COVID-19

Our top goal is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our residents, their families, and our staff. Our ongoing commitment to everyone in the Fleet Care Home community is to keep them safe as much as possible from internal and external influences.

As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating and sometimes overwhelming impact on everyone’s lives. We understand how important it is to keep our residents comfortable in all circumstances, and we put their health and well-being first in all we do.

Our COVID-19 Approach

In line with recent Government recommendations effective from April 2022, care homes in England no longer have restrictions as to the numbers of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained. LFT testing is no longer mandatory, though to protect the safety and wellbeing of our residents and teams, we would appreciate your support in continuing to do so. Appropriate guidance for using PPE must be followed whilst visiting.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Safety Procedures

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, our dedicated team has gone above and beyond to ensure everyone is safe. Many new safety measures have been implemented to guarantee that our residents can continue to live their lives as they always have done with minimal disruption.

We can help decrease the risk of COVID-19 in our community by making a few changes to our home and how we function. From keeping in line with government requirements to providing advice and support to all residents and their loved ones, our specialist team at The Fleet Care Home continues to prioritise the mental, emotional, and physical health needs of every individual.

Our Safety Procedures Involve

Our dedicated staff works tirelessly to ensure that our residents and loved ones are as protected from COVID-19 as possible.

Screen Dividers

Many of our rooms have floor-to-ceiling screens and intercoms to keep visitors and residents secure while complying with government rules. There are still some outdoor meeting locations available; please contact us for more details.

Social Distancing

To keep in line with government guidance, staff and residents are advised to keep a one metre distance where possible.

PPE

Personal protection equipment (PPE), such as aprons, face masks, and disposable gloves, are worn by our staff to reduce the risk of transmission. All of the PPE we use complies with government and local authority regulations.

Stay In Touch

If in-person visits are not available or accessible to you, then we have a range of devices and technology that enable video and phone calls to ensure our residents can stay connected with the ones they love.

Santisation

Sanitation stations have been strategically located around our home, and both residents and visitors are encouraged to use our antibacterial gel on a regular basis.

Secure Premises

Residents and their families can be assured that the Fleet Care Home is a very safe and secure care facility, with all COVID-19 safety measures being followed at all times.

Keeping Things as Normal as Possible

As a result of COVID-19, we’ve put in place a variety of measures to minimise infection rates while keeping our home as comfortable as possible. Despite the difficulties during these unprecedented times, our incredible team works above and beyond to provide a variety of COVID-19 friendly activities to keep our residents active and entertained, as we want nothing more than to lift residents’ spirits.

Ensuring Residents Keep Connected With Family

We understand the value of human interaction and support from family and friends in enhancing residents’ mental well-being; keeping residents and their loved ones connected during these trying times has never been more critical. Our residence is outfitted with a number of amenities and technologies that enable our residents to communicate with their friends and family through a variety of channels. Regardless of the obstacles we’ve encountered as a result of COVID-19, we’ll continue to work together to overcome them and ensure that everyone has all they need to stay in touch with the people who matter most to them.

A Warm Welcome Awaits

Our mission is to provide exceptional care and support to all of our residents regardless of what they may be going through, and during difficult times like these, we go above and beyond to ensure that our residents are shielded, and may continue to live the full lives they deserve. Residents should take advantage of the variety of amenities on offer throughout our luxury home, as well as our action packed activity programme created by our Activity Coordinators. Our residents are at the heart of all we do, and our team works hard to ensure that everyone is content during their stay.
