Meet The Manager

Samantha Ealden is Home Manager at Acer House Care Home.

Acer House is one of the very finest Weston-super-Mare Care Homes and is situated on Milton Road, overlooking Ashcombe Park. We offer residential care, dementia care and respite care and draw the majority of our residents from the north Somerset and Bristol areas. Acer House is home to a happy community of residents who thrive on the care and companionship we provide. Our focus is always on improving the quality of living for our residents and an emphasis on the role that they, along with their families, can make in shaping home life.

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

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 beautifully appointed home is one of our newest in Weston-super-Mare and furnished to a high standard.

Residents can take advantage of our large, bright and airy lounges for social activities, or take some time out in the smaller, specially designed quiet lounges, which are perfect for reading a book or taking a moment for yourself.

Both of our much-loved gardens are bursting with life, mostly due to the excellent care and attention lavished upon it by our thriving gardening club. The enclosed rear garden backs onto Ashcombe Park.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our light and airy dining room opens out on to the rear garden, so we almost feel that we are dining al fresco. Coming together to eat is often the highlight of the day and our kitchen teams knows how important it is to provide tempting and nourishing food. Naturally, we can cater for any special dietary requirements. The menu at Acer House is varied, changing with the seasons and always consists of fresh, locally Somerset sourced ingredients. Our themed nights provide culinary heights!

Aside from our three set meals a day, and the wine and drinks which are on offer with them, our chef is always turning out wonderful freshly baked treats and snacks for our residents to enjoy. Birthday cakes are a speciality! If you would like to come and taste what’s on offer for yourself, do come along!

Activities Are So Important

There can’t be many residential homes that have their own beach hut, but ours is one of them, and it’s right on the Weston-super-Mare sea front and very easy to get to. Soaking up the sea air and breeze is just one of the activities we do, though. Our lovely gardens, full of sweet peas, lupins and foxgloves suit the green-fingered, while inside there are plenty of singalongs, team games, quizzes and entertainment. Something for everyone. We take pride in going that extra mile: we even managed to arrange a trip on a Harley Davison for one of our ladies, who wanted to revisit her youth one more time.

We welcome many local groups, schools and societies into our retirement home and enjoy the support of the wider north Somerset community. Our Weston-super-Mare care home is situated about a mile from town and the seafront, meaning that excursions to the promenade, the beach or town centre are easy. Often we will meet with our recently opened sister care home in Clevedon and enjoy meeting some new people. We also take trips to local heritage sites and occasionally learn a lot from expert speakers from local museums and societies.
