Autumna has invited care providers to evidence through third party validation the infection control measures they are taking to keep you and your loved ones safe. With their help we will present whatever information is available to you and identify the provider with a S.A.F.E. badge (Symptom Assessment for Everyone). This is a work in progress, in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Covid-19 Emergency Support Framework

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.

Activities Are So Important

At Highbury House, we really focus on personalisation. Not only do we provide person-centred care for our residents, we take the time to get to know each of our residents so we can tailor our daily activities to their preferences, hobbies and lifestyles.

It is very important to us that residents maintain their routines, hobbies, abilities and skills. Whether its painting, gardening or film-making, we ensure every day is fun and special.

Our dedicated activities coordinator creates fun, meaningful activities for our residents and organises regular entertainment evenings. Relatives and guests are also welcome to join in the fun.

We usually arrange Oomph! trips and other outings for our residents so that they can enjoy a day out with each other and their families. But currently, we have been making use of our large garden for games, activities BBQs and other events.
