Greater freedom in Care Homes

From this week residents will have more freedom to visit family at home in the garden without having to self-isolate for 14 days when they return to the home. Visits to parks are also on the list of guidance that enable residents to get out and about without the self-isolation.

Some residents may not have been outside for over 12 months, so this will be a real boost to them and their families. Not all Care homes are following the new guidance, but many will want to give residents more access to the outdoors and what they are able to do to improve quality of life.
