Meet The Manager

Helen Walters is Registered Manager at Kimberley Care Village.

I am a qualified RMN, I have worked in health care as both a nurse and nursing assistant for over 34 years in a variety of settings both within the NHS and private nursing and care homes. My very first qualified nurse job was in an adolescent service, moving into a senior nurse in both forensic and acute settings finishing off the latter years in Dementia services.

I believe we work in the resident’s home, they don’t reside in our workplace; life for those individuals diagnosed with Dementia should be filled with as much happiness, singing, dancing, love, laughter and smiles from those of us who support them.

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

All staff complete a lateral flow test before coming to work every day, and also undertake a PCR test weekly.  After several days off or a holiday all staff undertake a PCR test before coming back to work.

We offer virtual visits via Skype and Facetime, as well as Zoom and other media formats for families to see their relatives.

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
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.
