It has been purpose-built to meet the specific needs of older people and anyone referred here to recuperate will receive the very highest standard of convalescent care within a beautiful environment which is on a CQC “OUTSTANDING” rated site.
The unit – which we are very proud to say was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC – was commissioned early May and to date and started taking admissions on 8th May.
The service has already been demonstrating good results having achieved discharges following periods of recovery having tested negative for COVID-19 and now returned back home. This has brought us all great pleasure, not only because the outcomes have been positive, but also because we know we are supporting colleagues and patients in other nursing homes across the city.
The aim of every team member here is to allow the families of the patients referred to the Florence Unit to feel both confident and relaxed.
We want them to know that their loved one is receiving every element of the care they need in a beautiful and homely environment. Whilst home may always be the place where everyone ultimately wants to be, we believe that our unit here is the next best thing, and the team are doing everything possible to protect and care for both the physical and mental well-being of those in our care.
The Florence Unit illustrates the valuable contribution which Equilibrium Healthcare is making to the fight against COVID-19 and we hope that what we are achieving here provides confidence and reassurance to the people of Manchester and beyond.
Indeed, the fact that Manchester Council chose their most highly, ‘Outstanding’ rated service to treat their residents who had COVID-19 shows the great commitment they too have given to overcoming the challenges of this crisis and this should be recognised and applauded.
Like everyone else, we are looking forward to a time when the greatest risk from the pandemic has passed; a time when life can return to something close to normal.
Until that time we will be doing everything we can to keep our patients (and the wider community) safe, and tend to those in need with compassion, professionalism and respect.
