It is so important that the water systems in Care Homes are regularly tested.
If you have someone you love in a Care Home or you are looking for Care Home provision, make sure to ask the Care Home Owner or Manager when was the last time their water was tested for Legionella which can lead on to the killer disease, which is Legionnaires Disease. To be absolutely sure, ask to see their water test certificates. If they are out of date or cannot provide one, maybe you should ask the question, would you want to place your loved one in that environment. This simple question could save your loved ones’ life.
