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 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 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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our head chef works closely with the Riverside Place clinical and care teams and is kept informed of residents’ nutritional needs. They can cater for specialist dietary needs, including soft and fortified diets.

Menus change regularly and include a variety of hot and cold dishes. We also reflect residents’ suggestions into our menu plans, so if there’s something your loved one would especially like to sample, let us know.

Riverside Place has beautiful dining rooms, laid out with small tables as in a restaurant. To create a sense of occasion, tables are beautifully laid with crisp table linen and shining glassware. If your loved one would like a glass of wine with their meal, they just need to let us know.

Residents are free to eat in their room if they prefer, and if they find they’re peckish between meals, there are always snacks and drinks available.

Activities Are So Important

At Riverside Place, each day is full of fun and fulfilling experiences. Your loved one decides how they want to spend their day, and we help to make it happen.  We have a dedicated Wellbeing Coordinator whose job it is to plan and organise rewarding and enjoyable activities, outings and entertainment, all based around residents’ interests.

So, whether you want to do a gentle exercise class, an art session, you like to get up close to exotic animals, love a competitive quiz or baking up a storm, we’ll make it part of our activities programme.

Music and singing are always popular with residents, and we’re forging links with local entertainers – singers, dancers and musicians – who will visit the home to perform for us. School children who want to practice their performing skills are always welcome, and we love seeing volunteers of all ages who would like to help with activities or simply spend time chatting one-to-one with residents.  Residents with green fingers can help us to keep the gardens and outdoor spaces looking wonderful. In short, if your loved one has a particular interest, we’ll set up an activity or group – they can even lead it if they wish.  We incorporate national events into our activities too. We love any excuse to have a party and decorate the home, whether it’s for Burns Night, a royal wedding or Halloween.

We don’t believe in making residents do an activity if they don’t want to. If your loved one enjoys reading the paper, doing a jigsaw or staying in their room, that’s fine by us. We’ll respect their choices and support them however we can.
