Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Open with Care: advice on practicalities


This document has been produced in response to questions from care home staff on the implementation of the Open with Care: Supporting meaningful contact in care homes and Open with Care: activities and outings away from the care home  guidance. 

The Open with Care guidance remains the primary source of information that care homes should use.

Open with Care takes a flexible approach in many areas of guidance, this is to allow care homes to consider their own individual circumstances. The key consideration in all decisions should be towards facilitating residents’ meaningful contact and activities where it is safe to do so.
