How Covid-19 has changed life at Tudor Lodge


Any new resident moving into Tudor Lodge will now need to isolate in their room for 14 days from their date of admission.  We will keep in regular contact with them and bring them everything they need, they won’t be alone, but they will need to stay away from the other residents and communal areas for that period. Once they have completed the initial 14-day isolation period they are then free to socialise with the other residents.


All residents are tested for the Covid-19 virus on admission to Tudor Lodge and every 28 days.  This involves a throat and nasal swab specimen being taken and sent to a laboratory for testing.  Staff are tested more frequently in order to keep residents safe.


Staff temperatures are taken on arrival each day, and they wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks and aprons around the home.  They are tested for Covid-19 via PCR and LFD tests.

Activities and Socialising

Our Activities Coordinator has organised a busy schedule of activities and events to enable residents to keep active, maintain their cognitive functioning and wellbeing, and socialise with others in Tudor Lodge.  We are mindful of infection control and have adapted activities to allow for social distancing and additional cleaning.  Where residents are isolating in their rooms, personalised activities are provided for them to keep their spirits up.  We also provide means of communicating with friends and family via telephone and video calls.  We look forward to being able to commence our schedule of visits and outings, and also invite friends, family and people from the local community back into Tudor Lodge when it is safe to do so.


While visits are not possible in Tudor Lodge at present, residents can book in advance for up to 3 45 minute visits per week from friends and family in our visiting pod.  The pod has a floor to ceiling clear screen to protect our residents from the transmission of Covid-19, and conversations can be facilitated via an intercom system.  Anyone receiving end of life care can have visits within the home which are subject to further infection control measures.
