We operate an open visiting policy within St Theresa’s Nursing Home, however to facilitate our Residents we request that visiting hours would begin after 10.30am to 9pm in the evening. We request no visiting at meal times i.e. 12 noon to 1pm and 4pm to 5pm to ensure our Residents can dine in comfort uninterrupted. Should a Resident require assistance at meal times we welcome family interaction to encourage and facilitate their needs if they so wish. Should a relative wish to dine with their loved one this can be arranged with staff, particularly on special occasions. The visiting hours can be extended once discussed with the Nurse on duty keeping in mind the privacy of the other Residents.
In order to facilitate the privacy of our Residents we request that all visitors wait in the foyer area to enable staff to announce their arrival and partake in precautionary infection control measures as appropriate. St Theresa’s Nursing Home reserves the right to impose restrictions on visiting arrangements where the visit or time of visit is deemed to pose a risk or where the Resident themselves requests restrictions.
