We are delighted to be able to open our doors to visitors and welcome new residents.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating and, at times, overwhelming impact on everyone’s lives, and we are only too happy to be making steps back to get life at Kingsacre Care Home back to normality. The health and wellbeing of our residents is of the utmost importance to us; keeping you safe is a huge responsibility, and you can rest assured that we take it very seriously.
The health of our residents, their families and our staff remains our top priority and it is our ongoing commitment to everyone in the Kingsacre Care Home community to do everything within our power to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Prioritising the Health, Safety & Wellbeing of Our Residents
We have maintained the highest levels of safety, hygiene and respect for Government guidelines, all the while maintaining a warm and friendly environment. While preventative measures remain a priority, it has always remained imperative that any measures implemented have minimal, if any, effect on the outstanding around-the-clock care that we pride ourselves on. Our team at Kingsacre Care Home near Clydebank remain dedicated to supporting our residents and loved ones through these unprecedented times, and are a continual source of reassurance for their families and friends.
It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.
A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.
For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party.
At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.
