Elderly residents of a Jewish care home in north London were recently reunited with their loved-ones for the first time since the start of the lockdown.
The independent care home Jewish Choice revealed today that it opened its doors to family members last week, giving each visitor a time slot over a three day period.
During their visits, the residents’ special guests were scattered across seven socially distanced areas on campus to meet family members staying at the 51-bedroom facility.
The care home provider’s chief executive Paula Peake said: “We are prudent most certainly, but nonetheless proactive in our planning, to ensure that the elderly in the Jewish community, who are currently living in their own home, can once again benefit from our extraordinary care.
“We can now address the very isolating impact that the fear of contracting Coronavirus has had on the elderly in the community and are also delighted we can be open for their relatives once they are living here.”
The independent care charity set up nearly 300 years ago revealed last month the launch of its new safety procedure when welcoming new residents.
