Dear Friend of Greensleeves Care,

As you are aware the Covid-19 situation is evolving extremely quickly, as is the guidance provided by the Government. On 16 March, the Prime Minister made significant changes to how he wants the UK to respond and in line with this news, our own response has been updated.

From today, 17 March 2020, we have taken the difficult but necessary decision to close our care homes to all but essential visitors. This measure applies to the family and friends of our residents.

We will be reviewing this policy on a regular basis and whenever any updated government guidance is made available to us.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly but it is one that takes account of the most up-to-date guidance and places our residents’ safety at its heart. We hope you will both understand why we have taken this decision but also be reassured by it.

As always, our residents’ health and wellbeing remain our top priorities.

Greensleeves Care
