Further to the recent announcement by the Health Minister, facilitating contact with your loved ones will need to be formally risk assessed to ensure that visiting can happen in the safest way possible. Guidelines have just been received which will need to be considered carefully. Communication around how the organisation will commence visiting will be issued at the start of next week.

Visiting will remained closed until then, however we would encourage virtual visiting and telephone contact with the Homes to continue, as we know that this has worked really well so far. Our main focus will always be the safety of all residents and staff within our care. Our staff teams have been superb and continue to demonstrate their dedication and commitment in keeping your loved ones protected at this time.

Many thanks for your continued support, understanding and patience.
