Visits to our Nursing Homes
With the changes in national guidance, we will be making the below changes to visiting arrangements in our nursing homes; Capel Grange, Penylan House and Ty Coch. These changes outlined below will be in effect from Monday 3 May.
- Two designated indoor visitors are allowed. Indoor visits will be subject to taking an LFD test.
- Children aged 11 and over can now visit but will be required to undertake an LFD test and wear PPE the same as adult visitors with parental consent. Babies and very young infants who are not mobile are not counted as an additional visitor.
- Testing is not required for an outdoor visit. However, if a face covering is going to need to be removed a 2 metre distance must maintained
- Visitors (2 people maximum) must be from the same household as the designated visitor for an inside visit.
- It is advised not to bring gifts and flowers to the home. However, should you wish to bring a gift, please ensure it is a sealed unopened package
- Please avoid hugs and kisses
- If family members are picking up a resident for a day out / home visit, minimise the numbers in the car – ideally driver only and if possible the person uses the back seat, open windows if tolerated to improve ventilation and all to wear face coverings.
- Individuals who have been identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 by NHS Test Trace Protect are required to isolate for 10 days. Even if they have a test and the result is negative they must still isolate for the full 10 days and should not visit
Please contact the individual homes for further guidance or their facebook pages. The national guidance is available here: Visits to care homes: guidance for providers [HTML] | GOV.WALES
