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 delighted our care home staff and residents are in the priority groups for the Covid-19 vaccinations, as this is the most vital tool in the fight against the virus. As of January 2021, every member of staff and resident at Country Court has been offered the first round of the Covid-19 vaccination. This means that all 33 of our care homes have started the vaccination process, with many having received the second injection already. For those unable to receive the vaccine initially (such as anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 28 days), we are receiving regular visits from our local GPs to administer the first jab as soon as possible. This is the same for any new residents or staff in our homes, all of whom will be offered the vaccine as soon as they join us at Country Court.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
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 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
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space
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.

We have no rivals when it comes to upholding family values and principles;

  • Promoting a "dining experience" with award winning food and drink, where residents are in charge
