Urgent update: Coronavirus (COVID-19) social care response:
Please find the recent update regarding the decision taken by Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership which affects either you personally, a family member, or someone you care for. We want to reassure you that we are taking all available measures to ensure the health and well-being of our service users and our carers. At this current time, based on what is known of COVID-19 and other similar respiratory viruses, it is likely that older people and those with chronic medical conditions may be more vulnerable.
Recent Scottish Government guidance recommended that long term care facilities be subject to ‘social distancing’ to reduce the risk of infecting residents and their carers. This includes social isolation in rooms and removing removing communal mealtimes.
To continue supporting those most in need, Milan has made some changes to the way services are delivered. Social distancing, shielding and self-isolation are the key elements in this process in order to reduce the spread of infection. Please contact Milan for further information.
