Opened in September 2019, Poets Mews Care Home is our new, purpose-built residential & dementia care home in Clevedon, North Somerset and will be Avery’s 60th elder care service to open nationally. There is quite a buzz around our new Clevedon care home, new residents are joining us every few days and if you live locally you may have heard of our neighbouring independent living, retirement home The Hawthorns Clevedon which is also situated in Clevedon, overlooking the seafront.

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.

Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a 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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

There is much to enjoy here for both Poets Mews residents and family members alike. We are a vibrant and supportive community, we make friends quickly and our loved ones are always made to feel welcome.

Our dining arrangements ensure that meal-times are both sociable and nourishing. All our seasonal fare is prepared on-site by our chef and his team, who can often be seen ‘following the food’ at mealtimes getting valuable feedback from our residents. Our residents preferences and specific needs are important to the team and they will happily arrange for something different to be served on days when the menu doesn’t meet your tastes or your dietary requirements simply require it.

Of course guests are welcome to join in our activities, our cafe can get quite busy with family and friends coming and going. It tends to be a popular space for our residents too, who enjoy the hum of conversations and the clinking of china tea cups on saucers. Between meals we enjoy plenty of tea and freshly baked cakes and biscuits, and when the weather is fine, we enjoy are large rear garden and potting shed too.

Activities Are So Important

We all know what we like and that’s great but at Poets Mews we also like to encourage our residents to try something new. Our well-being programme of activities is designed to keep body and mind in great shape and along the way we have a lot of fun and make new acquaintances. In fact a sense of companionship and support is inevitable when there is so much going on, whether it is a simple board game, a film in our fully equipped cinema or a day trip out in our mini-bus across Somerset or to Bristol. We know that an active home is a supportive home as it helps people to settle in their own time and keep stimulated through the energy of other staff, guests and residents.

Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy a bit peace and quiet too, so you will always find a space where you can enjoy the daily papers or a quiet nap if you so choose. It’s up to you how you spend your day at our Clevedon care home.

Companionship and most of all, fun, is never far from the day to day at our care home. We regularly invite community groups into the home, whether it is local volunteers from around Clevedon, scout groups or local schools and societies. We believe that residents should maintain and develop whatever interests or relationships they have enjoyed within the wider local community. We often find that residents share similar interests and we support those residents in any way we can to enjoy and maintain their hobbies or interests with other like minded people.

Enjoying our garden in the company of other residents is of course a popular a past time but so is maintaining it. We like to keep in garden ‘ship shape and Bristol fashion’ for all to enjoy and our gardening club sees to it that standards never drop!

Life is what you make it at our care home in Clevedon, come and have a look around and see what a thriving care community looks like. See for yourself what a it means to contribute to and be part of something special. See for yourself why we think we are the finest of care homes in Clevedon.
