Meet The Manager

Katie Hoare is Home Manager at Acer Court Care Home.

Acer Court Care Home is situated in Nuthall, off the A610 Nottingham Road, just a five-minute drive from junction 26 of the M1. Our home is adjacent to one of the entrances to Broxtowe Country Park and has been offering residential and dementia care to the city of Nottingham since its launch in 2012. It also offers shorter term respite care, when those looking after a loved one are in need a break.

We have earned a reputation as an excellent residential care home, benefiting from a good relationship with the local community and with Nottingham’s healthcare professionals. Faith groups and the national volunteering charity, Attend are regular contributors through their Friends of Care Homes programme.

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

We are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

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

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.

Our Building and Facilities

Our lounges are well equipped with everything you need for a happy home life, but the most important ‘equipment’ is our ethos of compassionate care which focusses on the well-being of all our residents. We know that moving into a home is all about change and that can be difficult when you get older, but we do our best to make sure that everyone settles in well and quickly, and that we set families’ minds at rest.

We have a lovely garden which is well stocked with raised beds, potting sheds and benches. Our south facing courtyard is nicely warmed by the sun and parasols are at the ready to shade those taking a tea or coffee.

We believe that your later years should be as enriching as any other, and that being cared for shouldn’t mean that your quality of living is compromised, whatever your age, whatever your condition. The design of our homes and our carefully selected staff, combined with our diligent approach to each and every resident, affords them the opportunity to flourish, make new friends, maintain contact with their local communities and live a life of possibility.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Yes we do have tea outside when it’s warm enough. We share the garden with our neighbour Alder House, so residents from each home often meet up there. Our three meals a day are served in our spacious dining room. All meals are made fresh every day from locally sourced ingredients, and our diverse menus are shaped around the preferences of our residents. The chef will always act on the feedback that comes back from the diners and if there is something they really fancy, then we’ll do our best to see that it’s put on the menu.

Mealtimes are often highlights of the day. Residents share a good, restaurant standard of dining and like to chat about what they have been up to. We like to make sure special occasions are always marked and residents get to pick their favourite birthday cake when it’s their turn for the Happy Birthday song. Guests can feel free to come to birthday parties and at any other time they like, for that matter. Come and see and taste our healthy food for yourself!

Activities Are So Important

We use the Daily Sparkle, a reminiscence magazine, to brighten up the day. It has big, bold print and acts to jog memories with its tales of bygone days and sets people talking about their lives. It’s just one of the ways we get our residents stimulated and involved with one another. Our ‘ladies in pink’, our Activity Coordinators, who have a pink uniform, concentrate on activities that help create the greatest sense of well-being in our residents, whether through mental, physical or social stimulus.

If you look at our Facebook page, you’ll see what we do. You might think we do a lot of dancing! But dancing is now one of the best exercises – it’s official! And those little Irish dancers were an inspiration to get those knees up! We also have weekly yoga sessions and chair exercises for those who cannot get up onto the dance floor. And was that a football in the corridor on one of the Facebook pages? Is that allowed?

We like to get out of the home too and you will often see us out and about visiting garden centres, shops, pubs, theatres, parks and even a local festival, or just going for a stroll in the countryside. And if you’re coming to visit, which we very much encourage, make sure you’re turned out well or all those ladies with their lovely painted and manicured nails will put you to shame.
