The right to visit people in care homes - updated 13/1/22

Updated: Jan 20

DHSC guidance on visiting care homes was updated again on 13th January 2022. The guidance states:

‘every care home resident can nominate up to 3 visitors who will be able to enter the care home for regular visits (this number does not include essential care givers or preschool age children)

the duration of visits should not be limited if safe visiting practices can be maintained

during an outbreak, care providers should also continue to offer visits in well-ventilated spaces with substantial screens, visiting pods or from behind windows.’
