Published: Friday 12th March 2021

Fulford, our care home in Littlehampton has welcomed its first visitors since care home restrictions eased on Monday (8 March).

Latest figures also show that 100% of residents at the home on East Street have received a first vaccination to protect against Covid.

Fulford Care Home, managed by leading independent care provider Agincare, is currently Covid free, continues to carry out regular testing and follow latest Government guidance on PPE, hygiene and visits.

Among the first visitors to Fulford Care Home was Linda Wilson (pictured below right) who said she was ‘over the moon’  to be reunited with mother Heather Calloway.

Registered Manager Kim Maw said:

We’ve had a great first week at Fulford Care Home under the new visit guidelines, and have been really busy welcoming people every single day.

 

The vaccine roll-out and gradual easing of visit restrictions for visits is a great boost for residents and their families as well as for all our team at Fulford Care Home, following a challenging 12 months for everyone.

 

We strive to ensure that Fulford is a place where our existing and new residents feel content each and every day in a safe and happy home, and visits are an important part of that.

Operators Agincare, one of the country’s largest independent care providers, has welcomed the latest figures at Fulford Care Home, as well as the Government’s announcement to ease visit restrictions.

Care Homes Chief Operating Officer for Agincare Tim Buckley said:

We know just how treasured visits are by our residents, their loved ones and our care home teams, and we have already been facilitating safe visits wherever possible during the pandemic, even before the latest Government announcement.

 

The vaccination roll-out of residents at Fulford Care Home is great news and very pleasing indeed. Agincare is working daily with local authorities and NHS teams to ensure any new care home residents are vaccinated as soon as they are able, as well as any remaining care workers across our homes nationwide.
