Throughout the group we are continuing our onging Covid vaccination and testing programme for residents and staff in these current challenging times.

In Broomhill at Massereene Manor they are now doing COVID TASTEing as an additional measure to provide the best possible care as residents are monitored daily.

Residents are being offered a slice of lemon each day to check on their taste and smell between covid tests. This is an innovative and simple way of keeping an eye on residents covid symptoms and the residents seem to enjoy it too – even if their wincing faces don’t show it.

Here’s Jeannette, one of our Broomhill residents trying her lemon slice and clearly her taste buds are in perfect working order – remember the sweet is not as sweet without the sour!
