The majority of care workers at our Bexhill care home have also been vaccinated and the home is currently COVID free, following latest guidance on PPE and carrying out regular testing.

Registered manager Lisa Turner said:

The vaccination roll-out feels like such a positive step forward for us all, with the prospect of brighter days coming after what has been a hard year.

 

All we want to do is simply give our existing and new residents a safe and happy home, including welcoming more visits from family and friends with fewer restrictions in the future.
