Care home group, Milford Care, is pulling out the stops for its residents and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The award winning company has initiated a number of measures to protect people at its six homes, including helping residents to wash their hands, aiding staff by providing a freshly laundered uniform on arrival and providing more protection equipment.
The group has also invested in state of the art air purifiers in its communal areas which reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. Larger, mobile purifiers have also been purchased for residents’ bedrooms.
Additionally, the group has purchased iPads, laptops and tablets to help residents stay connected with their families during the outbreak.
Pen pal schemes have also been initiated with local schools to help residents stay in touch with the community during the lockdown.
Pierre Falleth, Director of Milford Care, said: “The health and well-being of our residents means everything to us. It’s a tough time for the whole country and we couldn’t be prouder of our staff and how they’ve stepped up during the crisis. Our positive outlook during this tough time has been unparalleled.”
