With an air of anticipation and hope for the year ahead, the first of two doses was administered by our health partners from the local community to excited residents and team members in January.
Speaking of receiving her immunisation jab, our resident Elizabeth says: “I’m happy that I received the vaccine, I saw so many other residents and team members being responsible and receiving it too. I felt it was the right thing to do.”
Resident Sylvia told us: “I’m really glad I got the vaccine and feel good knowing others have received theirs too.”
Similarly reassured, Heathfield Court’s Home Manager Gina Kitchenham told us: “I’m so proud of our team and residents protecting each other in this way. It’s an important step in making sure our home is as safe as it can possibly be.”
As we work with our health partners to roll out the second dose of the vaccine, we continue with the stringent upkeep of our enhanced safety measures that have been in place over the past year. This includes regular testing for team members and residents, high-quality PPE worn at all times by all members of our team, enhanced cleaning schedules, and regular reviews of our approach to ensure we remain at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19.
