Vaccinations & Infection Control

As B&M Care continues to navigate through the complexities laid out by the Covid-19 pandemic, the group would like to reassure you that the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and residents remains paramount.

Our Infection Control Assurance is a commitment to minimising the risk of Covid-19 to our existing residents and staff, whilst safely welcoming new admissions into our homes.

In addition to PPE, regular testing and safe admissions, B&M Care has now successfully completed the first phase of the group's vaccination rollout.

These procedures are in place to meet and exceed the requirements of those considering a B&M Care Home for a loved one.
