NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 - Updated 26.10.2020

PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR OUR WEBSITE FOR RELEVANT UPDATES 

 We continue to work to the highest possible standards of infection control. We have robust measures in place for cleaning all areas, checking on the health of the people we support and our staff. We have a routine testing cycle for staff so we can identify and isolate any asymptomatic staff as quickly as possible to avoid the potential spread of infection. We continue to temperature check staff and run through set safety questions before allowing entry to the homes and anyone showing any signs or symptoms of the virus are sent into isolation immediately and tested. Our staff continue to wear the required PPE whilst on duty and to follow the governments guidance whilst not on duty in order to reduce risks.

We have risk management measures in place to accommodate contact between the people we support and their families, this is of course subject to change depending on R rate in the local area/ the location of each home and if there is an infection within a home.

The staff in the services continue to work hard to keep the people we support meaningfully occupied with fun things to do as this has really helped us all through this period.

We have reviewed and updated our COVID-19 plan and risk assessments in light of the second wave and winter.

We are immensely proud of the people we support and our staff who have worked together and supported each other so well through this crisis. They still manage to laugh and enjoy life despite the long running restrictions.

We continue to recruit both permanent and bank staff and we are finding that interest in the social care profession has really increased which is positive, as it should be, because it is an excellent field of work.

Thank you to our fantastic staff!

 

Our staff have been nothing short of amazing during this pandemic. Their commitment to the people we support and to our profession has been heart-warming. Like all organisations we are nothing without our staff and we feel extremely lucky in Dolphin Homes to work with very many staff who have worked with us for years and some who are newer but who have made a fantastic contribution to our teams who we hope will also stay for years.

We want to say a very special thank you to our managers who have wrapped their arms around their homes and delivered safe and well-led services during this time. This pandemic has meant they have had to understand, apply and implement policy and procedure sometimes very quickly and often with many changes following updates and they have done this competently and professionally and we appreciated their dedication very much. 

Best Wishes to you all.
