Cuddle Curtain at care home

‘Cuddle Curtain’ lets residents hug their families at Hampshire care home

The Westlands Care Home in Four Marks in Hampshire is letting residents hug their families by installing a Cuddle Curtain.The plastic curtain has arm holes in the top for a family member and in the bottom for the resident.

The care home has avoided any cases of COVID-19 but manager Helen Brown is aware of how a lack of physical contact can have a negative effect on residents. Hugs have not been permitted since mid-March.

“Families enter by one gate and have their temperature taken. Their loved one comes in and the plastic curtain allows everyone to hug without risking coronavirus infection,” she says.
