How our care home has adapted to the coronavirus outbreak

The current situation we find ourselves in is unprecedented, and everyone has needed to make significant changes to their daily lives. Across UK care homes, more strict measures have been put in place to prevent the spread of the virus and protect the elderly who are most at risk.

At Primrose Lodge Weymouth, you can rest assured that our care home is following all government guidelines in order to protect your loved ones and provide the same high level of care you have come to expect from us. If you have any questions regarding our care and response to COVID-19, please feel free to contact our team on 01305 786568.

Reduced visiting hours

In order to protect staff, residents and their families, we made the difficult decision early on to stop all face to face visitations. Whilst this this has been hard for everyone and a significant change to our usual open-door policy, this was the only way that we could both remain compliant with government regulation and ensure the wellbeing of everyone.

However, we still actively encourage regular communication, whether that is via a daily phone or video call, so our residents can stay connected with loved ones even during this difficult time. We are taking the time to keep families informed, so they are aware of any updates in either our procedures or the welfare of their loved one.

FUNdraising Fridays!

Starting from the 17th April until the end of lockdown, we will be taking part in FUNdraising Fridays in order to raise money for Dorset County Hospital’s COVID-19 Appeal. From poetry readings to guinea pig races, our staff and residents will be pulling out all the stops!

We have been posting videos of all the action to our Facebook page – so make sure that you check in to see what we’ve been up to in order to reach our target of £500. If you wish to donate, you can do so through our Just Giving Page: All donations are greatly appreciated!

The fully trained staff at Primrose Lodge Weymouth are staying up to date with all government advice to ensure our residents are safe, happy and healthy. To find out more about our Weymouth care home, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today on 01305 786568
