The Hyperion Care Home in Fairford has been praised by former Mayor of Fairford, Trevor Hing MBE, who became a resident patient at the home at the beginning of last year.
Trevor has seen at first hand just how hard the staff work under normal conditions, but he says the new levels of care and attention that the staff at the Hyperion are providing now at this challenging time exceed all expectations. “They go above and beyond”, Trevor said. “And all the while, they preserve the dignity of their patients and are professional and very caring.” Trevor likens the Hyperion to a home-from-home especially now as the residents are not allowed outside visitors because of the enforced lockdown measures. He continued: “The staff and the residents are like one big family and we all look out for each other.”
Manager of the Hyperion Care Home, Natalya James, says: “Currently, the Hyperion is Covid-free, which is a real testament to all the safeguarding measures we have in place. We are also very fortunate that we have no shortage of PPE.” She went on to say that it is a difficult time for residents as they are not allowed visits from family or friends, but the families trust the Hyperion staff to get their loved ones through this crisis. “I have received many kind messages from family and friends of the residents” said Natalya. “And I would like them to know that all messages are passed on to the staff, as I want them to know how very proud everyone is of their dedication at this time.”
