Light at the end of the tunnel with national roll out of vaccines for Churchlake Care Group
Here at Churchlake Care, Group of nursing and residential homes, we anticipated a full national lockdown was on the cards. So, when announced, it was of no surprise. This time around, we have the Lateral Flow Test (Rapid Testing) and the PCR Tests in our armoury. We can test colleagues and health care professionals before entering our homes. This has helped significantly but it has still, at times, been a bumpy road. Colleagues at Churchlake Care Group have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents. They are true heroes in our eyes for all the self-sacrifice and dedication they have given. We are so proud of them and cannot thank them enough for their efforts for almost a year since the start of the pandemic.
