Taking a tour
Whether you’re looking to stay with us permanently, or for a short break, we’re delighted that we can now invite you to take a show round of the home in person, subject to testing and safety guidelines. Simply book a tour with the home manager once you’ve made your enquiry.
We can also provide a virtual show round if you’d prefer. Either way, we’re keen to show you what daily life is like here and for you to meet our friendly team.
If you decide following your visit that you or your loved one would like to move into the home we’ll organise an assessment either face to face – with PPE and socially distanced – or conducted virtually to make sure we can meet all of your care needs.
Ensuring residents’ safety and wellbeing is our absolute priority.
Changes to government guidance mean that if you or your loved one have had at least two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, you won’t need to self-isolate on arrival at the care home, subject to meeting certain criteria.
Our friendly team will discuss every area of moving-in with you in detail to make sure you and your loved-one know exactly what to expect and feel confident, safe and welcomed when coming to live with us.
We understand how important visits are for everyone and we follow government guidance in welcoming regular visits from a limited number of family and friends, supported by PPE and testing.
Residents can also nominate an Essential Care Giver who is able to visit more frequently and for longer, while following the same testing and PPE safety measures as our care teams.
We have COVID-safe arrangements in place for indoor and outdoor visiting. We’ve also invested significantly in technology – such as Skype and FaceTime– so you can stay in regular touch.
Of course, visiting remains subject to changes in government guidance and local health protection restrictions in response to transmission rates and variants of concern. We will always permit visits in exceptional circumstances.
Each of our homes is different and you’ll have the opportunity to speak directly to the manager of the care home you’re interested in.
Our homes were among the first in the country to take part in the government’s care home testing programme in Summer 2020 – and we’ve been regularly testing colleagues and residents since.
