“We have strict infection control measures in place throughout the nursing home.

“The people we are targeting for a ‘stand by list’ are health professionals, perhaps recently retired nurses or health care workers.

“We are also looking for housekeeping/cleaning/catering staff who may be laid off temporarily from the hospitality sector.”

“We would like to thank our residents, their families and our wonderful staff for their understanding at this difficult time for all.”
