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.

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.
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.

Our Building and Facilities

Grange-Lea has been completely modernised and tastefully decorated whilst still retaining its original character and period features. There are four main communal areas. The front lounge, where you can simply relax and see the visitors come and go. The back lounge where most of our entertaining takes place and where you can also catch up on a bit of TV. The dining room with an adjacent conservatory and a kitchenette , and the garden lounge that enjoys direct access to our lovely, well-maintained gardens. Many of the bedrooms benefit from sea views or look out across the beautiful gardens so you're never far from a lovely view. The home is surrounded by stunning gardens that are maintained weekly by our gardener with year-round interest. The garden is easily accessible to all including wheelchair users. We have a very popular seating area where residents can relax in the sunshine chatting with friends or enjoy watching the very well fed rabbits! Throughout the year we hold tea parties, and other events which our residents, friends and family enjoy. Our rooms are spacious with a light and airy feel and many have views across the garden or sliding patio windows leading directly onto private garden areas. All our rooms are regularly decorated and well equipped so you feel comfortable. Our residents are welcome to bring in their own ornaments, treasured possessions and furniture to make their room feel like home. Our friendly handyman can put up shelves and pictures as required.
