Meet The Manager

Anto Kunniparambil is Home Manager at Ashurst Mews Care Home.

Ashurst Mews Care Home is situated just outside Northampton in the village of Moulton and was rated in September 2019 by the Care and Quality Commission as being an Outstanding care home, something that only 3.7% of care homes achieve in the UK.

We offer residential, nursing and dementia care and like to involve all our residents in every aspect of home life, make new friends and even take up new hobbies. After all, you’re never too old for something new.

Respite Care Yes

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

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.

Our Building and Facilities

We have a lovely garden which surrounds the home and is wheelchair accessible, of course. Sitting out in the sunshine and admiring the roses when the weather is fine always raises our spirits. Our interiors are beautifully designed and allow plenty of room for all sorts of activities, socialising, or just for sitting quietly, if you prefer. Our cinema room is very popular, with those good old musicals firm favourites.

Family and friends are urged to come and visit as often as they like and get themselves as involved as their loved ones. The better the communication, the better the care. Come and enjoy an afternoon matinée in our cinema with us; we’ve even got the popcorn.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We like our cream cakes and tea of course, especially when we can sit in the garden or when we have a fete or open day. But we make sure we have our fair share of healthy food and fresh fruit and vegetables as well. Our chef only uses fresh food, locally sourced if possible, and cooks on the premises, taking care to make the three main meals a day nutritious and balanced.

Dining is an integral part of life, an important focal point of the day. One of our highlights is having themed days, when our cruise ship (not a real one, a model) calls in at various locations. For instance, when it stopped in India, we had a lovely choice of samosas, pakoras and bhajis as well as just plain popadums.

There’s always a choice on the menu, so all tastes are catered for, as are special diets. Come and see for yourself and join us for a meal or a nice cup of tea and cream cake!

Activities Are So Important

We put a special emphasis on keeping bodies moving. A healthy and active body means a healthy spirit and positive outlook. Some of residents had great fun in hosing down the patio and getting rid of the bird poo recently. They didn’t just sit there and watch others at work, they did it themselves! We enjoy sitting-down activities too. Here is some of what we do:

  • Daily exercise session with personal trainer
  • Cinema Club with all the good old favourite films
  • Monthly visits of exotic animals and birds from the team at Zoo Lab
  • Going to the local church and clubs
  • Pottery lessons
  • Going out for fish and chips

We have established strong ties with local schools and associations, which ensure that residents remain part of the wider community. The local Moulton Residents Association host their meetings at Ashurst,and residents help deliver their magazine. Moulton Church comes in for monthly Sunday services. We often have trips out with the other nearby Avery homes, Spencer House and Cliftonville, so we have a wide social circle to draw on.
