Home news

Team members and residents at a Purley care home have been celebrating after they received Covid-19 vaccinations for almost everyone living and working in the home.

With the support of Selsdon Park Medical Practice, the vast majority of residents and team members at Care UK’s Amberley Lodge, on Downlands Road, were given the first dose of the vaccination.

Covid-19 vaccinations rolled out at Purley care homeOne of the first in the queue for the vaccination was 99-year-old Queenie, who said: I’m so glad to have had the vaccine!”

Azalea Moses, Home Manager at Amberley Lodge, 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 Selsdon Park Medical Practice. 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.

Amberley Lodge has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as respite, and end of life care.
