Covid – 19 information
Rayner House is fully operational and open to new residents
Since the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic our priority here at Rayner House has been to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both residents and staff. This has led to restrictions on visiting the home which we know have been very tedious for both relatives and residents. We have invested in new technology to ensure that residents and relatives can communicate safely on a regular basis and the provision of ipads & tablets has proved very popular.
We are very happy to report that throughout the period of the pandemic we have had no coronavirus related deaths at Rayner House.
All our staff and residents are tested for Covid-19 on a regular basis according to government and local public health advice. In addition, we have a plentiful supply of PPE and undertake regular staff training to ensure adherence to high standards of cleanliness and current Covid guidance.
Following the most recent advice from the Department of Health, one named relative will now be able to visit inside the home but will need to have a Covid swab ( Lateral Flow Test ) on arrival, wear PPE which will be provided and follow our guidance during the visit. It should be noted however, that restrictions could be reimposed in certain circumstances. The full guidance is available on the Government website.
All our residents have received their first Covid vaccine and should receive their second dose by the middle of March, following which we will safely resume visits according to the new guidance.
We should like to thank all residents and their families for being so patient during this difficult time.
We are currently welcoming new residents to Rayner House and are here to provide the care for those in need within a safe and secure environment.
