Information for Church Farm Care Visitors

The health, safety and wellbeing of our Residents and Colleagues are always our top priority. We have therefore taken action to prepare for, and respond to, the growing coronavirus outbreak in the UK.

This page details the latest advice from Church Farm Care about the steps we are taking at our homes. This information is intended for our Residents, Colleagues, and Visitors to our homes only. 

For comprehensive information about the coronavirus itself, please visit either the GOV.UK or NHS websites, or if you are concerned you or someone you are in contact with has coronavirus call 111.

Church Farm Care homes are now closed to all visitors

We have made the decision to close the homes visitors to our care homes until further notice.

  • We have not taken this decision lightly, but we know our visitors, including relatives and loved ones, would want us to do everything possible to keep the Residents in our care safe and well.
  • Phone numbers for all homes are listed on the individual home pages.

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. 

For anyone connected to a Church Farm Care home who has further questions about our response to the coronavirus, please call the Home Manager at your local home. 

We have set up SKYPE facilities to enable you to connect with your family member. you can find us by searching for the home or inputting the ID's below into the search.
