Visiting Fellingate Care Home
In Winter 2020, Fellingate designed a purpose-built pod located on the ground floor. As a result, after facilitating outdoor visits throughout the Summer months to, this end, we recognised the need for a safe indoor visiting environment as an alternative to visiting in bedrooms.
Therefore 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. Consequentally, visitors can enter eternally and do not require a test. Complete with soft furnishings the Pod is designed for a comfortable, safe and pleasant visit.
The Pod has a robust infection prevention schedule and 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. Accordingly, 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 to all visitors.
