These are unprecedented times for us all. Rest assured we are doing everything that we can to safeguard the health of our residents and staff.
Coronavirus can make anyone seriously ill, but for the elderly, the risk is higher, likely reflecting the presence of other diseases, a weaker immune system, or simply worse overall health.
As such we have temporarily restricted visits to the home to only those deemed vital or essential (e.g. medical professionals and end of life visits) to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These decisions are made on a case-by-case basis by the home manager. We appreciate this is difficult for family members and friends who would like to visit their loved ones, but we do this with the best intentions to keep the home and our residents safe from the risk of infection.
For all those concerned, Charlton Grange is here to provide support and guidance in these trying times. Please contact the home if you have any further questions.
