News & Activities August 2022

Welcome

We welcomed our lovely new resident Kate Frampton to the Nettlestead Family last weekend! We hope you enjoy your stay with us making happy memories.

 

Feedback

We love and appreciate hearing your feedback and reviews and ask if you could spare a few minutes to post a five star review on carehome.co.uk. There is also a bottle of wine for all those who publish their review, we will even provide a straw for the wine!
A huge THANK YOU to those family members who have already submitted theirs 🙂

Visiting/Testing

Due to the recent rises in COVID we continue asking families kindly to wear masks when in the home again to minimise the risk of this coming into the home. We continue to take bookings for you all to come and see your loved ones so we are aware of those coming and going, this can now be more than one person at a time. Please note, we continue to ask that all family members coming into the home continue to sign in using our tablet system.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to either Holly or Katherine.

All staff continue to carry out testing; new government guidelines have stated we can continue to testing twice a week, we will continue to keep you updated. Residents are still no longer required to test.
