We have had to plan for a ‘worst-case scenario’ including significant reduction of available staffing. We constantly review staff availability and prioritise support for people with the most critical need. However, we will not put people’s safety or wellbeing at risk and will liaise with family carers and other members of the person’s circle of support to ensure that we work together. And, we are recruiting new staff and will be raising our profile on social media.
Every member of our teams, in every role, has extensive training and all of us have recently completed additional and updated training in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, including in Infection Control. Staff are all following national guidance in the use of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and cleaning and frequent disinfecting of surfaces.
Thera have some accessible resources on their website for people we support and their families about the virus and particularly how people can keep themselves safe. Staff are supporting people to make sure they understand it and what they should be doing
