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

Our residents are able to meet their families within our specially constructed 'visitor pod'. The pod is available to families who book an appointment via the home on 01704 535786.

Our staff team at The Brunswick are tested weekly and our residents are tested monthly.

New residents to our home undergo a COVID test prior to move in and can come to us, if that test is negative. Once in the home new residents are kept safely in their own rooms for 14 days to ensure that they do not display symptoms of the COVID virus, post move in. Full details of the move in process, are available from the home.
