April 2020 Newsletter

Hello from lockdown at a quiet Yew Tree. We hope you are keeping safe?.

It seems like forever since I have written a newsletter so wanted to just send you a little hello and update you all on what we have been up to since the lock down began.

Firstly we would like to say a thank you to all the friends and families who have adhered to the no visiting rule we know this is a difficult time for everyone and really appreciate all you have done to support us in this fight against the pandemic. We will however do everything we can to assist keeping the links to family open. We can provide video calls either via Facebook or Zoom, Telephone calls via the nursing home system and you can send normal post through the usual channels. If families would like to drop off any items for their loved ones, then there is a box located by the front door with deliveries. Please note that all items will be wiped with antibacterial  wipes before going into the home or kept for 72 hours outside so please bear this in mind. The procedure for dropping off items is. Please place the bag, labelled for whom the items are for, by the front door, ring the doorbell and step back behind the barriers. A staff member will collect the delivery as soon as they may be able however please bear in mind there may be a delay if they are busy.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to all the families and friends who have sent the staff cards, letters and gifts showing your appreciation of all the works we have done to protect the Yew Tree family they really are appreciated.

The weather has been very good to us since the lock down began so we are encouraging as many residents that are able to, to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is warm. If any resident  would like to  visit the garden then please speak to a staff member at anytime…………..
