How our care home has adapted to the coronavirus outbreak

The current situation we find ourselves in is highly unprecedented, and everyone has needed to make significant changes to their daily lives. Across UK care homes, more stringent measures have been put in place to restrict the spread of the virus and protect the elderly who are most at risk.

At Allenbrook Nursing & Residential Care Fordingbridge, you can rest assured that our care home is following all government guidelines in order to protect your loved ones and provide the same high level of care you have come to expect from us. If you have any questions regarding our care and response to Covid-19, please feel free to contact our team on 01425 656 589.

Reduced visiting hours

In order to protect staff, residents and their families, we made the difficult decision early on to stop all face to face visitations. Whilst this is undoubtedly difficult for everyone, this was the only way that we could both remain compliant with government regulation and ensure the wellbeing of everyone.

However, we still actively encourage regular communication, whether that is via a daily phone or video call, so our residents can stay connected with loved ones even during this difficult time. We are taking the time to keep families in the loop, so they are aware of any updates in either our procedures or the welfare of their loved one. The standard of care we provide has not been diminished in any way and residents can still expect the same level of excellent care and support.

Our gardens are seeing more use than ever!

Lockdown isn’t stopping our residents from getting out in the sun and doing the activities they enjoy, like gardening. We are very lucky to have a large, beautifully landscaped garden, which provides a slice of freedom during these challenging times. We are also still providing daily fun activities and exercise, so everyone can keep both their minds and brains active.

Situated in beautiful Hampshire near the famous New Forest, Allenbrook Nursing and Residential Care Home provides elderly people with all the care, support, companionship and security they need to live life to the full. To find out more, please contact our friendly team today on 01425 656589.
