Here at Merit Homecare, we are open as usual and our services are running as normal. The welfare and safety of our services users and our staff is always our main priority. Therefore, we are taking the following precautions;
- All staff are wearing and using PPE in line with government guidance for example; masks, aprons, gloves and anti-bacterial hand gel
- All staff are washing their hands thoroughly upon entering a service users home and when leaving the property
- All staff, including office staff, are following government advice and practising social distancing, staying 2 metres apart wherever possible.
- If you need to visit the office, you will need to wash your hands on arrival, wear a face covering, have your temperature taken and sign into the visitors book.
During these unprecedented times, we appreciate that many of you will have questions or concerns about the care being received by either yourself or a loved one. Please do not hesitate to contact us on 0191 229 1010 with any queries you may have.
