COVID-19

We at Struan Lodge are aware of the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on everyone’s lives, but we are looking forward to begin the process of returning to normalcy.

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.

Prioritising Resident Safety & Wellbeing

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.

Safety Measures

The health, safety and well-being of our residents and employees will continue to be a priority for us. We’ve taken a variety of safeguards at our residence since the epidemic to ensure that our residents may continue to live their lives as they wish, with minimal inconvenience.

From adhering to regulatory standards to supporting residents and their loved ones during difficult times, our loving team at Struan Lodge will do everything in their power to ensure our residents’ overall well-being is being looked after. Our Activity Coordinators have implemented the highest standard of infection control during home activities to allow residents to continue with their hobbies.
