Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe
We are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We realise that mealtimes are focal points of the day and much anticipated, but also that palates change and appetites wane as people get older or are recovering from illness. So our chef makes sure that all food is of the best quality, fresh, and locally sourced across Kent if possible, at the same time making it look as tempting as possible. There’s a choice at every mealtime and any special dietary needs are catered for. If someone fancies that special something that isn’t on the menu that day, we’ll do our best to rustle it up for them.

Delicious home baked cakes and fresh pastries available throughout the day, along with fresh fruit, juices and drinks. And if a relative or friend would like to share a meal and a glass of wine with us, they are very welcome to do so.

All day snacks, Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

We find trips down Memory Lane fun for the staff and stimulating for the residents and staff. Local Kent history is always fascinating and brings the generations closer together. Reminiscing is often educational for us and invigorating for the residents, sparking off conversations. And talking of sparks, we are avid readers of the Daily Sparkle, the reminiscence magazine devised for nursing homes such as ours, to get people talking.

Our Dreamboats and Petticoats evening also got the residents moving – if not on the dance floor then getting with it in their chairs. Our approach is holistic, that is we care for mind and body, keeping brains and bones active, and our energetic Activity Coordinators enjoy devising a fun programme that will have something for everyone. Our residents also enjoy clambering aboard the minibus, getting out and about across Kent and finding new places to visit.

Elvy Court Nursing Home has established strong ties with local schools and associations who play a valuable role in ensuring residents remain part of the wider community. We fundraise for local Sittingbourne charities.

Like every young person today, we are up to speed with screens and make use of iPads and the internet both as resources and as a means of fostering good communications. Our Facebook pages keep family and friends in the loop and encourage them to come along and join in with whatever is going on. The more the merrier!
