Care workers move into Sheffield dementia home to shield residents

A group of care workers have left their families and moved into a care home for a “lock-in” with residents to help protect them from the coronavirus. At Bridgedale House, in Sheffield, nine staff members have packed their bags and said goodbye to loved ones in order to move into the facility full-time, reducing the risk of them infecting vulnerable residents. The care home is now effectively locked down, with staff members staying put and no visitors allowed, although family members can leave letters and gifts outside the main door.
