Meet The Manager

Maureen Massey is Registered Manager at Allington House.

Maureen Massey is the Registered Manager, and together with a strong team of experienced and trained staff, works throughout the day and night to ensure that our residents’ individual care needs are met with dignity and passion and that the care home feels like a ‘home from home’.

Allington House in Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees, is a purpose-built 49-bed care home specialising in residential care, dementia and stroke-related care. We also provide short term respite care to help families and loved ones take a break from their caring roles. All of our rooms offer en-suite facilities.

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 take no shortcuts when it comes to safety measures, particularly concerning COVID-19. All surfaces are regularly disinfected, staff are highly trained and experienced in sanitisation and the practices of infection control. The highest amount of care is put into our safety and hygiene protocols. Our staff undergo regular testing for COVID-19, and we operate a stringent testing policy for new residents. Any new resident is required to take a coronavirus test – a negative result means they can move in immediately and receive in-room care for 14 days, and a positive result requires them to stay at home for a further 14 days before moving in.

Residents are tested every 4 weeks in England – in Scotland and Wales, tests are only required if a resident develops symptoms or a staff member tests positive for COVID-19. As testing capacity increases, we’ll be able to test more frequently in order to make our homes even safer and more comfortable for residents and staff.

We keep on top of our training regularly. We have infection control leaders who carry out training with our staff and we complete infection control audits monthly. Staff have access to COVID tests at home to prevent any potential outbreaks.

Infection Control Initiatives in place

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.
