As per Government Guidelines in relation to services for older people, as of midnight on Thursday 22nd October until 2nd December visiting to our service cannot be facilitated; except in critical or compassionate circumstances. In such cases a more individual approach to visiting may be taken as determined by management and the senior nursing and medical team.  

 

Marymount acknowledges the devastating impact the Covid 19 pandemic has had on our residents and their families, especially with regards to the necessary visiting restrictions implemented. We will endeavour to support all our residents to communicate virtually with their families insofar as possible and we ask for your ongoing support. 

 

Please get in touch with the relevant ward/nurse manager to find out other ways we can facilitate connections with your loved ones. 

The above measures will be kept under close review and will be amended as necessary in line with national guidelines.
