Elizabeth House reopened on Monday April 12th - 2021


Elizabeth House, Cookham’s Day Centre for independent senior citizens reopened its doors after lockdown to a phased programme of restriction easing. The first phase  sees two groups of 8 members per day enjoying either a morning session (9.30 – 12:30 pm including lunch) or an afternoon session (1-4pm including lunch).


Our Covid secure protocol will continue to be observed – temperature checking, one-way system, mask wearing, sanitising stations, regular hand washing and social distancing. It is expected that members will have been further protected by the vaccination programme. Staff and volunteer helpers will be tested regularly to minimise any transmission risk.


As the country increasingly returns to normality, so will Elizabeth House’s arrangements. Miriam Blazey, Elizabeth House’s manager said “members have been yearning to get back to enjoy the companionship and support that Elizabeth House provides“. Chris Harris, Chairman of the Trustees, commented “As we are hosting the most vulnerable members of our community, every precaution will continue to be taken to keep our members, staff and volunteers, safe.“
