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 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

We enjoy a large, enclosed rear garden as well as a fine view on to the bowling club. Residents can just watch – no charge! – or even join in themselves. Inside, the lounges are beautifully furnished and spacious and invite making new friends and joining in with the activities. As our sister home Glenmoor is only a few steps away, there is double the opportunity of being sociable and going out on joint trips. On the other hand there are plenty of quiet places too, where you can have a cosy chat with family members or concentrate on a book, newspaper or jigsaw puzzle. We like to feel that Seagrave is a home from home, not an institution.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We might not have Dave and Si, the Hairy Bikers, at our disposal, but our chefs Dave and Andy give them a good run for their money. They recognise that the palate changes as people get older, get ill or lose their sight and aim to make the dishes they serve up as nutritious and colourful as possible. Although they will do hot dogs and burgers for a Rock ’n’ Roll night, and our residents will make peppermint creams for a special occasion, they fully realise the virtues of good, healthy, fresh food.

They have excellent relations with local butchers and suppliers, ensuring that all our food is fresh, locally sourced and, when possible, seasonal and are happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements.

Freshly baked savoury and sweet snacks are available all day as well as fruit. Dining is a happy, social event and an important focus of daily life and comes with a glass of wine and an aperitif. Guests are always welcome to join us in swapping stories of the day. Come and see for yourself!

Activities Are So Important

Some of our residents may have read The Hungry Caterpillar book with their grandchildren, but here at Seagrave, we watched our very own caterpillars turn into beautiful butterflies. We had special holding nets for them and it was exciting day when we let them fly free. Check out our Facebook page to see. This was just one of the many activities in the varied programme that our Activity Coordinators devise for the residents, who are never too old to learn something new. As well as watching caterpillars turn into butterflies we have activities with more immediate results – plenty of art classes, chair exercises to keep the body trim and numerous outings to stimulate the mind. We like to have a rounded programme.

As our home overlooks the Bowls Club, we are ideally located for anyone who wants to touch up their game or learn how to bowl. We have built up strong ties with local sports clubs and other members of the local community and often enjoy the company of local schools, experts who give us talks and performers who come to entertain us – rock and roll anyone?  Or the bagpipes perhaps? Our Facebook pages will keep you up to date.
