Although lockdown around the UK is easing, and we have re-introduced face to face visiting at Borough Care, the fight against Covid-19 is still far from over.
As we continue to work hard to keep our residents safe, our new visiting guidelines mean families are not able to pop in, like before, or stay with their loved one for long periods of time. This means families are continuing to rely on things such as telephone calls, Skype and Facetime, to keep in touch from a distance.
Staff and residents have participated in the Stars in Memory campaign, by creating and decorating stars to remember those lives lost during the coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic.
The coronavirus pandemic has produced widespread personal loss and tragedy to people throughout the UK, with the care sector often at the centre of this. Organisations across the care sector have joined together to produce stars, to mark the loss that has been felt during the pandemic and to show those who have lost loved ones they are being thought about.
Residents and staff spent time together designing their stars, which are displayed in the homes’ windows.
