Meet The Manager

Paula Pearson is Home Manager at Aire View Care Home.

Recognised by Leeds City Council for its excellence, Aire View is a well-established Leeds retirement home situated off Broad Lane, just across the Kirkstall Bridge. We are rightly proud of our ‘enhanced status’ granted by our local council as there are only a handful of care homes in Leeds to achieve this. As we said, we are the proudest of Leeds care homes! Expertly guided by our manager Paula Pearson since its launch nearly twelve years ago, Aire View offers residential and dementia care to residents who are drawn from across the city and surrounding West Yorkshire.

Resident well-being is our absolute focus and we work hard to ease every resident into their new home. Fortunately we benefit from the enthusiastic support of family and friends, which gives the home its friendly and companionable atmosphere.

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

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

Everyone at Aire View is very sociable and enjoys a great sense of fun and togetherness. Our lounges and café are where you’ll find us joining in activities, mingling over cakes and coffee or perhaps even enjoying a pre-lunch aperitif. We also recognise that sometimes a bit of space is needed and our quiet rooms are always available for some relaxation or just catching up on the papers.

Our garden is the perfect spot to while away the summer months in the company of other residents and is often the scene of Keep Fit and other exercises. The gardening club sees to it that the borders are always looking in tip top condition.

We also take time to pamper ourselves in our very own hair salon and enjoy our popular afternoon film matinées in the cinema room.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Dining is an integral part of life at Aire View. It brings us altogether and is a major part of home life. Chef and the team take pride in delivering a choice of delicious, hearty meals from the traditional to the more exotic. A lot of thought goes into planning our menus and we always use locally sourced seasonal foods for freshness and encourage people to get involved by growing our own herbs.

Between meals there is always a ready supply of freshly baked cakes and biscuits that are freely available in lounges and the cafe and chef can often be seen doing the rounds  after super, making sure that residents comments are taken on board and new ideas shared. Needless to say all dietary requirement are catered for and wine is always available as an aperitif before lunch and super.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

If you look at our Facebook pages you will see that there is quite a lot of singing and dancing going on. Some of it may be done in chairs, but it’s the spirit that counts! When the weather is fine, the keyboard gets taken out into the garden and we have the extra benefit of fresh air to fill our lungs. We like our fun, but it doesn’t happen by chance as we have full-time Activity Co-ordinators who see to it that there is always plenty going on in our retirement home to keep mind and body active and engaged. For instance:

  • Wearing silly hats and glasses
  • Enjoying the cut and thrust of dominoes or Ludo
  • Parachute manoeuvring
  • Brushing up football skills
  • Pilates
  • Gardening

We are very pleased to say that not only does our care home get officially recognised, but so does the garden, winning a Gold in the Residential Care Home category for Leeds in Bloom, Spring 2016. We certainly get the residents perfecting their gardening skills!

Our minibus takes us out and about too, to the local theatre, garden centre, the local Kirkstall pub for a Sunday pint, or a trip on the Leeds Canal. Members of the local community are also regular visitors to us, whether it’s local interest groups, schools or churches; we like to consider ourselves playing a role in local initiatives and events.
