COVID-19 Precautions at Silver Birch Care

We have introduced the following to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, and to safeguard the welfare of our staff and young people in all our homes.

LFD and PCR Testing

All homes are provided with free lateral flow devices (LFD) and PCR testing kits. We recommend that staff and residents conduct regular tests.

Antibacterial Dispensers

Antibacterial hand gel dispensers have been set up by the entrance of all our homes.

Providing Products

We distribute potentially ‘hard to source products’ across all our homes including face masks, toilet roll, antibacterial wipes, antibacterial hand gel, female sanitary products, bleach, long life milk, pasta, rice, flour, tinned foods, and pre-packaged meat.

Monitoring Health

All homes are provided with non-contact infrared digital thermometers to check the temperature of staff and young people on a daily basis.

Providing Information

We supply all our colleagues and young people with up to date announcements from the NHS, HM Government, and local authority sources.

Please note that we will continue to update all policies and procedures accordingly, and will adhere to all government guidelines as they change.
