COVID-19

Due to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had such a devastating and, at times, overwhelming impact on everyone’s lives, we’re delighted to be taking measures to restore some feeling of normalcy to life here at The Hazelwell Care Home

The health of each and every one of our residents, their families, and our staff is our first priority, and we will continue to do everything we can to keep everyone safe and well at The Hazelwell Care Home. We are absolutely overjoyed to be able to welcome visitors and new residents to join our Hazelwell Care Home family.

Putting Your Health, Safety & Wellbeing First

Our Activities Team at The Hazelwell Care Home is working incredibly hard to ensure that each and every one of our residents may keep an active social life while still managing to adhere to the strictest infection control guidelines issued by the government. Using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), screen dividers, and hand-washing stations all throughout the home, our employees have been able to continue providing great treatment.

 Our employees at The Hazelwell Care Home are committed to assisting our residents and loved ones through these trying times and providing constant reassurance and support to their families and friends. While prevention is, of course, still a top concern, it has always been absolutely necessary that any actions we’ve taken here at The Hazelwell Care Home have taken have little, if any, impact on the exceptional round-the-clock service that we are known for.

As from 11 November 2021, In line with Government regulations all care home workers, and anyone entering a care home, will need to be fully vaccinated unless they are exempt under the regulations. It is the Registered persons (or those acting on behalf of the registered person) to check that all persons wishing to enter the care home have received a full course of vaccination. This includes checking, for example, care home staff, health care professionals, CQC inspectors, tradespeople, hairdressers and beauticians.

Preventative Actions at The Hazelwell Care Home

Our dedicated employees here at The Hazelwell Care Home have always gone above and beyond to keep our residents’ lives safe and fulfilled no matter what. However, since the outbreak of COVID-19, our teams have been nothing short of incredible. Additional safety measures have been implemented all throughout our home, and in every single one of our facilities to guarantee that our residents may continue living their lives as they have in the past with minimal disruption.

All of these steps we’ve introduced are intended to have the least amount of impact on residents and their everyday lives; by making a few little changes to our daily routines, we can reduce the danger of COVID-19 in our community tenfold. From remaining up to date with government standards to providing guidance to all of our residents and their loved ones, our teams here at The Hazelwell Care Home constantly prioritise the mental, emotional, and physical health needs of all of our residents.

Our Measures Include

Our compassionate, caring and absolutely incredible staff have always gone above and beyond to ensure that residents and their loved ones are as safe as possible. This sentiment from our teams towards our residents has only increased as we’ve continued to fight against COVID-19. Here are just some of the measures we here at The Hazelwell Care Home have in place to ensure the safety of our residents.

Consistent Use of PPE

To reduce the risk of infection, all members of the team wear personal protective equipment (PPE), such as face masks, aprons, and disposable gloves. All PPE complies with government and local authority regulations.

We strongly encourage residents and their friends and family to use the internet to make great video calls to one another as much as they can. We’ve invested in cutting-edge virtual meeting equipment so you can keep coming back and know you’ll never miss a moment or a memory from your loved ones.

Putting Our Resident’s Health & Safety First

Despite the difficulties our team members have faced over the course of the last 18 months or so, they have worked tirelessly to provide a variety of COVID-19 appropriate activities to keep our residents active and entertained, and we here at The Hazelwell Care Home truly couldn’t be more grateful. 

Our first and top focus at The Hazelwell Care Home has always been the health, safety, and well-being of each and every one of our residents. In response to COVID-19, we’ve put in place a number of measures aimed at lowering infection rates while also managing to keep our residents as comfortable as possible.

Keeping Everyone in Touch

Our residents are more than welcome to use any number of our devices in order to video call their friends and family outside of The Hazelwell Care Home. Our home is well equipped with WiFi and an abundance of ways to connect, and despite the challenges we’ve had to face as a result of COVID-19, we’re working together to address them each individually. We’ll keep working around-the-clock to ensure that everyone has a plethora of options for staying connected to the people closest to them, and the people who matter most.

Keeping our residents, their friends and their family members connected during these extraordinary times has never been more important, and we always want to face our challenges both calmly and head-on. We really do recognise the real importance of social connection, especially in a time of worry and uncertainty. The support that loved ones give to our residents make an enormous difference to their mental and physical well-being, so keeping residents and their friends and family connected during these extraordinary times has truly never been more important.
