COVID-19

The health, safety, and well-being of our residents, their families, and our employees are our main concern. Our continual commitment to everyone within the Templeton House Care Home community is to protect them as much as feasibly possible.

We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. We recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have followed guidance from the Governments and local agencies to support the wellbeing of our residents, relatives and staff teams.

We will continue to work closely with our staff, residents and their loved ones to support their preferences and should there be any further outbreaks at the home, we will keep you fully updated.

Delivering Unrivalled Care in Challenging Times

In line with recent Scottish Government guidance effective from September 2022, care homes in Scotland no longer require face masks to be worn during visits due to high vaccination rates and other mitigations against COVID-19 in the social care sector and LFD testing is no longer necessary. Face masks will continue to be provided at the home should it be your preference to continue to wear one and staff will support the preferences of our residents who wish for our staff to wear face masks whilst providing them with care.

We would like to reassure you that we will continue to work closely with our Local Health Protection Teams and will follow their guidance should this decision change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Precautionary Procedures

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, our dedicated team has gone above and beyond to ensure everyone is safe. Many new safety measures have been implemented to guarantee that our residents can continue to live their lives as they always have done with minimal disruption.

We can help decrease the risk of COVID-19 in our community by making a few changes to our home and how we function. From keeping in line with government requirements to providing advice and support to all residents and their loved ones, our specialist team at Templeton House Care Home continues to prioritise the mental, emotional, and physical health needs of every individual.

Our Procedures Include

Our dedicated staff work extremely hard at all times to ensure that our residents and loved ones are as safe as possible from COVID-19.

Screen Dividers

Many of our rooms have been fitted with floor-to-ceiling screens and intercoms to provide a safe distance when visiting loved ones while remaining compliant with government regulations. Outdoor meeting spots are still available; please contact us for additional information.

Social Distancing

In line with government regulations, where feasible residents and staff must maintain a one-metre distance.

PPE

Faces masks will be worn by staff in line with government guidance and our residents and relatives preferences. Staff will continue to wear other PPE such as disposable gloves to ensure that the rate of infection is reduced at Templeton House.

Remote Visits

Residents, as well as their friends and family, are encouraged to set up long-distance video calls. We’ve invested in cutting-edge video conferencing technology to ensure that no key moments are missed.

Santisation

Sanitation stations have been placed throughout our home, and both residents and guests are highly encouraged to use our antibacterial gel on a frequent basis.

Keep In Touch

If in-person visits are not available or accessible to you, then we have a range of devices and technology that enable video and phone calls to ensure our residents can stay connected with the ones they love.

Maintaining a Sense of Normality

Our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our residents. As a result of COVID-19, we’ve put in place a variety of measures to minimise infection rates while keeping our home as comfortable as possible. Despite the difficulties during these unprecedented times, our incredible team works around-the-clock to provide a variety of COVID-19 friendly activities to keep our residents active and entertained, as we want nothing more than to lift residents’ spirits.

Keeping Residents In Touch With Loved Ones

We recognise the importance of human interaction and support from family and friends to improve residents’ emotional well-being; keeping residents and their loved ones connected during these extraordinary times has never been more important. Our home is equipped with a range of facilities and technologies that allow our residents to communicate with their friends and family using a variety of methods. Despite the challenges we’ve faced as a result of COVID-19, we’ll keep working together to overcome them and make sure everyone has all they need to stay in touch with those who matter most to them.

All-Inclusive, Luxury Living

Our aim is to provide high-quality care and support to all of our residents regardless of outside influence, and during difficult times like these, we go above and beyond to ensure that our residents are safe, and may continue to live the full lives they deserve. Residents should take advantage of the variety of amenities on offer throughout our luxury home, as well as our action packed activity programme created by our Activity Coordinators.
