Light at the end of the tunnel getting brighter for Lilian Faithfull

All residents across Lilian Faithfull Care's five care homes in Gloucestershire have now been offered their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

This second dose gives over 200 residents much needed extra protection against Covid-19. It marks a real milestone and a step forward in Lilian Faithfull Care's journey through the pandemic.

Martin Hughes, chief executive, said: "Tuesday was a day of national reflection. Today is a day of hope for our homes. We know this news will be gratefully received by our residents' families."

The charity would like to recognise the hard work of all its staff who have kept residents safe during the last year. It would also like to thank the local NHS GP teams which have visited the homes and administered the vaccines over the last few weeks.

Suzanne Booker, director of care at Lilian Faithfull Care, said: "We greatly look forward to the extra immunity that this second dose will give."

All Lilian Faithfull Care's homes - four in Cheltenham and one in Stroud - are safely welcoming residents into their care homes. Staff hope this extra vaccine protection news will give people confidence that their homes are one of the safest places to live and work in the county.

The charity's two adult day care centres - the Secret Garden Hub in Cheltenham and Uplands in Stroud - have now reopened. The day centres provide companionship and help combat loneliness for people in Gloucestershire, and provide respite for family carers. Staff have expertise in caring for those living with dementia and other long term debilitating conditions.
