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

We are following the advise of National and Local authorities including Public Health England and our local Infection Control and Prevention team.

All necessary protective equipment will be supplied and visitors may be asked to complete Lateral Flow tests.

Visits will be by appointment only. The Home's team will inform you about what arrangements are in place to keep you, our residents and team members as safe as possible.

Should there be positive cases of COVID in the Home, then visits will not be permitted.

Team members and residents are being tested as per the latest guidelines.

Many thanks for your patience.

Unit Lead - Wembley House

Hello, my name is Layla,

I began working at Hilltop Court in 2014 as a newly qualified nurse.  

I am the Unit Lead of Wembley House, which is the male unit.  Working on Wembley House is challenging, however, I enjoy the daily challenges this brings.

My passion is to provide person centred, holistic care to all 24 residents This at times can be difficult, as they all have different stages and levels of dementia, which requires them to need our specialist EMI nursing unit.  We therefore, work alongside the residents and families so that we can customise the care we provide to each individual resident's needs.
