Covid Safe Visits at Riverside
At Riverside we have set up one of our bright, airy and spacious rooms to be a safe environment for visitors to come and finally see their relatives and friends. It is a comfortable space with a protective screen but still allowing for a good old catch up and natter.
The last few months have been exceptionally tough for most, and it is a delight to watch residents being reunited with their loved ones in a safe and protected way. We strongly believe that it is a huge benefit and so very important to our residents with Dementia and other such challenges to maintain as much family contact as possible. These visits not only prompt discussion of fond memories but also boost mental health. It is inevitable in this climate that we all have our down days, however seeing the smiles on our residents faces as their husband, wife, son, daughter or best friend walks through the door validates the importance of staying connected.
It is also a delight for staff members to see familiar faces once again, we look forward to seeing more of you once this challenging period is over. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank families for their support and understanding during what has been a difficult and unprecedented time.
