We have taken the very difficult decision to stop all visits to The Uplands with immediate effect.
Infection rates of Covid-19 in care homes are rising across the country, there have been outbreaks in our local community and we must do all we can to keep our residents – and everyone else directly associated with the Home – safe from the virus.
Asking families to stand down from visiting their loved ones is so difficult, and relatives have been amazingly co-operative and helpful over the lockdown period, but once more we ask for your understanding and patience – we know how painful this must be for you.
We are very much hoping that this is a temporary measure and we will be able to invite relatives to resume visits as soon as possible.
