We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your thoughtful words and well wishes. It is your support and understanding that make all the difference to us in these challenging times, and we appreciate each and every one of your messages.
Since our last update and as part of our ongoing testing, we have unfortunately identified that additional residents and staff members have tested positive for Covid-19. We take little comfort in the fact that the outbreak appears to be limited to just one unit, Linden Lea. However, we are continuing to vigilantly monitor the situation and are taking the matter extremely seriously. All residents and affected staff are continuing to isolate to reduce the risk of spread, and we are working closely with Public Health Scotland to manage the situation. In tandem with this, we continue to strictly observe social distancing and the use of PPE, with stock levels remaining plentiful.
We are doing everything that we can to support and ease the concern of our impacted staff members, residents and their loved ones at this time, and sincerely thank our dedicated team of carers for their courage and hard work, as well as all of you, for your ongoing kindness. We will continue to keep you updated as and when we know more, and if at any time you have questions or concerns, please do contact the home on 01698 539440.
