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

Booked visits to manage the amount of foot fall in the home at any one time. Checking visitor temperatures on entry to the building, twice weekly Covid testing for all staff.

Introducing Fresh Living - A New Level of Infection Control

In addition to the high standards of hygiene and cleanliness already in place within our homes, Ideal Carehomes has successfully launched an initiative called ‘Ideal Fresh Living’. This renewed focus towards infection control is our direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


From the frequent sanitising of all surfaces to frequent deep cleans and the hiring of extra staff to manage cleanliness, Fresh Living instills in our residents and their relatives a sense of safety and protection against the risk of infection. Each Home Manager and Regional Director perform regular routine audits to ensure that our high standards of sanitation are met.


Our modern, purpose-built care homes provide the perfect environment to implement natural ventilation into daily life. Large social areas along with spacious bedrooms and en-suite facilities allow plenty of personal space for each resident.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
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.
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.
