Woodroffe Benton House and Goodwin Court Update
As of 1st April Woodroffe Benton House will be a Residential frail home only and Goodwin Court will be temporarily closed.
4th May 2021
Following the Governments' announcement today, we are happy to announce some changes from TODAY to our visiting plans.
In future, any two family members may book a visit to any of our homes. (no longer just identified "special access" family members) If they complete a rapid test 30 minutes before their appointment, and it is negative, they may visit without screens in place and enjoy physical contact with their loved one. Well behaved and supervised children are now welcome.
From today, families may also take their loved one out for a garden visit or walk ( so long as it meets nationwide guidance) away from the home and return them later the same day without incurring 14 days quarantine as a result. The resident will be LFT tested two days after the outing for covid screening purposes. Clearly this is open to significant abuse and we cannot police what the resident does when they are away from our home but we do ask that everyone is mindful of how far we have come and how hard we have worked too keep everyone safe. Misusing this outing opportunity could put everyone here at risk and we would respectfully ask you to consider this when planning your outing.
We also hope to be re-opening the coffee shop later this month and will post separately about this soon.
