The health, safety and well-being of our residents, staff and their families are of the utmost priority to us at Harrier Grange Care Home. We are committed to keeping our residents safe and we continue to follow guidance and legislation as issued by the Government and key sector bodies. We are committed to keeping our residents, their families, and our staff well-informed at all times.

It is undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, an immense impact on everyone’s lives. Harrier Grange has worked hard to develop and implement new policies and procedures that provide reassurance for all residents and visitors to the home.

Residents and Loved Ones

Our COVID-19 Approach

Care homes in England can make risk-based decisions as to whether face masks are required to be worn. Following a risk assessment, our care home has made the decision to remove the universal wearing of masks. It is a personal choice whether visitors still wish to wear a mask and people receiving care can ask staff to wear face masks; our staff will continue to work in whichever way makes our residents most comfortable.

We continue to no longer have restrictions as to the number of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained.

At any time, the decision to not wear face masks can be changed as determined by the Home Manager, company, local or national healthcare agencies. COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National, and Local Healthcare Agencies may also change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Health, Safety & Wellbeing is of the Utmost Importance

Within Harrier Grange Care Home, we ensure that we always have a supply of PPE and sanitation products that all our residents and guests can use. Our staff also follow the infection prevention and control measures that we have put in place.

Additionally, our home understands how important to stay up to date with the official advice and guidance provided by the Government, Department of Health, and the local NHS Trust.

To protect our home even further, we recommend all of our residents and team members remain up to date with any available vaccinations. If we do have any cases of COVID-19 within our home, we have procedures in place so we can take appropriate actions.


Staying Connected is Key

At Harrier Grange Care Home, we believe it is vital that our residents stay connected with their loved ones, especially since the effects of COVID-19. We support our residents within our home by helping them to visit their families on day trips and overnight stays. To allow us to do this, we make sure we carry out risk assessments for each individual and once they return they will be asked some respiratory questions.

Currently, there are no requirements to isolate after temporary leave. If there are any cases within our home and we have to restrict visits, we have several devices for our residents to use so they can stay connected with their friends and families.

Within our home, we also have a range of activities that our residents can go to so they can spend some quality time with each other – We know that human interaction can help someone’s mental and physical well-being.

We understand the importance of COVID-19 and keeping our residents, their families, and our staff safe. At Harrier Grange Care Home, we are always happy to assist and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Here are some of our FAQs regarding COVID-19. 

Whilst being vaccinated is no longer mandatory we strongly recommend that all residents, their visitors, and team members at Harrier Grange Care Home are fully COVID-19 vaccinated, including future boosters, unless medically exempt. To reduce the risk of infection to others we will continue to encourage our team members to have all their vaccinations.

When transferring from the community or another care home a person does not need to isolate if the circumstances at the care home / interim care facility from which the person has transferred are known.

If the resident is symptomatic or has been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, then they should isolate and perform two LFT tests on day (0), and again on day (2). Isolation can end following two negative tests.

If the resident tests positive in the home, they must be isolated for 5 days. The resident can then return to their normal activities if they feel well and do not have a high temperature (without the use of medication paracetamol).

Residents who test positive should avoid contact with other people who are eligible for COVID-19 treatments for 10 days after a positive test. Residents unable to take the test should isolate for 5 days.

During an outbreak, there may be risk assessments carried out to include but not limited to the control of visiting arrangements, admissions to the home, and the use of communal areas for a period of time.

We work closely with local and national agencies in accordance with local agreements and guidance. For more information please contact our Home Manager directly.
