As we continue to deal with the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic in NI and make progress with vaccination it is recognised that there is a need to continually review visiting in Care Homes, balancing both risk and the need for families to spend quality time together. 

Why your views matter

We want to hear what matters to residents, relatives and Care Home staff, managers and owners in relation to moving towards normalised visiting in and out of Care Homes - we want to know what is important to each individual and what concerns they may have. This anonymous information will support the plans to move forward. Decisions taken on the way forward will take into account the risks associated with residents, visitors, other residents in the home, staff and the wider community
