COVID-19

We at Etive House Care Home understand the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on everyone’s lives, but we are excited to begin the process of returning to normalcy.

The health of our residents, visitors, and employees will remain a key focus at Etive House Care Home. COVID-19 has had a negative influence on care homes, thus we will continue to make every effort to keep everyone in our home healthy and safe at all times.

Incredible Teams That Put Resident Safety First

The staff at Etive House Care Home will perform COVID-19 preventative measures to the highest standard they can. We constantly work hard to ensure that these preventative measures are carried out, and to make sure that they have the most minimal impact on the disruption of our residents’ everyday lives. We will always ensure that our residents are receiving the highest levels of safety and hygiene, all within adherence and in accordance with government regulations, while also ensuring that our residents are entirely comfortable with their surroundings. Our compassionate team is committed to supporting both future residents and loved ones during these uncertain times, as well as those who are currently choosing to reside with us here at Etive House Care Home. 

It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take an LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.

A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.

For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party. At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change.

Safety Measures

The health, safety, and well-being of our residents and employees will continue to be a major priority for us. We’ve taken a variety of safeguards at our residences since the outbreak of COVID-19 to ensure that our residents may continue to live their lives as they like with minimal inconvenience. We were able to limit COVID-19 transmission in our home by making simple changes to our everyday operations.

Our caring staff at Etive House Care Home will go above and beyond to ensure our residents’ general well-being, from following regulatory standards to assisting residents and their loved ones at difficult times. To allow residents to continue with their hobbies, our Activity Coordinators have developed the highest standard of infection prevention throughout the home, especially considering solo and group activities.

Implemented Safety Measures:

Our staff at Etive House Care Home has worked carefully to ensure that our residents and visitors are as safe as possible from COVID-19.

Screen Dividers

There are meeting locations outside, but there are also rooms with floor to ceiling screens and intercoms where loved ones may visit residents in a secure environment.

Social Distancing

To limit the possibility of transmission, social separation is implemented throughout our home. When possible, residents and workers shall be separated by one metre.

PPE

Every member of the staff wears personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times, including face masks, aprons, and disposable gloves, in compliance with government rules, to keep infection rates to a low.

Remote Visits

We can set up internet video conferencing tools for people and their family members to communicate. We’ve invested in cutting-edge technology to ensure that no moments go unnoticed for long.

Santisation

We encourage families and guests to use the many sanitisation stations located throughout the facility on a frequent basis, just as much as our residents do.

Secure Premises

We will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety measures, so Etive House Care Home will remain a safe and secure environment.

Maintaining Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Our first focus will always be to keep the residents of Etive House Care Home safe and healthy. We will take all necessary efforts to reduce infection rates while maintaining a welcoming and pleasant environment at our house. During the times when visits outside the home were forbidden, our professional activities coordinators provide a range of activities to keep residents occupied and entertained.

Keeping Connected With Loved Ones

It’s never been more crucial to stay in touch with those closest to you. We believe that our residents’ general well-being depends on them feeling loved and supported by their friends and family. Many electronic devices such as tablets and ‘Alexa’ tools are available at our facility, allowing residents to communicate with their loved ones over the internet. Despite the hurdles that COVID-19 has posed, our staff works constantly to overcome them and ensure that everyone succeeds.
