Meet The Manager

Beverley Aldridge is Home Manager at Albion Court Care Centre.

Albion Court is a purpose-built residential care home on Clinton Street, in the Winson Green district of Birmingham, close to the city centre. We offer residential and dementia care plus also shorter term respite stays. Our residents are drawn from across Birmingham, from towns such as Sandwell, Handsworth, Ladywood, Bearwood and Smethwick.

We are a diverse bunch and that includes our excellent care teams and support staff. We are definitely more than the sum of our parts! Our rich cultural mix is reflected in our meals and the entertainment we enjoy. It is something in which we are very proud. We have a strong community outreach programme, and welcome many groups into our home but we also like to get out and spend time embedded within the various communities from which we draw. We are very much a reflection of Birmingham’s rich cultural heritage and proudly of it.

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 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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our care home in Birmingham is a proud, bustling, diverse community of residents, our home is a welcoming and energetic place, with English, Asian and Caribbean cuisine served daily including Halal, Vegan and Vegetarian options. There is always choice and if you dont fancy what is on the menu then you can ask for something else.

We realise that mealtimes are focal and important times of the day, so we do our best to ensures that the varied menus we offer are both nutritionally balanced and as appetising as we can make them. All our food is freshly prepared in our own kitchens and where possible, locally sourced in and around Birmingham and seasonal too. We make sure than all our different cultures are represented in our meals and eating can be quite a cosmopolitan experience, with Asian, Caribbean and Eastern European foods well represented.

We enjoy many themed culinary evenings and residents are keen to share their recipes with chef and his team. Recent evenings have included dressing up and national costumes, plus family and friends of course. Everyone joins, even the staff, who all reflect Birmingham’s diverse communities.

We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements and that special something that a resident might suddenly fancy. In addition, residents can enjoy a selection of freshly baked cakes (residents might know them as ‘fancies’), snacks and fruit throughout the day — perhaps taking them outside when the sun shines. You can be sure that there will be a mouth-watering home-made birthday cake for those special occasions, when family and friends are always welcome to join us.

Activities Are So Important

Daily life at our Birmingham care home is as fun and engaging as we can make it. Our Well-being Coordinators see to it that there are a diverse array of activities that reflect what is one of the most proudly diverse care homes in Birmingham. These activities are a rich mix and suitable for all levels of ability, we positively encourage the development of individual hobbies and interests. Some of the activities most popular with our residents include music of all backgrounds, poetry, quizzes, arts and crafts, armchair exercises and film screenings.

The range of activities on offer is also varied; including monthly visits from professional entertainers such as Bollywood dancers, African drummers, Soul and Mowtown artists, Jazz musicians and classical music performers. There are regular services from representatives of various faiths and local churches, including a monthly visit from a local church gospel choir.

We regularly have live entertainers to perform at the home as well as visits from local schools – children can always be guaranteed to raise a smile. In fact we welcome all friends and relatives to visit and bring children and grandchildren with them, so that connections across the generations can be maintained. On top of this, we love to explore outside the home in our own minibus. The shops are always a favoured destination, as is the Sea Life Centre in the centre of Birmingham, and the occasional tasty meal at the local pub always goes down well.
