A message to all Rathside families and friends…
I have tried to make contact personally with you all over the last couple of days to inform you that we have taken a decision to close the home to non-essential visitors after the last family visits tomorrow (Friday 18th September).
This decision has not been taken lightly. The number of cases of Covid-19 in our area have risen and they continue to rise daily.
The health and safety of the residents and staff is of the upmost importance and we feel that this is the right decision at this time. We will be reviewing this decision weekly and we hope that it won’t go on for too long.
You can continue to call the home to speak to your family member and we will also assist with video calls, Facetime etc.
We will also continue posting photos on our Facebook page and I will email other family members photos of their relative.
We hope to see you all again soon and hope that you understand this decision at this very precarious time.
Keep safe everyone
Pauline and The Rathside Team
