Due to the uncertain circumstances regarding Covid-19 and as advised by the Government and Public Health England, we are doing our very best to maintain our high standards of care and support to residents and staff alike throughout our Whitgift Care services. As always, the health and wellbeing of residents is our primary concern.
Our care homes are continuing to operate as normal, and we are working with a specialist consultant in Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) to act as our advisor and implement additional control measures during this time. As a precaution, visitors (other than essential healthcare visitors) are kindly asked not to visit Wilhelmina House or Whitgift House. We understand the importance of family contact for our residents and so we are looking into how our residents can stay in touch with loved ones using technology.
To reduce the risk to our residents, we have decided to suspend our 1596 Club Day Care service until further notice.
During this difficult time, we would like to thank our residents and families for their support and consideration and our staff for their valuable contributions.
