Rushymead Action Against Corona Virus

Background


At Rushymead, we have long established, as standard, infection control precautions against the transmission of infectious agents from identified and unidentified sources of infection. These include blood, body fluids, mucous membranes or non-intact skin plus paraphernalia that may have become contaminated. The way my staff and I go about this is by evaluation of any threat to and from every person in Rushymead including the scale of contact and probable scale of exposure to a source or sources of infection. This is not just for our residents’ and staff safety but also for visitors under normal operations. 


On top of routine evaluation for risk of infection and managing vulnerability, personal hygiene is of prime importance at Rushymead. This plus the use of personal protective equipment, approved hand washing techniques, safe handling of paraphernalia and the whole care environment has over the years enabled us to check and swiftly eliminate any outbreak.


Current Measures


The home is currently on lockdown to protect our residents and only essential visitors will be admitted such as paramedics and DNs at this time. We sincerely hope that this is a provisional course of action and we are hopeful that we will be able to open our doors to you as soon as we are in a position to. On top of our set standard, we are following the current guidelines from the government and Public Health England in relation to COVID-19. 


My staff, of whom I’m very proud, are currently working exceptionally hard during this difficult time adapting to our further improved and updated standards germane to COVID-19. Any resident or staff that should show any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 will be isolated as per NHS guidelines. 


We have 20 acres of beautiful grounds at Rushymead and, weather permitting, we always take full advantage by taking our residents out for a walk. So, they are never confined indoors unless they so wish. 


In case you or someone else needs care or just to get in touch, please click here. Emails have been sent out to all families advising them of the availability to Skype so they are able to keep in touch with their loved ones.


Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation at this unprecedented time.


Stay Safe and Stay Home.

Services

Dental & Chiropody

A Chiropodist comes every 6-8 weeks and a visit by a private dentist can be arranged. A telephone is available for resident's use, or a private line can be installed in the resident's room.

The hairdresser also visits once a week.

Physical Disability Support

Arthritis, physical disabilities and age-related conditions like dementia are some of the few circumstances that prevent one from caring for themselves. Our caregivers can assist you with daily tasks such as mobility, eating, exercising, and grooming.

Activities

Stimulating Environment

Our Activity Organiser arranges for group activities everyday of the week. 

If the resident is able to undertake travel away from Rushymead, visits to place of local interest, theatres, garden centres or lunch at a local pub are arranged. 


Every effort is made to provide a stimulating environment for our residents.


An optional inter-denominational service is held every other week, which is conducted by a local lay preacher.

Sarah's overall health has improved even though she struggles with everyday matters and can no longer stand, walk or look after herself, her general health is fine. Rushymead is situated in such wonderful surroundings it really is a pleasure to be able to take Mum out into the gardens on a warm day for her to see the wildlife and the picturesque location of the home."
