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.

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

Lounges are inviting spaces to linger in, as are the enclosed courtyard gardens, perfect spots for sitting out on warm sunny days – parasols at the ready, naturally! There are quiet corners too for one-to-one chats.

We are well respected for our dementia care and have a dedicated Memory Care Suite, equipped with its own sweet shop and the tills and scales of yesteryear. Those were the days when sweets came from a jar and you gobbled them from a paper bag.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Residents like to go out to tea, but they’re treated at home too, as home-made cakes and pastries are baked daily. Very nice to have them out in the garden, or when a guest drops in to our Tea Rooms. For those who enjoy a tipple, there are aperitifs before meals and a glass of wine is always an option. It’s also possible to order food throughout the day from the kitchen.

We have three wholesome meals a day, all carefully thought out and nutritionally balanced, using fresh produce sourced from across Warwickshire and cooked on the premises. The seasonal menu varies regularly, so there is always something different on offer, and Chef regularly creates themed culinary days. Our “follow the food” policy means that Chef is happy to chat to residents about the menus and find out what they really like — and what they don’t!

We have large communal dining rooms, the one on the ground floor opening out onto the courtyard – lovely in summer. Meal times are when we all come together and there is a convivial atmosphere and plenty of chatter. Families often join us for meals and special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. Come and join us and even try a cream tea!

Activities Are So Important

Our in-house team of Activity Coordinators (the Ladies in Pink) arrange an imaginative programme of events and activities to suit all tastes; there is always something going on every day. Take a look at the list below of some of the things we do and you will get the picture:

• Visit by ZooLab (handling snakes and spiders!)
• Latin American dancing
• Wildlife films
• Singalongs
• Visits to Warwickshire garden centres
• Listening to the Orchestra of the Swan
• Trips out with neighbouring care homes in Nuneaton
• Going on a barge trip
• Our green fingered Gardening club

Schools like to drop in and see us — the little ones always raise a smile, as does the local community theatre group. We’re always open to new suggestions for activities, so the list is always expanding. Residents just have to tell us what they like and we’ll see if we can do it. Keep an eye on our Facebook pages and you’ll see what’s going on.

There is free Wi-Fi throughout the home and we use of the internet and i-pads for our memory activities. YouTube is a good source for past events and trips down Memory Lane which relate to and stimulate the residents. The Daily Sparkle is a popular reminiscence magazine which gets the tongues going too.
