As you may have seen, we haven't posted for a little while, that is because unfortunately, we have had an outbreak of Covid-19 in the home.
To say that this has been a difficult month, or even a difficult year for that matter would be an understatement.
The truth is, it's been absolutely devastating.
As many people that work and care in care homes and hospitals will know, staff this year have faced unique pressures to keep the virus out of care homes. They've followed the strictest guidance available to them, and yet, unfortunately, we join the many homes who have been affected by an outbreak.
I wanted to record a short video, with an update and a message of thanks to the relatives, residents, authorities and the community around Shinfield View Care Home who have offered kind messages and their support. You can watch it on Facebook and read the comments.
General Manager, Shinfield View Care Home.
N.B. This video was filmed in our Outdoor Visiting Facility, and with no other persons in the facility at that time. The Day Lodge was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before and after making this short video. We hope you understand and thank you.
