COVID-19

The health and wellbeing of our residents is of the utmost importance to us at Rubislaw Park. Keeping you safe is a huge responsibility, and you can rest assured that we take it very seriously.

We fully understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 has had a difficult and overwhelming impact on the lives of everyone. We recognise just how important it is to keep our residents safe and secure and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have followed guidance from the Governments and local agencies to support the wellbeing of our residents, relatives and staff teams.

We will continue to work closely with our staff, residents and their loved ones to support their preferences and should there be any further outbreaks at the home, we will keep you fully updated.

Outstanding Care throughout Difficult Times

In line with recent Scottish Government guidance effective from September 2022, care homes in Scotland no longer require face masks to be worn during visits due to high vaccination rates and other mitigations against COVID-19 in the social care sector and LFD testing is no longer necessary. Face masks will continue to be provided at the home should it be your preference to continue to wear one and staff will support the preferences of our residents who wish for our staff to wear face masks whilst providing them with care.

We would like to reassure you that we will continue to work closely with our Local Health Protection Teams and will follow their guidance should this decision change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.

Preventative Measures

The safety of our residents is our top priority at Deeside Care Home. That’s why we’ve put in place new additional safety and security measures at our facility to ensure that our residents may continue to live their lives as they choose with minimal inconvenience. We can make a major effort to lower the rate of infection with these new procedures in place.

Our specialists at Deeside Care Home are doing everything that they possibly can to help your loved ones remain mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy, from always staying up to date with government social distancing regulations and providing advice to all residents and their loved ones. 

Deeside really puts a significant focus on individual care and the importance of establishing true connections between residents and staff. To continue to do this, we have had to adapt our processes due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Our teams have been able to continue providing exceptional treatment by utilising more and more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), screen dividers, and sanitisation rooms.

Our Measures Include:

At Deeside, we’ve gone above and beyond to ensure that our residents and their loved ones are as protected against COVID-19 as they can be.
