I just wanted to say thank God there are people like you working in the care system that give us the knowledge that not everyone is bad. I thank my lucky stars that you were on Ash unit to look after Ian and care and protect him. Now I truly know you are my guardian angel.
Ian is at home this weekend. He doesn’t speak much now, just the odd word, but he likes me to sing to him and he tries to join in. I don’t think we will be hitting the big time with our voices!!!! I just love being around him – he is my hero and I love him. I hope you and your family are well and happy. Thank you for being you. Lots of love, Jane”
“The staff are not only professional in their approach, they are also very personable and it’s clear they do actually care above all else. The facilities and organisation are first rate. The buildings and grounds are well maintained and reflect the high standards of care taken throughout the care village. My wife’s dignity is respected at all times and her comfort is always the main focus.”
“I’ve been at the home for nearly 18 months, I know what it’s all about and would recommend the above home because I like it very much and I’m happy here.”
We are pleased to confirm that we are open to admissions to support frail and vulnerable people who need nursing or residential care, whether coming from their own home or a hospital setting.
All our rooms are spacious, with the vast majority benefitting from well-appointed ensuite shower facilities.
To ensure that new admissions are supported in a way that protects people, we are taking extra precautions at this time as follows:
• We have added some questions about a person’s Covid-19 status to our pre-admission assessment. This is to understand if there has been any potential contact with the virus, if the person has had Covid-19, or if they have any symptoms
• We will insist that any prospective resident coming to us from hospital has been tested for Covid-19 as close as possible to their date of admission to the home. If the test is positive the admission will be delayed for a minimum of 7 days from the onset of symptoms
• Until such time as we can conduct viewings in person, we can provide Skype tours of the homes or, if preferred, photographs of available rooms
• New residents will receive all care and support in their own rooms for at least 14 days after arrival. This is because the current guidance tells us that a person can have the virus for up to 14 days before they show symptoms
• We check all residents temperatures twice a day. This is in addition to monitoring general health and well-being including lung health
Please note that visiting is currently only permitted in very limited circumstances. We are using various technologies to help friends and family stay in touch, including Skype and telephone.
We are in the process of establishing screened areas for visiting, and we will use these areas to reopen for visiting as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

With best wishes from the St Mary's Court team
