Alan Campbell MP has welcomed the reopening of care homes to visitors saying “This was an important first step in reuniting residents and loved ones. I know that many local people provide care and support to an older person they don’t live with and the lack of visits was really having an impact on people.”

Age UK has written a useful guide for those caring for an older person living in a care home and what the rules are for visits. The guide includes:

  •  An explanation of the Single Named Visitor policy
  • The Essential Care Giver policy
  • What to expect when visiting a loved one in a care home
