Latest Visiting Guidelines
We have received updated guidelines from Helen Whately MP - Minister of State for Care.
At this time visitors will be asked to continue to book appointments, take a test on the day of their visit to the care home, wear a mask throughout their visit, wash hands thoroughly on arrival, and limit close contact with residents.
All staff, residents and visitors should be encouraged and supported to get the vaccine as soon as they are able.
As the Coronavirus restrictions start to ease, we are continuing with our robust and comprehensive infection control procedures to ensure the health, safety and well being of our residents, staff and visitors.
All staff continue to be testing weekly on PCR and twice a week on LFD tests.
Care Home Visitng is Back!
The government rules on care home visiting is changing rapidly. At the moment, visiting is limited to 5 named visitors per resident.
Visiting slots will have to be booked in advance and strict infection control protocols must be adhered to.
Visiting slots are currently limited due to staffing levels and also available space, please bear with us, we are trying to make suitable adjustments to the home to accommodate more visiting slots / areas.
Christmas is coming
We really enjoyed putting up the Christmas tree at the White House this week - there was lots of fun and laughing as everyone gave directions for where to place the decorations! We were all getting into the Festive spirit as mince pies were served and requests were taken for the Christmas playlist. It's so lovely seeing the tree in the lounge and the lights reflecting in the window.
Lovely compliment for the White House
We were thrilled to receive this recent feedback from a family member:
" I would like to extend a massive thanks to everyone at The White House for looking after my Mum through her convalescence in the midst of the pandemic. The White House was recommended to us by my Mum's CPN and it was everything she promised. Mum was surrounded by caring, generous, kind and warm hearted souls who made her feel welcome and supported through a really, really tough time. The White House is in a pretty setting with birds and trees and a lovely lawn. It's easy to get to, and Mum had the right balance of privacy and social interaction to progress. She is back home and doing really well. I can confidently say that during her time at The White House she progressed dramatically. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The White House to anyone - for short, medium or long term care. Thanks to everyone for supporting us so well."
