Coronavirus We would like to assure everyone that here, at Ifield Park Care home, we consider the welfare of our Residents, staff and visitors of the utmost importance. We already follow a comprehensive infection control policy and procedures as part of our normal day to day running, in and around our homes. This has ensured an excellent record of clear infection control to date. In addition, during the concerns regarding The Coronavirus, we are following local NHS and Government guidance updates on managing any potential risks. We would kindly ask that on visiting your friends and family, you support us on continuing to be a completely Coronavirus free home. We ask respectfully, that if you have any signs of a cough, cold or temperature or have recently returned from an area abroad where Coronavirus is more prevalent, please refrain from visiting your loved ones. We also ask politely, that if you are well enough to visit, please wash your hands regularly and use the hand gel that



Ellwood re-opens to visitors again today. This now means that all of the homes are virus free and open to visitors. However, please note a slight change in our visiting plan from Thursday 2nd Dec when lockdown ends and the tier system comes into operation. We are located in tier 2.

Being in tier 2 has the following impact upon visiting our homes. For Penn and Ellwood, a maximum of two visitors at any one time FROM THE SAME HOUSEHOLD or SUPPORT BUBBLE only. If you are planning to visit with someone you don’t live with, you will need to make separate visit appointments please. If there is huge demand, visit times will be reduced to 30 minutes to enable everyone to have a visit in the run up to Christmas. This can be clarified when you book.

For the Nursing homes, as the patients here are clinically extremely vulnerable, visits MUST be by ONE person only please, for the time being.

If you have any queries concerning booking arrangements, please speak to the relevant home Manager. Thank you.

These arrangements will be kept under review and may change if the government guidelines do. Next official review date is 16th December.

Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and positive support whilst we do all we can to keep your loved ones and our staff safe.


Visits are by pre-booked appointment ONLY. 

Thank you for your patience and support over the last few months when we have strived to keep your loved ones safe. Please be clear about the expectations of a visit before you come & do not attend without a confirmed appointment.

We reserve the right to change this plan and close the Homes once more if the virus materialises again in any of the Homes in the coming weeks. Thank you for your understanding.
