Coronavirus Update

At Sheffcare, our first priority is always the safety of residents, colleagues and visitors in our homes.  Our residents as you are well aware are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus.

Therefore we have reluctantly taken the decision to temporarily suspend all visits from relatives and friends, unless there are exceptional circumstances. This wasn’t a decision that we have taken lightly but we believe that by restricting our homes to essential visitors only we are protecting your loved one as much as we can at this difficult time.

In line with government guidance this will be for a minimum of twelve weeks. It may be longer. We will write to you again when visiting restrictions are lifted.

We recognise that this decision will concern some people, but we do ask for your support.  If you feel your personal circumstances warrant a visit, please contact the home manager before you travel to the home.

I would also like to take this opportunity to assure you that we have all the staff, supplies and equipment to ensure that our homes continue to operate as normal as possible for your loved ones.

If you have any questions about whether you should visit the home then please speak directly with the homes Registered Manager who will be happy to address your concerns and will give you the most up to date information.

All our staff who are worried that they may have been exposed to the Coronavirus will self-isolate at home in line with national guidance. The following link will be useful

Thank you for taking the time to read this, please take care of yourself at this difficult time and be assured that the health and well-being of your relative is paramount to us.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any more questions. We shall of course keep you fully updated with any new developments should they arise.
