Our coronavirus-free care home

“We are very pleased not to have had one single case of Coronavirus at our Glastonbury Care Home.”

We are delighted that our Glastonbury Care Home has been fortunate enough to have no confirmed cases of Coronavirus on site since the start of the pandemic.

Jo Craggo, Glastonbury Care Home Manager said: “We are so thankful we’ve not had any confirmed cases of Coronavirus at our Glastonbury Care Home. I wanted to thank my whole team for their tremendous efforts. Like the rest of our care homes across Brunelcare, we followed strict Government advice and were lucky to not have to record a single case. A huge thank you to my team and our residents for keeping in such high spirits.”

Jo says a number of factors may have helped contribute to there being not a single case of Covid-19 record at Brunelcare’s Glastonbury Care Home. Jo said: “It comes down to location of the care home and the strict following of Government advice and my dedicated and passionate employees.”

Throughout the pandemic, the team at Glastonbury Care Home have continued to run activities for residents to maintain their wellbeing and organised video calls with their loved ones when they were unable to have visits.

Sandra Payne, Director of Nursing and Care Homes said: “Glastonbury Care Home's team have worked incredibly hard to maintain a safe and Covid free home. They have practiced excellent infection control measures and everyone has been amazing. All of our Brunelcare Homes have gone above and beyond to keep Coronavirus at bay. We have had minimal cases across all of our sites and for that I wanted to say a huge thank you to all our employees and a huge well done to Glastonbury! They have provided extraordinary care for extraordinary people.”

Glastonbury Care Home is now welcoming new residents. If you're looking for care for yourself or a loved one, visit our website for more information or contact Brunelcare’s Glastonbury Care Home directly: www.brunelcare.org.uk/locations/glastonbury-care-home/
