At Heritage Lifecare, we are committed to keeping our residents and staff safe throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. We continue to work with the Ministry of Health and local Health Boards to ensure best practice within our Care Homes and Villages.
Visits from friends and family is an important part of our residents’ wellbeing.
We will continue to have visitors in our Care Homes and Villages, with extra precautions and screening in place. We ask if you feel unwell or have been in close contact with Covid-19, that you don’t visit until it is safe to do so.
There may be a need to close a Care Home or Village to visitors if there is an outbreak of Covid-19 within the home or local community. If necessary, we aim to do this for a short time, with the best interests of our residents and staff in mind. We do not make these decisions lightly and recognise that visits from family and friends are vital.
If you have any questions about visiting, please contact your local Care Home Manager.

E-cards & Emails
Electronic cards and emails are a great alternative to hand written letters. We are happy to print these out and share with your loved one.
If possible, we encourage you to drop a communication device off to the Care Home, for your loved one. This will enable yourself or your loved one to contact each other whenever you please.
