Kingsley takes part in national trial of digital technology

Kingsley Healthcare has been taking part in a national trial to test the use of digital technology for communication in care settings. NHSX, the digital arm of the health service, has partnered with Facebook for the pilot, using the Facebook Portal device. All of Kingsley’s care homes around the country have been given the device so residents can keep in touch with their family during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Kingsley protects care home staff and residents with 12 month stockpile of PPE

Kingsley Healthcare has secured a 12 month stockpile of PPE (personal protective equipment) for the protection of its care home staff and residents. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the group has spent more than £400,000 on masks, face shields and other protective equipment, ensuring that its homes across the UK have a constant supply. Kingsley CEO Daya Thayan said: “There has been widespread reporting about the availability of PPE in care homes. Kingsley is proud that as an established top 20 large care home group we have made sure of availability to all our care homes from the outset of the pandemic.

To our residents, their families and friends, and our staff

he health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff team are always our top priority and we want to update you on the measures we are taking in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Our plans will be kept under regular review and updated as advised by the public health authorities. We have a Covid-19 committee which was set up in early March 2020 and regular virtual meetings are held to share best practice, guidelines and advice. We are still taking admissions into our care homes but want to put your mind at rest regarding the safety measures we have in place. If the prospective resident has not been tested they will be screened for symptoms of Covid-19 and, if appropriate to move in, will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days.
