Rebecca Pearson, the home’s operations director, says it’s essential to balance residents’ safety and happiness: “Our residents are among the most vulnerable to the virus, so we’ve been working really hard to keep them safe. At the same time, we know the importance of family connection and the joy it brings to see loved ones in person.

“That’s why we’re all so pleased to commence these outdoor visits.”

Visitors at the home - which cares for up to 60 residents - are limited to one guest per resident, with the facility still following all Public Health England guidance.
