Managers - early on the the pandemic the quick thinking actions of our lead nurse at Skylarks saved the lives of 13 people who live with us. Read more here where we were featured in the national press

We keep everyone connected through many different channels, including Facebook, Private Facebook Groups, Instagram, Newsletters, Skype, Zoom, Teams, and Phone Calls.
