Meet The Manager

Cathy Charley is Home Manager at Priory Court Care Home.

The historic town of Stamford has been voted one of the best places to live in the UK and we think our Priory Court Care Home is pretty good too. It’s situated on the Priory Road, in a quiet residential area of the town and has been sympathetically built to fit in with the historic local architecture. It overlooks the ruins of St Leonard’s Priory, as shown on the Lincolnshire web page. The A1 is only a minute’s drive away and there are good public transport links to Peterborough and beyond.

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.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
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 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

In another step by Avery Healthcare to help relative visiting during the pandemic, the Group has invested in more outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’ to be installed at all Avery Healthcare homes. 

The pods, installed by Wild Environments, 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.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Yes, our care home provides a telephone in all our resident’s rooms.

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Priory Court has three resident chefs who have been with us for several years and they never spoil anything, unless it is the residents. They know by now how to look after everyone and keep them nice and healthy, how to tempt someone who is not wanting to eat and how to take care of any special dietary needs. They might spoil them with all the tasty cakes and pastries that are available for that morning coffee or afternoon tea, but there is always a supply of fresh fruit as well to choose from.

There are three dining rooms, and residents can enjoy private dining with friends and family when those special celebrations turn up. The chefs will spoil you a little then too!

Activities Are So Important

Glancing at our Facebook pages, you might be excused for thinking that life is one long round of parties – judging by the glasses of sherry, Buck’s Fizz and champagne that are being raised! True, we like to celebrate when a celebration’s due, and we take our fun seriously. But we treat everyone with the utmost care and thoughtfulness while making sure they enjoy life to the full and realise their full potential. Life doesn’t stop just because you’ve moved out of your own home.

In the 15 years since it opened Priory Court Care Home in Lincolnshire has established strong ties with local community. We have an especially warm relationship with the Malcolm Sargent Primary School, where residents are always sure of a friendly welcome when they come for school plays and concerts.

Community involvement works both ways as sometimes the community comes to us: the volunteer bereavement group, Cruse for example, holds its regular monthly meetings in our building. Our residents regularly hold meetings themselves to decide which excursions they want to go on, what activities they want to do and which charities they want to support. As we have our own minibus we can easily get out and about. These are just a few of the things we’ve been up to:

  • Sailing on Rutland Water (strapped in of course!)
  • Visiting Stamford Arts Centre
  • Taking an excursion in a narrowboat on the Stamford Canal
  • Going out to pub lunches
  • Going to church

We stay at home sometimes too and keep our minds active with quizzes and fingers nimble by knitting. A screening of good old musical on a Sunday is a treat, and often gets everyone singing along too.
