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.

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.
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.

Description

The management at Whiteoaks aims for an inclusive, open and positive atmosphere, involving the staff and service users with many aspects of the running of the Home.

We work hard to ensure that we employ experienced, trained staff. The Home’s staff are selected for their qualities of reliability, integrity, skill, friendliness, openness, trustworthiness, professionalism and above all their caring attitude. All potential staff have to undergo a trial shift to ensure their suitability to the Home. They are carefully screened, POVA and DBS checks are made with two references from previous employers.

Most staff have NVQ Levels 2or 3 in Health and Social Care and those who do not are encouraged to undertake the vocational training. All staff receive a full induction designed to familiarise them with the Home and its operating procedure. New staff also have training in line with the Care Certificate. In addition there are regular training courses which are continuous, covering topics such as Basic First Aid, Fire Safety, Food Hygiene, Health and Safety, Infection Control, Safeguarding, DOLS and MCA.

Activities Are So Important

All of the staff at Whiteoaks aim to give the service users the best possible quality of life. As such we value all of our service user’s social lives, activities and hobbies as an important aspect of their care and strive to find something that they can enjoy doing whatever their capabilities.

We like to ensure that we have at least one group activity daily which usually takes place between 3.00pm – 4.00pm. Our activities include things such as chair aerobics, arts and crafts, skittles, sing-a-longs and making cakes and we are always open to suggestions if anyone would like to do something new or different.

As well as group activities we like to encourage our service users to pursue any personal hobbies they have such as sewing, knitting and/or reading (we have a number of books in the home including a number of large print books and a visiting mobile library).

We like to think that our home is truly a home and as such we like any excuse to celebrate and have a number of events throughout the year such as an Easter raffle, a summer B.B.Q and a Halloween party as well as a number of things leading up to Christmas (for which we always create a special Christmas events calendar with full details).
