COVID-19

The health and wellbeing of our residents is so important to us, so we do everything we can to ensure residents are safe at all times.

We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. We recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have followed guidance from the Governments and local agencies to support the wellbeing of our residents, relatives and staff teams.

We will continue to work closely with our staff, residents and their loved ones to support their preferences and should there be any further outbreaks at the home, we will keep you fully updated.

Westerton are Here For You, No Matter What

In line with recent Scottish Government guidance effective from September 2022, care homes in Scotland no longer require face masks to be worn during visits due to high vaccination rates and other mitigations against COVID-19 in the social care sector and LFD testing is no longer necessary. Face masks will continue to be provided at the home should it be your preference to continue to wear one and staff will support the preferences of our residents who wish for our staff to wear face masks whilst providing them with care.

We would like to reassure you that we will continue to work closely with our Local Health Protection Teams and will follow their guidance should this decision change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing of Everyone Remains a Priority 

Above all things, the health of our residents, as well as their safety and well-being, is a high priority for us. In response to COVID-19, we’ve implemented a number of measures aimed at reducing infection rates while also providing a pleasant and welcoming environment for our residents.

Despite the challenges, our dedicated staff has worked around the clock to provide a variety of COVID-19-friendly activities to keep our clients busy and entertained.

Ensuring Everyone Stays Connected

We recognise that human connection and support from loved ones is critical for people’s mental and physical well-being, so keeping residents and those closest to them bonded during these turbulent times has never been more important.

We have a range of online tools at Westerton Care Home that allows our residents to video call their friends and family. Despite the obstacles we’ve encountered as a result of COVID-19, we’re working hard and collectively to overcome them, and we’ll keep working to guarantee that residents can stay in touch with loved ones.
