Perspex screened room allows care home residents to chat to loved ones
Family and friends visiting relatives can now chat to their relatives through a Perspex window in an adjoining room.
The innovative solution to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions also allow residents to chat to their family members through an intercom system.
Paula Colman, general manager of Hickathrift House care home, said the glass divider was fitted to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
“Residents are overjoyed that we have implemented a designated visiting room,” she said.
“It will allow them to continue to spend time with their loved ones for the autumn and winter seasons in addition to the outdoor visiting that has been on offer.”
She said the room at the Marshland St James home had been “designed with both comfort and safety in mind.
“It has been adapted from a room which is accessible internally by residents and externally by visitors.
