New Guidelines For Visiting Nursing Homes 2020

 

The Minister of State for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler, has introduced the latest guidelines for visiting nursing homes.

The new guidelines for visitors are as follows:

  1. To allow children to visit their grandparents in these facilities but they will not be able to hug them
  2. To wear face coverings and to get their temperature taken
  3. Not allowed to bring in food to the residents
  4. To allow more family members to visit their loved ones but only for an hour a week
