TAKING A JAB AT BEATING COVID-19
Residents and team at The Old Vicarage Care Home in Clay Cross were one of the first to receive the vaccine against Covid-19.
“This is brilliant and will save some lives and I am glad they came to the home, much better than going out in the cold” said Mona a resident at The Old Vicarage.
“It is human contact you miss. We have been so lucky to have visiting rooms installed so we can sit and chat with our families when the government allows, which I believe, not all care homes have, and some people haven’t seen their families since March” adding “I am looking forward to the day when we can all have a hug.”
Home manager Chris Harpham said the vaccination “is the early steps towards a beginning of an end, following a ‘rollercoaster’ year for residents, relatives and team.”
The Old Vicarage has over 70 residents and team members of which the vast majority received the vaccine. “We did this for the safety of our residents and to try to bring normality back to all our lives,” said a senior care coordinator.
Hairdresser at the family-run Old Vicarage Care Home, Paul Gordon was surprised to see a familiar face when he returned to the home to continue his services as the resident hair stylist.

“When you wash your hands, which should be frequently, you have to make sure you give them a really good scrub. A quick rinse under the tap isn’t enough, you have to get right into the gaps between your fingers and under your nails too,” said Stella Brailsford, aged 76.
