Visiting Update - 26 July 2021

Runwood Homes are delighted to welcome any number of Named Visitors inside our homes to mirror the Government guidelines. Visitors will still be required to provide a negative LFT test on the day of each visit, including children above the age of 11, and wear the PPE requested by the care home. 

This guidance sets out Runwood Homes' guidelines to support safe visiting, which mirrors the Government guidance:
 
  • every care home resident can have ‘named visitors’ who will be able to enter the care home for regular visits. There is no limit on the number of ‘named visitors’ that a single resident can have and no nationally set limit on the number who can visit in a single day

  • every care home resident can choose to nominate an essential care giver who may visit the home to attend to essential care needs. The essential care giver should be enabled to visit in all circumstances, including if the care home is in outbreak (but not if the essential care giver or resident are COVID-positive)

  • named visitors and residents are advised to keep physical contact to a minimum (excluding essential care givers). Physical contact like handholding is acceptable if hand washing protocols are followed. Close personal contact such as hugging presents higher risks but will be safer if it is between people who are double vaccinated, without face-to-face contact, and there is brief contact only

  • care homes can also continue to offer visits to friends or family members through arrangements such as outdoor visiting, rooms with substantial screens, visiting pods, or from behind windows

  • take a rapid lateral flow test on the day of your visit

  • do not visit the care home if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of coronavirus

  • wear a mask throughout your visit

  • wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water when you arrive at the care home
