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

Avery Healthcare has always made the health and safety of our residents and staff a priority, and the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to raise our exacting standards to even higher levels. That is why we are taking the innovative step to introduce a cleaning system into our care homes that is already proven to kill 99.9% of viruses, including MRSA, e-Coli, norovirus and the SARS virus (which is similar to Cov-2, which causes Covid-19).

Avery is now leading in the care sector with the testing of an established cleaning system that refreshes and sanitises a bedroom in less than an hour, with a larger capacity variant addressing communal areas. Keeping both areas clean in this way will be an effective method in how Avery care homes manage their environments, to keep them as virus and bacteria-free as possible.

All Avery homes are now equipped with Topaz Machines ready for when we can allow visiting into the homes. The system hosts two units, one larger which dispenses hand sanitiser to visitors upon arrival and exit; it also provides an important messaging display screen to advise visitors of the latest news, and the other, a smaller screen, which operates as a thermal checker so that we can support temperature checks of those entering the building. Yet another fantastic piece of technology that provides relatives with safer, more efficient visits with their loved ones.

As we’ve learned during this pandemic, we are all in this together. We want our residents, staff, and their respective families to know that when they are in an Avery care home, that it is one of the safest and cleanest places to be. We also want relatives to be confident that their loved ones are being cared for in the best possible way, and for anyone in the position of placing a loved one in to care, to have the peace of mind that an Avery home will be a clean and safe haven.

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 Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
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 Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
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

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

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.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Yes, our care home provides a telephone in all our resident’s rooms.

More details coming soon

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

Our Building and Facilities

Our lounges are happy places to be in too, whether to join in one of the many activities with others or to sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

That is not say we don’t have screens. We have found that using the internet and iPads yields a wealth of resources, especially for conjuring up memories, a very useful tool for those with memory loss. And if relatives live abroad or cannot visit very often, Skyping is a great option. Don’t worry, we are clued up and able to convince residents of the benefits of modern technology!

We have a lovely garden and use it, when the weather is good, for exercising, gardening and sometimes for just having a nice cup of tea and a cake.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Dining is an integral part of life at Lavender Lodge. We recognise that eating is a focal point of the day and much anticipated. So our chef and his team take pride in cooking up delicious meals and giving residents good choices, though some will always stick to their favourites. Eating what they have grown themselves, like the delicious tomatoes and lettuces from the garden, always adds a bit of interest.

We recognise that feeding the elderly can be tricky at times as palates change and appetites wane. So the kitchen team is always ready to listen to residents’ preferences and if there is something that they really fancy, will do its best to oblige at any time. And yes, breakfast in bed is always an option! We encourage healthy eating and always have fruit and savoury snacks available, but many won’t be able to resist the fresh cakes and pastries that are baked every day! And they taste even better when you’re enjoying them in good company.

Activities Are So Important

You’re never too old to join in the fun. We make sure that life doesn’t come to a halt just because you’re in a care home. Our energetic Activity Coordinators are there to make life as stimulating and varied as possible. For instance, you can:

  • Have your face painted
  • Grow tomatoes
  • Indulge in a cream tea
  • Plant out petunias
  • Stroke a pony
  • Make a bug house
  • Dance to sounds of the 60s and 70s (even if it’s only in your chair!)

Your well-being is our goal and we do our best to cater for all, build on strengths and encourage new interests. Life is a journey and we like happy travellers! Talking of which we like to get out and about as much as possible and visit all manner of local hotspots, whether it’s a trip to the theatre or just a Sunday lunch down at the pub.

Family and friends can keep in touch with what is going on through our Facebook page, which contains videos of the day’s events and tells them what is coming up.  They’re always welcome to join us.
