The purpose of this guide is to highlight some of the ways in which residential and nursing homes have responded to the current Covid-19 pandemic in order to ensure that residents are safe, needs continue to be met and wellbeing is promoted, in what is very challenging and difficult circumstances.
This guide has been compiled from desktop review of policy and best practice guidance, together with interviews with a selection of providers and commissioners from across the North West region. This guide is an attempt to stimulate ideas on how providers and commissioners can develop and enhance services in the context of Covid-19, whilst simultaneously building future resilience into providers existing infection control plans.
