We are deeply saddened to report that one of our residents has passed away after testing positive for COVID-19.
Our thoughts are with their family and the families of all of those who have lost loved ones to this terrible virus.
As the country heads into a second lockdown, the death in our home is a stark reminder of just how deadly Covid-19 is.
In the last few weeks, we have had 13 residents and ten staff test positive for Covid-19 at our Northfield Nursing Home.
While this will be a distressing and worrying time for residents and relatives alike, our heroic staff are continuing to do all they can to minimise the spread of the disease which is sadly widespread in our city again.
Palms Row will provide all of the necessary support to make sure that ongoing care for residents continues in the same high standards that we have provided for many years.
We have also just opened a new visiting pod at Northfield which means that residents can continue to have visitors throughout lockdown and as the colder weather continues.
We hope that a second pod at Westbourne will be operational before the start of December.
I want to say a sincere thank you to you all for your patience and understanding throughout this pandemic.
Nicola Richards, Director
