Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Following government guidelines which came into effect from 19 July 2021, there are no longer any limits on the number of people or households that can meet indoors or outdoors. In addition, the requirement to socially distance have ended.
This means we will no longer have restrictions on visitors allowed into our schemes, or on the use of communal areas. We are mindful that some of our people and residents will have mixed reactions to the lifting of these restrictions, and while some may feel relieved and excited, others may be feeling anxious or concerned. With this in mind we're encouraging everyone to act responsibly and safely, and respect other people's wishes in terms of personal contact and space.
Wearing a mask in communal areas will be a personal choice for employees and residents, though this may change if there are cases at a scheme. Employees at our Extra Care schemes will continue to wear a mask when they are delivering personal care.
We are welcoming residents at our new developments and you are welcome to make a viewing or reservation appointment with our New Homes Consultants.
House moves continue to take place and you can learn more about the steps that we take to keep you safe by clicking below.
Many of our residents are already taking advantage of the benefits of moving into Extra Care Living schemes during these challenging times, including the assurance of our on-site care team 24/7, the availability of hot and cold takeaway snacks at our on-site café/bistros and convenient access to outdoor space with our landscaped gardens. At our Retirement Living schemes residents can benefit from the support of their Court Managers and 24 hour emergency response should they need it.
Our operational teams are working hard across the country to ensure we can continue to support our residents in their daily lives.
Our Court Managers remain the key point of contact for our residents.
For all emergencies, residents should continue to contact the Appello Careline. For all other enquiries, including repairs, the Court Manager should be the main point of contact. If you do not live on one of our schemes but need to contact the Court Manager for any reason, the number can be found at the bottom of the individual court webpage on our website.
