Aran Court Care Home is a purpose-built residential home for the elderly in the Tile Cross area of Birmingham to the east of the centre. We cater for those who need residential, dementia and nursing care, as well as shorter term respite care, and which is delivered by our experienced team of nurses and care assistants who are on call 24 hours a day to ensure that residents’ needs are constantly being met. Our aim is to make sure that everyone in our care is happy and comfortable and retains as much dignity and independence as is possible.

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

Avery Healthcare has always made the health and safety of our residents and staff a priority, and the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to raise our exacting standards to even higher levels. That is why we are taking the innovative step to introduce a cleaning system into our care homes that is already proven to kill 99.9% of viruses, including MRSA, e-Coli, norovirus and the SARS virus (which is similar to Cov-2, which causes Covid-19).

Avery is now leading in the care sector with the testing of an established cleaning system that refreshes and sanitises a bedroom in less than an hour, with a larger capacity variant addressing communal areas. Keeping both areas clean in this way will be an effective method in how Avery care homes manage their environments, to keep them as virus and bacteria-free as possible.

All Avery homes are now equipped with Topaz Machines ready for when we can allow visiting into the homes. The system hosts two units, one larger which dispenses hand sanitiser to visitors upon arrival and exit; it also provides an important messaging display screen to advise visitors of the latest news, and the other, a smaller screen, which operates as a thermal checker so that we can support temperature checks of those entering the building. Yet another fantastic piece of technology that provides relatives with safer, more efficient visits with their loved ones.

As we’ve learned during this pandemic, we are all in this together. We want our residents, staff, and their respective families to know that when they are in an Avery care home, that it is one of the safest and cleanest places to be. We also want relatives to be confident that their loved ones are being cared for in the best possible way, and for anyone in the position of placing a loved one in to care, to have the peace of mind that an Avery home will be a clean and safe haven

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
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

In another step by Avery Healthcare to help relative visiting during the pandemic, the Group has invested in more outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’ to be installed at all Avery Healthcare homes. 

The pods, installed by Wild Environments, 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.

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.

Our Building and Facilities

We are innovative in our approach to dementia care and are confident in our use of technology in this area. With iPads we can access websites that deal with past events and customs that act as triggers to the memory and as talking points. We build up pictures of our residents lives and

Our bright and spacious lounges and dining areas are as welcoming and as social spaces as we can make them. We encourage residents to take part in regular activities, such as armchair keep fit and ball games, and to venture out on trips if they feel able. On the other hand, they can spend time in their own rooms, and eat there as well if preferred.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food is a vital ingredient to well-being, even more so when you require nursing care. We understand the value of getting the food right and how palates change as we get older, so we make sure that our meals are always freshly prepared and nutritionally balanced. We can tempt people with poor appetites — after all you have to keep your strength up, we cater for any special diets and will go that extra mile for residents who have particular favourites. All the traditional dishes that residents are familiar with will always be on the menu, though our kitchen team like to bring out something a little more exotic from time to time.

There’s always a teapot on the go, with a selection of cakes and pastries that are freshly baked every day, if not exactly like Mother used to make, then as near as possible. Mealtimes are social occasions, but if preferred, meals can be eaten in the resident’s room. On special days, such as birthdays and anniversaries, there is always a cake to complement the celebrations to which family and friends are always welcome.

Activities Are So Important

Our friendly Activity Coordinators are dedicated to supporting each resident with plenty of engaging group and one-to-one activities, based on personal interests. We regularly welcome local groups and schools, as well as a range of lively entertainers to perform for us, but we also enjoy exploring local places of interest and keeping in touch with the surrounding community.

We use reminiscing as an effective way of connecting with those with memory loss. This can often trigger animated talk between the residents themselves. The Daily Sparkle reminiscence magazine is a good resource and can spark off a good old singsong or a trip down Memory Lane. We can arrange Skyping sessions for those who would like to keep in touch with people who are far away and cannot visit.

We are committed to ensuring our residents keep going in mind and body, are stimulated and active, whatever their ability level.
