We’re going above and beyond to ensure your family and ours are protected and healthy. 

We are conscious that recent news reports have heightened concerns surrounding care homes and their capabilities during this pandemic. We would like to take this opportunity to offer some reassurance that we have a clear plan in place to protect your loved ones, those caring for them and minimise the risk of infection in our homes.

Our residents’ quality of life and wellbeing is of paramount importance to us. We want to reassure you that despite the changes that have come into place, with lockdowns and isolation, we’re striving to maintain the same routine our residents have always enjoyed and keep things running as smoothly as we can.

Please know that despite the current challenges, our aims as a care group have not changed and our main purpose remains keeping your loved ones safe and providing high quality, person-centred care.

keeping you safe
We're all well-stocked and well-trained.

All of our homes PPE, food, medication and cleaning supplies are checked multiple times every week to make sure our homes have the basics and beyond for our residents. Our staff have the latest Covid-19 related infection control training and training sessions have continued throughout the lockdown.

Our homes are following the latest Public Health England guidelines, so when it comes to any concerns or any confirmed cases of Covid-19 in our homes, we can implement the latest safety measures to protect not only your loved ones but also those caring for them.

keeping you connected
Working with the wonders of technology.

Communication is so important to all of us at these times and is vital to our residents’ wellbeing. Our homes have been under lockdown since March but that hasn’t stopped us finding ways to keep our residents in touch with their loved ones. We’ve ensured all our homes have tablets, laptops or Smart TVs so they can enjoy video-calling loved ones, listen to live stream performances, and stay entertained. Our care staff have done a marvellous job in helping residents write letters, send postcards and even let them use their personal devices to video call their family members. The wonders of technology (and how tech-savvy some of our residents are) never ceases to amaze us!

Please get in touch with us to arrange a video call with your loved one.

keeping you informed
For regular updates, visit our Facebook pages.

Since the lockdown, we’re having to virtually open up our doors and give you an idea of what life is like in our homes. Our Facebook pages give you a genuine idea of every day life in our homes. Visit our Facebook pages for all the latest goings-on. Below are all of our homes’ Facebook business pages so you can see the updates right here if you want to. 

Relatives and friends are also receiving bi-weekly updates via our new newsletter, The Southcare Supporter. This will give you updates on resident welfare, activities, events in the home, how our communities are helping us, thanking our carers and any important updates relating to care homes and COVID-19.

We’ll soon have virtual tours set up in all our homes so you’ll be able to virtually ‘pop in and say hello’.

Thank you to our supportive communities

We’ve had so many donations from our local communities and cannot thank you enough for volunteering your time and effort. You’ve been there for us every step of the way since the start of the pandemic. We’ve had donations from local schools, local businesses, family members and friends of residents and from our own staff members. From ear protectors to pizzas to laptops – we’re so grateful to everyone that’s shown such a giving spirit.

looking after the southcare family

Every member of the Southcare family, from cleaner, to carer, to maintenance team, to manager have been finding ways to show they care. Whether it’s dancing, dressing up, cutting hair, painting nails, decorating rooms, singing songs, they’re continuing to put a smile on everyone’s face throughout the entire Southcare Homes Group.

The proprietors have been so supportive over the last few months, thanking staff with flowers, cupcakes, pizza deliveries as well as ensuring they have everything they need during the pandemic. The tasty treats have been a real boost to all the staff as well as the residents! Thank you to every member of the Southcare family!
