Team members and residents at a Bracknell care home have been celebrating after they received Covid-19 vaccinations for almost everyone living and working in the home.
With the support of Dr Suresh of Easthampstead surgery the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Bickerton House, on Warfield Road, were given the first dose of the vaccination.
One of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 77 year old Diane Oxley, who said: “I’ve been waiting for this and will be so glad to get it done!”
Erika Smith, Home Manager at Bickerton House, said: “We were so pleased that residents in our home have had the vaccination. I would like to offer my thanks to the NHS team at Easthampstead surgery. They were incredibly efficient, friendly, and made sure everything went smoothly, which was much appreciated.
“This is the first step towards getting back to normal, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the year. We’re looking forward to receiving our second dose of the vaccine as soon as we’re able.”
Care UK is keen to stress that the vaccine doesn’t provide full protection against the virus so its teams will continue to follow their stringent infection control measures including regular deep cleaning, regular testing, the use of masks and other PPE, social distancing, air purifiers and temperature checks to keep everyone safe.
The purpose-built care home has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, and incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities, including its own cinema, hair salon and café.
