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.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

In December 2020 Avante Care & Support proudly launched their new visitor cabins across all 10 of their care homes across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich, so that residents can meet safely with family members despite the coronavirus outbreak. This has meant families are able to keep in contact with loved ones until actual physical contact is possible once again. 

Fitted out with comfortable chairs and decorated with pictures, the cabins will support families to visit loved ones in a safe and welcoming environment. The cabins have separate entrances for the resident and visitor and all furniture and the inside of the structure is thoroughly cleaned after each visit.

When the new visitor cabins opened in December families were keen to make use of the new visiting facility and immediately booked visiting times to see their loved ones. The cabins have been warmly welcomed by everyone and staff have been inundated with positive messages and feedback about the new visiting facilities.

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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

The dining experience is an important part of life at Parkview. The experienced catering staff prepare fresh meals throughout the day that are nutritious and cater to the dietary and cultural needs of the residents

Sharing meal times with others can provide structure to the day and increase the enjoyment of food. The impact of good nutrition on the health of our brains cannot be dismissed; our brains need nutrients to work and remain healthy.  Eating well is vital to maintain the health, independence and wellbeing of people with dementia

The way food is presented and served, the surroundings and the company in which it is eaten all add to the satisfaction and enjoyment of eating a meal. This is equally important for a person with dementia: a good mealtime experience can have a positive impact on their health and sense of wellbeing. 


We Serve Food At

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

Activities both inside and outside the home are very important and Parkview residents are often out and about in the minibus visiting local attractions

Avante's Philosophy of Care is the Eden Alternative, which is based on the ehtos that the individual, their likes, dislikes, interests and hobbies are essential for wellbeing and therefore all activities and day to day contact with the residents takes this into account; an activity will be unique to each person, as well as the opportunity to join in a group activity

The Eden Alternative is based on the core belief that ageing should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline.  In a culture that typically views aging as a period of decline, the Eden Alternative philosophy asserts that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow. The Eden Alternative seeks to cure loneliness, not with medication, but by providing residents with companionship and surrounding them with life

Studies show that implementation of the Eden Alternative is a powerful tool for improving quality of life and quality of care for those living in care homes. Also, homes that have adopted Eden as an organisational-wide philosophy have found that there is improved staff satisfaction and retention and significant decreases in use of medication.
