Meet The Manager

Alice Dunning is The Home Manager at Pratt House.

It’s been quite a journey! I started at Pratt House in 2012 as a carer and became team leader a year later. After a couple more years I became a house manager, then moved to Care at Home part time for a while. I also did a stint as senior house manager at Winnersh when it first started, supporting with the care plans and the medication. I then came back to Pratt house at the end of 2017 as head of care and became the manager in July last year. So I’ve moved around a fair bit and done a bit of everything which is quite nice.

Pratt House is a care home set in its own beautiful grounds located near the quaint market town of Amersham. Within walking distance you will find a town steeped in history with over 150 listed buildings in the Old Town and several places of interest. 

The Amersham Fair Organ museum is a popular attraction where you will discover a collection of fairground organs that will take you on a trip down memory lane. Local shops are within walking distance as well as restaurants, churches, garden centres and transport links with a direct train to London.

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 Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
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.
