Across Manchester there are 91 care homes. These homes provide a mixture of short and long term support for residents in residential, nursing, and residential nursing specialist dementia care environments.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, we have worked with our partners to carry out a system-wide range of supportive measures to care homes which have continued to develop as the we learn more about COVID-19 and its impact.
We have put together a support plan to help our residents and create a safe environment for our staff.
Our plan includes four main work streams aiming to:
- Improve clinical support and practice
- Support the workforce
- Maintain capacity and improve care outcomes
- Manage and control the infection
