Families and friends of Oak House
Throughout this situation our main focus is maintaining the health, well being and safety of everyone living and working at Oak House. We continue to monitor changes in advice and follow guidance from Rutland County Council, Public Health England and Department for Health and Social Care.
We have managed the situation by enhancing our normal infection control measures to reduce the risk of infection, increasing cleaning routines and protocols. We maintain good stocks of personal protective equipment and have access to the NHS portal for further supplies. To provide reassurance for everyone we provide regular CV19 testing to all staff and residents.
We are delighted that all residents and staff have now received their first dose of the vaccine. Although for the time being, our procedures remain in place and this gives us all more confidence we can move forward.
We realise that lockdowns and restrictions to visits have had an impact on our residents and their loved ones. We understand the situation is not ideal and want to do more to help families and friends come together once again.
We want to reassure you, that whilst visits are still restricted inside the main house, any essential visits from healthcare professionals or families in exceptional circumstances will continue, with strict protocols in place. We remain open to new admissions and to provide reassurance to everyone this is done in a managed way to ensure the safety and well being of all.
We would like to thank everyone for the support and understanding, which helps ensure the safety of those living and working in our home.
