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 confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

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

The Importance Of Meal Times

What could be better than fresh vegetables from the garden or tomatoes from the greenhouse, grown by our very own residents? Amarna House’s two resident chefs like to use what is on their doorstep and always do their best to ensure that all food cooked in the kitchen is as fresh as possible. It’s also locally sourced and chimes with the seasons. So all of our residents, and their guests when they like to invite them, receive the very best of nutritionally balanced and healthy meals. Special dietary needs and health considerations are well taken care of too.

Staff are ever mindful that meal times are equally important social events, and like to make sure the table and each dish is as beautifully presented as they know how. There are delicious home baked cakes and fresh pastries available throughout the day, along with fresh fruit, juices and drinks. Wine and aperitifs accompany the meals. Come and have a glass yourself, or a cup of coffee and tempting cake if you would prefer.

Diabetic, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

Amarna House has established strong ties with local schools and associations who play a valuable role in ensuring residents remain part of the wider community. Students from local schools and colleges, including Millthorpe, All Saints School and Manor Church of England Academy Sixth Form, are regular visitors to Amarna, sitting and chatting to residents or getting involved with activities. The students helped create the popular indoor garden area on the dementia floor, a stimulating and sensory space which is open to all. They also like to be involved with arts and craft activities, and many Amarna designs are sold at local fairs, with the proceeds used to fund further events and activities.

The volunteer group, Attend, has helped establish The Friends of Amarna House, and there are now ten volunteers who are regular visitors. They also provide the driver for the home’s minibus, taking residents out on daily jaunts or to specific events and activities. Volunteers and relatives also bring in dogs to visit, which is especially popular with the residents.

Some of our activities include:

  • Making Bugingham Palace (home for creepy crawlies)
  • Drying roses for pot pourri
  • Knitting fish
  • Having a visit from the Lord Mayor
  • Going out to vintage tea parties
  • Potting up orchids in the greenhouse
  • Looking after our free range chickens in the garden (Hope they change their shoes when they come inside!)
