Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Update

18th May 2020

We are delighted to say that Rathside remains virus free at this time – and we constantly keep our fingers crossed that our vigilance and hard work enables it to stay that way.

Hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel and we will be reviewing our visiting policy again at the beginning of June. We cannot guarantee that everything will go back to normal straightaway. A staggered approach may well be necessary to enable us to follow all the necessary guidelines to keep residents, staff, and yourselves safe.

In the meantime, we are continuing to keep in regular contact with families via telephone, Whats app, Messenger , Text or email, and our Facebook page is regularly updated with lots of lovely photos of our residents taking part in a wide range of activities.

I would like to say “Thankyou” to all our families from myself and the whole Team for all the treats, words of encouragement and cards of praise we are receiving. It means a lot to us. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can see you face to face once again, but in the meantime please continue to take care and stay safe.
