Respite Care Yes

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

The welfare, safety and happiness of residents, team members and visitors is our number one priority. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our additional stringent measures are constantly reviewed to ensure we continue to meet Government and Public Health guidance, for everyone’s safety and wellbeing, whilst continuing to offer a comfortable and happy place to live, work and visit.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
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.

Description

Our homes are more than just places of care and everyday living support. They’re also thriving communities in which each person feels part of the life of the home. Listening to our residents is one of the most important things we do each day, so that we can truly get to know them. We always pay special attention to people’s stories ─ because places filled with stories and warmth are places that everyone is happy to call home.

We also use exclusive technology to continuously improve residents’ day-to-day experiences through our Quality of Life Programme. As well as medication dosage, dietary needs and mobility, the system also captures residents’ wants, wishes and preferences, alongside feedback from relatives and professionals. This information is immediately available to Home Managers and their teams, complimenting the normal face-to-face conversations we have each day.

We know what we do is important so we work together to bring a little joy to everyday experiences, whilst striving to always be:

Respected

We treat residents and others as we want to be treated, with courtesy and dignity; showing respect in the way we communicate; involving and including people, respecting differences sensitively and professionally.

Trusting

We have a culture of trust. We open our doors, as we are proud of the special experiences we provide to residents. We act with integrity in everything we do.

Caring

We demonstrate our caring nature through our words, actions and choices. It is at the forefront of our hearts and minds. We give confidence and belief to others that we care.

Make a Difference

We go the extra mile, to say or do something special. We notice the little details that makes us all unique. We have pride in ourselves for our own personal development.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
