Symonds house is a nursing home located in Linton – a village situated in the Cambridgeshire countryside. Surrounded by the beautiful countryside, residents are also able to stay connected to the City of Cambridge as it’s only 10 minutes away. The house, is a lovely 55-bedded red brick Grade II listed building that is situated within it’s own grounds.

We are able to cater to a wide range of care categories such as old age, Dementia, Cancer Care, Stroke, Parkinson’s Disease and more. Our care includes both residential and nursing care and is available to our residents 24 hours around the clock from our team of highly trained carers and nurses. Our aim first and foremost, is not only to make sure that all our residents receive the specialist care they require and deserve, but also to make sure they all feel at home. That is why we strive to be as flexible and accommodating as possible when it comes to the preferences of our residents.

Visits may occur in a safe manner and all of the visitor must wear a face mask at all times. We are still awaiting information as to when indoor visits can occur however in the meantime, we are happy for outdoor visitation to occur.

Window and Garden visits – Safe ground floor visits and social distanced of at least 1 metre and PPE is to be worn at all times. There will be designated areas within the grounds to safely social distance.

Strictly no children at this present time.

Indoor Visits are only permitted at the end of life to ensure a person may end their life with dignity and family and a maximum of 2 persons from the same household with full PPE to be worn.

Visits must be booked in advance to ensure safe provisions for cleaning the designated areas between use.

Responsible Visitor Code:

Book in advance for the day, time and length of visit
Check in with the home prior to arrival
Be free of Covid symptoms on the day of visiting and if unwell, Do Not Visit
Provide honest Screening questions
Comply with infection control and PPE guidance or you will be asked to leave the premises for resident and staff safety
Comply with social distancing requirements and only remain the designated area for visiting
At this point, you may not use the bathroom or kitchen facilities on site; we can provide drinks outside, upon request
Ensure any gifts brought in for your relative can be easily sanitised
Relatives are to check in to the home on arrival to ensure their details are recorded for track and trace purposes
As there are rising cases and possible second waves and local lockdowns, relatives are asked to work with the home in case visitation is required to be suspended at any point in the future. In the event of any suspected or actual outbreak, relatives will be communicated with in an open and transparent manner. Always being prepared has been essential to planning through the pandemic and has kept your relatives and staff safe and we continue to appreciate your support.

All further government changes will be updated in due course. Once again, thank you all for your cooperation.
