Advinia’s Response to the Coronavirus

With the worldwide outbreak of the Coronavirus, we have been working hard for some time to prepare for the impact that this may have here in the UK.

Read our full response

From Friday 10th July 2020, we are offering appointment slots to enable external visits by a nominated family member to those residents who are able to go outside. The nominated visitor has to be the one consistent visitor for several weeks, and so we are asking families to agree to this before arranging visits, as we do appreciate many residents have several family members who would wish to visit.

Please phone Goldielea to book an appointment, at least 24 hours in advance of the desired appointment, on 01387 730471.

There is a very strict process to go through to enable safe and socially distanced visiting, which we can go through with you either prior to the visit, or on the day of the visit.

We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation in this first step towards the new “normal”.
