Nido Care and Cleanliness Commitment
Cleanliness and safety, with you in mind
- You’ll see us more often in high traffic communal areas, cleaning and sanitising high touch items. Think door handles, tabletops, lift buttons, exit buttons – all will be getting our undivided attention.
- Social distancing is still important to keep everyone healthy, so we ask that you keep your distance from other residents as much as possible when passing through the common spaces and always wear a face covering.
- For your safety, we’ve added floor stickers showing you the right distances to be apart and reconfigured layouts to maximise use of communal areas, whilst maintaining a safe distance.
- The new cleaning schedule will be published for you to see, and if your room needs an extra deep clean, you can book add on cleaning services via reception for £20 per hour. This is building specific so speak to a member of our reception team to arrange this service.
Nido Safety and Security Commitment
Supporting our team so they can support you
