Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space

In line with government guidance, residents can met their families in an area that they feel most comfortable in. We do have a conservatory that can be accessed externally to the building should there be concerns about entering the home. 

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our Team
Harvey Zemmel
Harvey Zemmel
Owner

Harvey Zemmel has 30 years’ experience as an advisor, operator and financier in care of the elderly. Over the past three decades in healthcare, he has helped to raise the standard and quality of service in elderly care facilities across the UK. It remains his goal to this day. Between 1997 and 2007, he also built a residential care home group from scratch to operating nine homes with hundreds of residents and staff. He believes that nowhere is this ethic more important than in the care of our elderly family members—but it is where some larger organisations struggle. In both of the homes that came under his management in Garforth in 2018, Harvey has built teams that reflect his own values of care, where the needs of residents are foremost. He considers this as the only way to provide the individual in care with quality of life and the family with peace of mind.
