Update: Detailed information about our policies, how you can visit and what we’re doing to keep people safe in our dedicated Covid-19 section.
At SLW the health and safety of all our residents and staff is paramount, and as such, following government advice we are closed to non-essential visiting.
We would like you to know that we are monitoring the situation extremely closely and as a team we are following all advice from Public Health England, and ensuring best hygiene practices are in place and are followed.
What are we doing?
- Daily briefings and enhanced operating protocols
- Increased cleaning and sanitisation
- Increased close monitoring of resident’s health with an emphasis on the signs and symptoms of Covid-19
- Arranging for alternative ways for residents to maintain contact with their families and friends.
We appreciate these are worrying times, but this decision and these measures are essential to protect us all.
We will keep you all updated with any changes.
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.
