COVID-19

The team here at Springvale Care Home are thrilled to be able to welcome visitors and open our doors to new residents. 

We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. We recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have followed guidance from the Governments and local agencies to support the wellbeing of our residents, relatives and staff teams.

We will continue to work closely with our staff, residents and their loved ones to support their preferences and should there be any further outbreaks at the home, we will keep you fully updated.

Always Striving to Surpass Expectations

In line with recent Scottish Government guidance effective from September 2022, care homes in Scotland no longer require face masks to be worn during visits due to high vaccination rates and other mitigations against COVID-19 in the social care sector and LFD testing is no longer necessary. Face masks will continue to be provided at the home should it be your preference to continue to wear one and staff will support the preferences of our residents who wish for our staff to wear face masks whilst providing them with care.

We would like to reassure you that we will continue to work closely with our Local Health Protection Teams and will follow their guidance should this decision change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Preventative Measures

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, our outstanding staff have gone above and beyond. We have put in place a whole host of additional safety measures at our facilities to ensure our residents continue to live their lives as they always have, with minimal inconvenience. All new safety measures have been designed to have as little impact as possible on our residents and their everyday lives; by making just a few adjustments to our home and the way in which we operate, we can mitigate the risk of COVID-19 in our community.

The teams at Springvale Care Home are placing high priority on the mental, emotional, and physical health needs of all residents; from keeping up-to-date with government regulations to providing guidance to all residents and their loved ones. We also want to ensure that an active social life can continue to be enjoyed by our residents, whilst maintaining high standards of infection control, and our Activities Team are doing all they can to achieve this. By utilising Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), screen dividers and sanitisation rooms, our staff are able to continue providing the outstanding care that our residents deserve.

Our Measures Include:

Our committed staff have made every effort to ensure that residents and their loved ones are as protected against COVID-19 as they can be.

Screen Dividers

We have fitted our indoor with floor to ceiling screens and intercoms, in order to provide a safe and secure way to visit your loved ones, while still remaining safe and adhering to government guidelines. Outdoor meeting areas are still available; please do get in touchwith our team to find out more.

Social Distancing

In line with government rules and restrictions, we have implemented social distancing here at Springvale Care Home. Where possible, residents and employees must keep a distance of at least one metre between them.

PPE

Faces masks will be worn by staff in line with government guidance and our residents and relatives preferences. Staff will continue to wear other PPE such as disposable gloves to ensure that the rate of infection is reduced at Springvale.

Video Calls

We actively encourage our residents and their friends and family to arrange long-distant video calls via the internet. We have invested in the latest video conferencing technology so you can continue your regular contact and be assured you will never miss a moment or a memory.

Santisation

In various areas throughout Springvale Care Home, we have installed sanitisation stations. Both residents and visitors alike are reminded and encouraged to regularly use our antibacterial gel.

Secure Premises

We take pride in Springvale Care Home being an extremely safe and secure environment; you can be rest assured that all COVID-19 measures are protected, respected and will in no way be compromised.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing is a Top Priority

The health of our residents and their safety and wellbeing is a top priority for us, above all else. In response to COVID-19, we have installed a number of precautions designed to minimise infection rates, while also ensuring that our residents have a home that is as comfortable and cosy as possible. 

Despite this difficult time, our highly skilled team has worked around-the-clock to be able to provide a range of COVID-19 friendly activities, to keep our residents stimulated and entertained.

Ensuring We Stay Connected

We understand that it is essential for people to have human connection and support from loved ones for their mental health and physical wellbeing, so ensuring that residents and their loved ones stay connected during these unprecedented times has never been more crucial.

At Springvale Care Home, we are fully equipped with a variety of online devices that allows our residents to video call their friends and family. Despite the challenges we’ve faced as a result of COVID-19, we’re working hard and together to overcome them and will continue to ensure everyone has multiple options that ensures they remain as connected as possible to their loved ones.
