Percy House Lockdown - Please read

The welfare and safety of our residents and staff is always our priority. The global outbreak of Coronavirus has heightened the need to take more steps to protect everyone in our home.

A robust action plan to reduce the risk Coronavirus poses to our residents and staff have been put in place to ensure we are taking every possible step to prevent a case at our home but that we are also prepared should this happen.

Following from the several residents meetings that have taken place over the last week the joint decision has been made in line with Government recommendations to put the home into lock-down.

Percy House.

Coronavirus & Visiting Percy House / Percy House Trips

Due to the current concerns around the Coronavirus we are fully adhering to guidelines from Public Health England and with this we have asked that only relatives are to visit the residents in our home.

We have also made the decision to cancel our trips to minimise the risk of infection. 

The health and well-being off our clients and staff is paramount and so we have made this decision and are working to limit the risks. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
