Following guidance issued by the Department of Health, Knockmoyle Lodge Care Facility has reviewed our suspension of visiting and we aim to support our residents to see their families again in person.
However it is important to note that all of our residents remain in the high risk category from COVID 19 (Coronavirus) due to age, and medical conditions, therefore our visits will be phased, strictly managed and reviewed daily in accordance with guidance and the wellbeing of residents. Knockmoyle has carefully considered how we can implement visiting as safely as possible, our policy has been developed following a thorough risk assessment of the nursing home with the aim to minimise the risk of infection, and ensure the safety of our residents, staff, visitors and outer public as much as possible.
The following policy is effective from Wednesday 22nd July and provides all the information you need to know, as a visitor. However, as of Wednesday 23rd September, only one visitor per resident will be permitted. This applies to window visits as well as face-to-face visits.
We understand that this is extremely disappointing for everyone but you can still stay in touch through Skype, FaceTime letters and phone calls. We appreciate your understanding at this time and as always we thank you for your ongoing support.
Please note our visitors policy will be reviewed on a daily basis and all families will be updated accordingly. Please also note that ALL VISITS must be booked in advance by calling +44 28 8224 7931.
