Cumbria Care - Keeping people safe

Whilst many people have concerns, all of our homes and care services have taken a wide range of strict infection control measures to reduce the risk and continue to follow all guidance to keep people as safe as possible.

  • Our staff have been provided with all of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and we have good supplies of this equipment.
  • We are carrying out regular testing for our staff and residents.
  • Frequent deep cleaning is being carried out.
  • We have limited the number of people who come into care homes and our staff are working in bubbles.
  • We continue to update our working practises in line with infection control and government guidance. 

Throughout these challenging times staff have been ensuring residents stay connected with their families, friends and the wider community by facilitating video calling, phone calls, sending letters and postcards and visiting where possible. They have also been getting involved in creative community events such as arts festivals which allow people to feel connected while keeping their distance.
