Centre's remain closed to non-essential visitors. Visitors must book an appointment

Last Updated: Wednesday 19 May
 
At SLW Ltd the health and safety of all our residents and staff is paramount, and as such, we continue to follow government advice and are closed to non-essential visiting at present. 
 
We continue to ensure best hygiene practices are in place and are followed. 

What are we doing?

  • Increased cleaning and sanitisation 
  • Daily temperature recordings 
  • Increased close monitoring of resident’s health with an emphasis on the signs and symptoms of Covid-19.
  • Lateral Flow Testing to be carried out on the day of pre-booked appointments only.
Following government changes coming into effect on the 17th of May 2021, we are supporting each service user to have 5 nominated people for indoor visits. We are also supporting residents with outdoor visits with their nominated person.
 
Please contact the home for further information and for visiting information.

What is considered an “Essential Visit”?

An essential visit is one where it is imperative that a friend or relative is allowed to see their loved one in the circumstances where their loved one may be dying or where they may help to ease significant personal distress.

Visiting Relatives

We are pleased to announce that we will begin offer rapid testing which will provide some meaningful internal visits for you and your relative who is in our care. We anticipate that testing will be available from 2nd December (facilities, equipment and training allowing).

Initially, we will be allowing each resident two internal visits per week which can be by two different family members. All visitors must be tested prior to every visit which will occur on-site. Visits will be limited to 30 minutes and only one per resident at any time. No children under the age of 18 will be allowed, and where possible, visits will take place in a communal designated area.
