*UPDATED** – Visiting Signature at Moorlands Lodge
Signature Senior Lifestyle is understood to be the first UK care home operator to invest in 15-minute COVID-19 antigen tests to provide further reassurance, allowing its communities to retain a sense of normality with its residents able to stay connected with their loved ones via carefully managed visits.
We are proud to be offering these tests at Moorlands Lodge, which is already proving to be a huge success in enabling indoor visits for residents’ families and also for visitors who would like to come and have a look around the home. We are offering these visitors the opportunity to conduct the test in the comfort of their car prior to entering the home, providing total peace of mind and allowing socially distanced visits with PPE to take place, rather than with obstructive and cumbersome plastic dividing screens.
Kay Cox, COO of Signature Senior Lifestyle, comments: “Our regular testing has worked well so far but we are continually looking for ways to go one step further. The health and safety of our residents, families and staff remains our number one priority, so we have made the decision to invest in 15-minute tests to further bolster our capabilities, providing almost immediate reassurance. This is a challenging time for all and we truly understand how much visits mean to residents and their loved ones, so we are doing everything in our power to allow these to take place with dignity and a sense of normality.”
Moorlands Lodge has also commenced carrying out these 15-minute antigen tests on our visiting entertainers to ensure that our busy activity and wellbeing programmes can continue within the allowed PHE guidelines. In addition, we are fully equipped with technology including Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Facebook Portals to help keep our residents connected with their families and friends.

“My mother spent 2 years in the main house and for the last 6 months is in Livingstone. At no time have we had any worries. One is always kept up to date. Meals are excellent and a big effort is made around special occasions either generally or to the particular Resident. The staff are always helpful and kind with a lot of respect for the Residents. The ‘outings’ and entertainment is terrific”(Comment from carehome.co.uk, Daughter of resident)
