Covid-19 Measures

Families and friends of Oak House

 

We are delighted that residents and staff have received their CV19 vaccines.

We realise that lockdowns and restrictions have impacted everyone and it has been difficult to maintain contact in the normal way. At Oak House every resident is allocated one consistent visitor and from the 12th April we are extending this to 2 named visitors. Weather permitting, outdoor socially distant visits will continue in the garden.

We want to reassure you, that whilst visits are limited 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, in line with government guidance, to ensure the safety and well being of all.

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.  To provide reassurance to everyone we continue regular CV19 testing of all staff and residents.

We would like to thank everyone for the support and understanding, which helps ensure the safety of those living and working in our home.
