COVID-19

The health and wellbeing of our residents is of the utmost importance to us at Rubislaw Park. Keeping you safe is a huge responsibility, and you can rest assured that we take it very seriously.

We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. However, we recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure, and ensure their loved ones that the health and wellbeing of our residents really is at the heart and soul of everything we do.

Exceptional Care in Challenging Times

Our teams have been committed to helping our residents through everything life throws at them from the very beginning, and it has no plans of stopping now. Throughout the global pandemic, Rubislaw Park has consistently ensured that the safety of our residents comes first above all else, and has been a constant reassuring source for their loved ones.

It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.

A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.

For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly. 

Preventative Measures

We really value person-centred care, and believe strongly in the power of genuine human connection between our residents and our team members. Due to COVID-19, we have had to adapt our practices to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of everyone in line with local and national healthcare guidelines. 

However, by using extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), having enhanced cleaning regimes, areas for sanitisation and maintaining a safe distance, our teams have managed to continue doing what they do best; delivering unrivalled levels of care.
