COVID-19 Update

Protecting Our Clients & Carers

At Homestead Care we continue to ensure that we are fully aware of developments relating to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the UK and Ireland. We are regularly reviewing our processes to ensure that they align with Government guidance.

Homestead Care is committed to ensuring all steps are taken to protect the health and wellbeing of all our carers and clients and continues to work closely with the Health Authorities and Care Regulators in order to protect carers and clients and maintain service delivery. 

Advice for Prevention

The best way to prevent infection and spread is to avoid being exposed to it. You can help to prevent the spread of any respiratory outbreak by doing the following:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid close contact with persons who have respiratory illness symptoms.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • If you are unwell, stay at home and contact the 111 Coronavirus helpline.
  • Follow Government Guidance on self-isolation.
