Cautious Welcome For Plan To Re-Open Care Homes

Resumed relative visits must be carefully managed
Care providers have given a cautious welcome to plans to allow relatives to visit care and nursing homes in the coming days.
The Independent Care Group (ICG) says enabling relatives to visit their loved ones is vital to both sides’ mental and physical health after the Covid-19 lockdown.
But it has urged caution and warned that a resumption of visits must be carefully planned and staged to avoid contributing to a second wave of coronavirus.
