Caroline Bishop Director of Nursing at Fonthill Care, shares her insight on boosting resident morale during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What measures/practices have you implemented to ensure the safety of residents since the start of the pandemic? Are there any safety practices that have been implemented since the first lockdown in 2020?
By mid-March when lockdown was imposed by the UK government, we had suspended all visits from non-residents except in circumstances such as end of life. These measures have gradually been varying to an extent in line with lockdown restrictions, but through the entire pandemic we have ensured all residents have had access to video call software in order to see and speak to loved ones.
