Brookfield nursing home closed to visitors

Domociliary care service to continue

Brookfield Nursing and Residential Home in Ramsey has decided to close to visitors.

Staff say the decision has been taken in light of the coronavirus outbreak, and following consultation with Public Health and a local GP.

Wellbeing sessions which are run at the home by a therapist are suspended for now as well.

The domiciliary care service which the home runs will continue - it's done by separate staff.

Anyone with concerns should contact bernie.ross@brookfield.im or call the home on 817867.

Staff are making attempts to contact families regarding these measures but realise this may take time, hence them putting out this message as well.
