What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

At Boclair Care Home, our residents’ and staff’s health, safety, and well-being are our top priorities. With this in mind, we’ve implemented a slew of new safety precautions at our facilities to ensure that our residents may continue to live their lives as they like with the least amount of disruption. We can reduce the risk of COVID-19 in our community by adopting a few little changes to our regular routines.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
