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 communal spaces are well thought-out and planned, excellent for group activities, all important dining, and for just being quiet in. 

We have a beautiful secluded garden which is a real focal point for home life, whether it’s working in the greenhouse or just sitting in the sun having a nice cup of tea. We also have outstanding links with the local community and like to see as many different people coming through our doors as possible.

Activities Are So Important

In case you didn’t know, a Starliner is a 1960s’ Ford car, and very stylish too! Residents were lining up to have their photo taken with it at a recent Vintage Tea Party we held. Bet that took them back a bit!  Although it’s not such high jinks every day, we do our best to keep minds and bodies occupied and alert. For instance with:

  • Trips to the stately homes and gardens
  • Bingo, quizzes and painting
  • Shopping trips to Bexleyheath Shopping Centre
  • Football – passing skills if not scoring goals!
  • Our very popular one-to-one sessions
  • Getting nails painted

Our full-time Activity Coordinator always finds stimulating things to do and places to visit. The home has its own minibus, which is always ready for an airing. We are keen on using modern technology to the best advantage: Skyping keeps friends and family who may be far away in close touch, and iPads are an excellent resource to use in programmes for those with memory loss. All these things contribute to the enrichment of residents’ lives.
