Meet The Manager

Janet Bromley is Home Manager at Pemberley House Care Home.

Pemberley House is situated next to the Golden Lion roundabout in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Our residential care home became a member of the Avery Healthcare family of award winning care homes in 2017. Since then, Avery has been working hard to ensure that Pemberley House matches other Avery homes in its supportive, vibrant and companionable atmosphere, providing residents with stimulation and activity, as well as engagement with other residents, families and with life in general.

Round-the-clock compassionate care and active minds and bodies come as standard, and so does a recognition of the importance of good lines of communication with friends and family. After all, adjusting to life in a retirement home after a lifetime of independence can be a challenging time. Residents settle quickly at Pemberley due in part to the supportive and friendly atmosphere we have fostered.

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

Avery Healthcare has always made the health and safety of our residents and staff a priority, and the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to raise our exacting standards to even higher levels. That is why we are taking the innovative step to introduce a cleaning system into our care homes that is already proven to kill 99.9% of viruses, including MRSA, e-Coli, norovirus and the SARS virus (which is similar to Cov-2, which causes Covid-19).

Avery is now leading in the care sector with the testing of an established cleaning system that refreshes and sanitises a bedroom in less than an hour, with a larger capacity variant addressing communal areas. Keeping both areas clean in this way will be an effective method in how Avery care homes manage their environments, to keep them as virus and bacteria-free as possible.

All Avery homes are now equipped with Topaz Machines ready for when we can allow visiting into the homes. The system hosts two units, one larger which dispenses hand sanitiser to visitors upon arrival and exit; it also provides an important messaging display screen to advise visitors of the latest news, and the other, a smaller screen, which operates as a thermal checker so that we can support temperature checks of those entering the building. Yet another fantastic piece of technology that provides relatives with safer, more efficient visits with their loved ones.

As we’ve learned during this pandemic, we are all in this together. We want our residents, staff, and their respective families to know that when they are in an Avery care home, that it is one of the safest and cleanest places to be. We also want relatives to be confident that their loved ones are being cared for in the best possible way, and for anyone in the position of placing a loved one in to care, to have the peace of mind that an Avery home will be a clean and safe haven.

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.

Activities Are So Important

Residents enjoy armchair exercises, the arts and crafts club, sewing, growing herbs and vegetables in the raised beds and watching all the birds on the bird feeders. The garden is a sun trap and a lovely place for a morning coffee or afternoon tea and having a good old chinwag. We have our own minibus which finds its way to the local Basingstoke and Hampshire sites of interest, the shops or the local pub for lunch. We work up an appetite which serves us well when meal times come around.
