Our dedicated and highly trained teams constantly strive to maximise the safety of residents, visitors and colleagues while keeping life as normal and fulfilling as possible for the people we care for.
Our safety and cleanliness procedures
Testing: Care UK homes have a robust approach to COVID-19 testing, with many testing residents and colleagues on a weekly basis. All new residents must be tested and have received a negative result before they can move into a Care UK home.
PPE: We have ample supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the colleagues caring for you will be wearing this at all times. All visitors are briefed on safety and cleanliness procedures before their visit and are provided with masks and sanitising gel on arrival.
Cleaning: We have always been extremely stringent about cleaning. However, we have increased the deep cleaning protocols across our homes. This includes cleaning and sanitising your room each day, and operating strict laundry protocols. Communal areas and touch points including doorbells, door handles, lift buttons, keypads and handrails are cleaned regularly.
Hand hygiene: We have hand sanitising gel for everyone to use at the entrance to every home, and there are sanitising and hand washing stations throughout each home for residents and colleagues to use.
