Meet The Manager

Andy Newbolt is Home Manager at Summer Fields.

Andy Newbolt began his care career 18 years ago and has completed NVQs in Health and Social Care and a Diploma Level 5 in Management and Leadership. He has been at Summer Fields since 2018.

He says: “I enjoy being a part of a team that is making the lives of our residents as happy and comfortable as possible, ensuring that their care needs are met each and every day. Over the years I have developed a vast knowledge of dementia and what it takes to provide an excellent standard of care to those who are vulnerable and dependent on others. I have progressed from kitchen assistant to senior care team and now home manager. I really do love my job and the challenges it brings each day - every day really is different. It means so much when you see the people you look after not only living happily, but thriving. I have an incredibly dedicated team working alongside me. They, and the rewards of the job, are why I will always enjoy this job.”

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 are doing everything we can to keep people safe. We have robust procedures in place to ensure we are following the latest government guidance. We have always had excellent stock levels of mask and other PPE to ensure we are never without. We were committed to only allowing admissions following a clear covid 19 test, and this has been our stance since the start of the pandemic on 12th March 2020. We ask all new admissions to isolate in their rooms initially to be extra sure that they do not have the virus or any symptoms of it. We train all staff in infection control and support them practically in following the new procedures in their roles.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.

Safe Visiting Space

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.
