A Woodford Green care home has created an outdoor visiting area to allow its residents to see family and friends once again.
The Bupa Harts House facility started welcoming back visitors last week (Monday July 27), after installing a large gazebo and screens to ensure safe visits could take place.
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.
