St. Bernards and Coronavirus – Putting our residents first

Please be advised that St. Bernards Residential Care will be closed as of the 19th March 2020 until further notice. This is adhering to the latest Government and Public Health England guidance. We understand this is a difficult time for all but we must put the health and wellbeing of our residents at the forefront of everything. As you know the elderly and medically vulnerable are at the greatest risk so we must shield them as much as we can.

Visiting St. Bernards Residents

With the complexities this virus brings such as its rapid contagion, we are no longer allowing resident’s friends or family to visit the home during this quarantine period. We are however making special effort to keep you in touch with your loved ones with the use of technology. If you wish to speak to any resident at this time please call 0121 708 0177. Alternately we can also arrange a video call so you are able to communicate even further. To use this service, please call the number stated and ask a member of staff to arrange this.

Residents Wellbeing and Mental Health

Please be assured we will be taking extra measures to ensure all residents are both mentally and physically stimulated during this time. Activities in the home will be prioritised and we will be documenting all happenings through our digital care-plans.
