COVID-19 vaccine rollout at Country Court Care and Nursing Homes in Lincoln

Staff and residents at Country Court Care & Nursing Homes in Lincoln have received their first COVID-19 vaccinations.

The vaccination rollout at care and nursing homes in the area Lincoln area continued over this weekend. Staff and residents Eccleshare Court Care & Nursing Home, Swanholme Court Care Home and Ruckland Court Care Home in Lincoln and Neale Court Care Home in North Hykeham have all received their vaccines.

“Our staff and residents have been very patiently awaiting the moment that we can start to receive the vaccine,” said Susannah Barker-Milan, Home Manager at Eccleshare Court Care & Nursing Home.

“We certainly see this as a step in the right direction back to normality. I’d like to thank all of our residents, staff and family members for their understanding and fortitude during what has been a difficult time for everyone.

“We are now starting to look forward to receiving guidance for welcoming families and visitors back to our care home.”

Staff and residents at Country Court Care Homes have been eagerly anticipating the rollout of the new Covid-19 vaccine in their homes.

The government announced that vaccinations in care homes were to begin before Christmas and with over 2000 staff and 1500 residents in Country Court Care Homes across the country, the vaccine has been keenly anticipated for several weeks.

So far over two hundred staff and residents received the Oxford Astra-Zeneca vaccination at the four care and nursing homes in the Lincoln area.

“We are delighted that the vaccine rollout has started in our care homes,” said Alykhan Kachra, Co-CEO at Country Court.

“Our homes have always been places where people can feel safe and secure, and now residents and staff have the added reassurance of receiving the COVID-19 vaccination.

“Together with ongoing regular testing, this will give staff, residents and their families much-needed comfort and peace of mind.”

The latest national lockdown has left many elderly people feeling vulnerable in their own homes, as they are cut off from the support of family and friends. The rollout of the vaccinations will give people the confidence to consider moving to a care home, either permanently or for a short respite stay whilst shielding during the lockdown.

“Country Court Care and Nursing Homes provide much-needed stimulation and social interaction, with the opportunity to enjoy activities safely in the company of others, alongside person-centred 24-hour care and support.
