In accordance to government guidelines and to keep our residents safe, COVID testing is carried out on our residents every 28 days, as well as our care team three times a week. A considerable time, effort and extra resources goes into testing, including staff training, administrative work and making up thousands of testing kit boxes – Longbow House often find themselves working together as a team to get hundreds of boxes ready for testing (as shown in the picture)!
To ensure our residents understand the testing process, our Speech & Language Therapists have been working effectively on using the appropriate communication for each individual’s needs. This has reassured our residents, which has made testing considerably easier for the resident and tester.
As always, our priority is our resident’s health and well-being, which our team continue to portray throughout everything they do.
