COVID-19

At The Ashton, we are aware of the significance that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on everyone’s lives, however, we are thrilled to finally start the return back to normality.

At The Ashton Care Home, the health of our residents, visitors, and our staff will continue to be a top priority. COVID-19 has had a detrimental impact on care homes, therefore it will be our ongoing commitment to ensure everyone in our home remains healthy and safe at all times.

Our COVID-19 Approach

In line with recent Government recommendations effective from April 2022, care homes in England no longer have restrictions as to the numbers of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained. LFT testing is no longer mandatory, though to protect the safety and wellbeing of our residents and teams, we would appreciate your support in continuing to do so. Appropriate guidance for using PPE must be followed whilst visiting.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Safety Measures

Our residents’ and staffs’ health, safety and well-being will remain a top priority of ours. Since the pandemic, we have implemented a number of safety precautions at our residence to ensure that our residents can continue to live their lives the way that suits them with minimal disruption. We have been able to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 in our home by implementing small changes to our regular routines.

From adhering to regulatory standards to supporting residents and their loved ones during difficult times, our loving team at The Ashton will do everything in their power to ensure our residents’ overall well-being is being looked after. Our Activity Coordinator has implemented the highest standard of infection control during home activities to allow residents to continue with their hobbies.

Implemented Safety Measures:

At The Ashton Care Home, our staff has worked tirelessly to make sure that residents and their visitors are as protected from COVID-19 to the highest degree.

Screen Dividers

Meeting spots outside are available, however, there are rooms fitted with floor to ceiling screens and intercoms for loved ones to visit residents in a safe environment.

Social Distancing

Social distancing is put in place throughout our home to reduce the risk of transmission. Residents and staff will have 1 metre distance between them where feasible.

PPE

To keep infection rates to a minimum, every staff member uses personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times, including face masks, aprons and disposable gloves in accordance with government guidelines.

Stay In Touch

If in-person visits are not available or accessible to you, then we have a range of devices and technology that enable video and phone calls to ensure our residents can stay connected with the ones they love.

Santisation

There are many sanitisation stations placed throughout the building, and we encourage residents and visitors to regularly use them.

Secure Premises

The Ashton Care Home will remain a safe and secure place to be, as we will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety measures.

Maintaining Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Our top priority will be to keep residents of The Ashton Care Home safe and in good health at all times. We will take all necessary safety precautions to lower infection rates while preserving a warm and inviting atmosphere in our home. Our dedicated Activities Coordinator provides a variety of activities to keep residents content and entertained during times when visits outside the home are prohibited. 

Keeping Connected With Loved Ones

Keeping in contact with those closest to you has never been more important. We believe feeling the love and support from friends and family is crucial for our residents’ overall wellbeing. At our home, we have many electronic devices that allow residents to talk to their loved ones online if in-person visits aren’t an option. Despite the challenges COVID-19 has brought, our staff works tirelessly to overcome them and for everyone to get through it together.
