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 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

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.

Our Building and Facilities

Offering residential and dementia care, Scholars Mews was completely refurbished in 2016 and is cleverly hidden behind a row of terraced houses, and is in keeping with the distinctive characteristic of Scholars Lane. Our retirement home is accessed through a gateway that leads cars to the rear of the home.

Housekeepers keep everything spick and span. Scholars Mews benefits from a luxurious cinema, with a touch of the 1930s about it, numerous spacious and comfortable lounges, a hair and treatment salon, and elegant dining areas.

We have Wi-Fi throughout the home and can keep residents up to speed with Skype and Facebook.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our food is so good that once a month we open up the Scholars Mews Bistro to the over-sixties, when a delicious three-course lunch is on offer. And very reasonable too! But the chef sees to it that all our meals are delicious, healthy, balanced and always cooked from fresh on the premises. There’s plenty of choice at every meal and no one need worry if they have a special diet as it will be catered for. We’re quite good at tempting fussy eaters too.

Cakes and pastries are the chef’s special forte – check out our Facebook pages and see for yourself, so coffee time and tea time are as much anticipated as lunch and dinner. Eating together is fun and sociable and induces a convivial buzz of conversation. Maybe the aperitif and the glass of wine we offer with the meals helps things along, so why don’t you come and see for yourself – whether you’re over or under sixty!

Activities Are So Important

Friendships don’t have boundaries here; they exist across all levels — between staff, residents, friends and families and the neighbouring Avery care homes. We even extend the hand of friendship to the bees as we have planted bee-friendly plants in our lovely enclosed garden. Our friendly team of Activity Coordinators also arrange excursions locally in our mini-bus:

  • Making ice cream sundaes
  • Weekly baking
  • Visits to the local Stratford-upon-Avon churches for recitals
  • Regular entertainers
  • Themed activities to celebrate public holidays
  • New and classic films in our 1930’s themed cinema
  • Harp recitals
  • Picnics across Warwickshire

So there is always plenty to do, keeping mind and body active and not too creaky. We take note of residents’ interests, and where appropriate encourage them to share hobbies and knowledge with others. We enjoy occasional trips out shopping, a visit to the local pub or just a stroll by the Avon. Stratford-upon-Avon is always alive with visitors and our residents enjoy the buzz of town, its theatre and impressive heritage.

We have a fully equipped cinema room which seats large groups of residents for afternoon matinées, or sessions of shared reminiscences with residents from local towns such as Leamington Spa and Redditch, and we make a point of involving ourselves in the local Stratford-upon-Avon community. Recently we raised money for Avon Cat Rescue. Is that because we are called Scholars Mews?
