At Bramley Care, the care and safety of all our residents, clients and staff is our absolutely highest priority. With this in mind, we have currently stopped all visits to both Bramley House and The Old Rectory until further notice, so that we can do our utmost to keep our residents safe.
While we fully understand how important it is for our residents to have contact with their families and friends, we are sure you all understand why we have had to take this decision. Our staff encourage our residents to stay in touch with their loved ones via phone and Skype, giving them whatever technical assistance they may need. The added benefit of keeping our homes so well protected from the outside is that, inside the homes, our residents can socialise freely with each other, enabling them to stay safe, happy and active, in the environment they know and love.
Inside both Bramley House and The Old Rectory, and on our Bramley Home Care rounds, we are taking every possible precaution to ensure that our residents and clients are kept safe from Covid-19. Our staff are all fully trained in the necessary precautions that must be taken at all times, and always use the correct Personal Protection Equipment. Please rest assured that the safety of our residents, clients and staff is always our highest priority, but especially in these challenging times.

Update: 20th May 2020
We know how much our residents are missing their loved ones at this difficult time, so Bramley Care have bought two summerhouses, just like the one in the picture, to be used as garden meeting rooms. We are hoping to install them in the gardens at Bramley House and The Old Rectory as soon as possible, to allow friends and family to visit. The garden meeting rooms will be fitted with a glass safety screen in the middle, between the residents and their loved ones, to minimise the risk of our residents contracting the Covid-19 virus. It will just be so lovely for our residents to be able to see their loved ones again! We’ll let everyone know as soon as they are ready for use.
Update: 22nd May 2020
Work is well underway for the new Garden Meeting Room at Bramley House. It won’t be long now before you can see your loved ones again!
Update: 26th May 2020
Good news is always worth sharing – our latest round of 124 Covid-19 tests, on all our staff and residents, at both The Old Rectory and Bramley House, has given us a completely clean bill of health. It’s what we expected, but it’s still always reassuring to have it confirmed. Thank you so much to all our wonderful carers, domestics, entertainment staff and chefs, who have done such an amazing job keeping our precious residents safe, well and happy in these challenges times.
And work on our new Garden Meeting Rooms is progressing really well too!
Update 29th May 2020
Work on the new Garden Meeting Room at The Old Rectory is now underway. Once the foundations are in place, the rest of it goes up really quickly!
