    Visiting Care Homes Safely

    You may be wondering whether restrictions on visiting care homes can be eased now that official figures have just confirmed that the NHS has offered the COVID-19 vaccine to residents at every eligible care home with older residents across England. Even if you or the person you’re visiting have had your COVID-19 vaccination, you must still follow guidance to keep yourself, your loved ones and the other people living and working in the care home as safe as possible.

    John's Campaign Survey on Care Home Visiting

    Do you have a family member or friend living in a care home ? Is access improving? Is family contact becoming more meaningful and appropriate? If not, where do the problems lie? Healthwatch Sheffield, Disability Sheffield, Sheffield Carers Centre and Age UK Sheffield are all supporting a survey by John’s Campaign, which wants to make sure that people can visit relatives in care homes safely. This survey can help Healthwatch Sheffield see what visiting is like for you, and whether more needs to be done to support you and your relative or friend to have meaningful contact. The closing date for the survey is 30th November 2020.

    Healthwatch Sheffield Want to Hear from People Living or Working in Sheffield Care Homes

    Due to the Covid-19 outbreak Healthwatch Sheffield cannot visit care homes to hear from residents directly , but it’s more important than ever that they hear about people’s experience of living in residential or nursing care.
    If you or a relative live in a care home, or if you work in one, Healthwatch Sheffield would like to hear from you and will then share good practice and raise issues with Sheffield City Council, as well as various boards and committees across the city to make sure your voice has an impact.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
