COVID-19 at Manton Hall

Having successfully navigating the pandemic and remaining Covid safe
with Zero cases we re pleased to return to fully open!

Update April 2022

New Covid -19 guidelines for care homes came into force on Monday 4th April 2022 – this is how it will affect visits to loved ones.

Covid -19 testing will cease for residents and the vast majority of visitors. Visitors will no longer have to book visits, bring a Covid passport nor complete a Lateral Flow test prior to visiting, unless they are providing personal care to a loved one. Residents will now only be tested if they are symptomatic, although we will continue to monitor their temperature and oxygen levels daily. Staff will continue to be tested albeit at reduced levels.

We ask that you do not visit a home if you have any symptoms of Flu, Covid-19 or diarrhoea and vomiting or have had any of these symptoms in the 72 hours prior to visiting. Staff will continue to wear PPE including face masks, and we will ask all visitors to do the same. Our homes will continue to provide PPE and ask you to carry out hand hygiene upon entering.

Regrettably positive Covid cases will likely mean that the home will have to close to most visitors for at least 10 days,
so it is important that we continue to minimise any risks of infection transmission.

Returning to a near normal situation is obviously fantastic news for everyone but we will continue to remain vigilant and alert to risks,
whilst following the advice from our local health protection teams.

Taking a tour

Whether you’re looking to stay with us permanently, or for a short break, we’re delighted that we can now invite you to take a show round of the home in person, subject to testing and safety guidelines. Simply book a tour with the home manager once you’ve made your enquiry.

We can also provide a virtual show round if you’d prefer. Either way, we’re keen to show you what daily life is like here and for you to meet our friendly team.

If you decide following your visit that you or your loved one would like to move into the home we’ll organise an assessment either face to face – with PPE and socially distanced – or conducted virtually to make sure we can meet all of your care needs.

COVID-19 Testing

Our home was among the first in the county to take part in the government’s care home testing programme in Summer 2020 – and we’ve been regularly testing colleagues and residents since.

With residents’ safety and wellbeing our absolute priority, we want to assure you that we’re doing everything possible to prevent coronavirus entering our home.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

Vaccinations have been offered to all residents and colleagues and we’re making sure anyone coming to work in our home after 11 November is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless exempt for medical reasons) – in accordance with government requirements.

Visiting your loved one

We understand how important visits are for everyone and are pleased that government restrictions on nominated visitors have been removed and we can welcome regular visits from family and friends.

Residents can also nominate an Essential Care Giver who is able to visit more frequently and for longer, while following the same testing and PPE safety measures as our care teams.

In addition, our homes continue to offer visits to other friends or family members, with COVID-safe arrangements in place for indoor and outdoor visiting. We’ve also invested significantly in technology – such as Skype and FaceTime– so you can stay in regular touch.

Of course, visiting remains subject to changes in government guidance and local health protection restrictions in response to transmission rates and variants of concern. We will always permit visits in exceptional circumstances.

Unique, independent, full of life

Our aim is simple – to provide excellent care within our family orientated developments. We do this by striving to deliver the best service we can, while ensuring our committed health care professionals have the passion to deliver an excellent service.
