Visitor Restrictions Now in Place | COVID-19

Visitor Restrictions as Recommended by HSE and Nursing Homes Ireland (NHI)

For the protection of our residents, visiting restrictions are now in place in Highfield Healthcare.

No visitors, children or groups are allowed effective immediately. 

All visitors are asked to contact prior to attending. We urge prospective visitors to be cognisant and understanding of the measure that is required in the interest of resident and staff safety. Older people and people in nursing homes with pre-existing medical conditions are particularly vulnerable if they contract the virus. The virus presents an unprecedented situation for our services and the care provided within them. Highfield is imposing the visitor restrictions in the best interests of residents and staff. We thank people for their understanding and patience during this period of unprecedented challenges presented by Covid19. 

Highfield is monitoring the evolving situation on an ongoing basis and is in continuous contact with the Department of Health, National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET), HSE, NHI and all relevant health authorities.
