During COVID-19, many people were unable to see loved ones. At Rubislaw Park, we understand the importance of staying connected for someone’s well-being. We are committed to ensuring that our residents keep connected with their loved ones and the local community. We support our residents with the opportunity to temporarily leave our care home for day trips and overnight stays.
To allow us to do this, we will carry out a risk assessment which includes the use of respiratory screening questions upon returning to the home. Currently, there is no requirement for testing and isolation for individuals who temporarily leave but to ensure everyone’s safety, we do suggest everyone keeps up to day with their vaccinations.
If there is an outbreak within our home, a restriction on visiting will be put in place. To stay in touch with family and friends we have a number of online devices to enable us to connect with our residents via video call. We know that human connection and participation in activities will help with our resident’s mental and physical well-being and that is why we always go above and beyond to support our residents and their families.
