Visiting Fellingate Care Home
In Winter 2020, Fellingate designed a purpose-built pod which is located within the ground floor. After facilitating outdoor visits throughout the Summer months we recognised the need for a safe indoor visiting environment as an alternative to visiting in bedrooms.
The Pod is a warm and welcoming area which allows two visitors to see their loved ones through a Perspex screen and hear them via an intercom system. Visitors can enter eternally and do not require a test. With soft furnishings the Pod is designed to ensure a comfortable and pleasant visit whilst remaining safe.
The Pod has a robust infection prevention schedule ensuring spaces are cleaned after each use including handles, chairs and hard surfaces.
At Fellingate, we have allocated three rooms to facilitate in-house visiting without a screen. The removal of the screen has been a significant and emotional step forward on journey back to normality.
Our rooms are a comfortable homely environment for our residents to have a well needed catch up with their families. Visitors must have a test upon arrival and the visit takes place 30 minutes later if a negative test is provided. Full PPE is provided and is required to be worn by all visitors.

Fellingate has areas within the grounds to enjoy an outdoor visit (weather permitting!).
We are regularly reviewing and updating our visiting protocols when advised by Public Health Authorities.
